15th May 2013

Garmin, the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced its new 2013 nüvi lineup of Personal Navigation Devices (PNDs). Garmin’s latest navigators make it easier than ever to follow directions and stay on route

Garmin, the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced its new 2013 nüvi lineup of Personal Navigation Devices (PNDs). Garmin’s latest navigators make it easier than ever to follow directions and stay on route. Instead of only using street names, Garmin Real Directions™ guide drivers just like a friend would by telling them to turn at recognisable landmarks, buildings, stop signs and traffic lights. The new Active Lane Guidance features voice prompts as well as a visual lane animation to make sure drivers get in the correct lane. Garmin’s lifetime traffic updates [1] also provide information on traffic incidents by voice. nüvi models with voice command allow users to select a faster route by simply speaking a response. Furthermore, the 2013 nüvi models feature an all-new design and larger screens that range from 4.3 to 7 inches to display driving-related information at a glance. The new top of the line nüvi 3597 LMT comes with a new powered magnetic mount, making it convenient to attach the device and keep it charged.

“Garmin nüvi devices are the gold standard of navigation due to their ease of use, reliability and feature richness,” said Ian Edwards, National Sales Manager, Garmin Australasia. “Our new 2013 lineup significantly improves how navigation can help drivers find their way while keeping their eyes on the road. Larger screens provide driving-related information at a glance and our new Real Directions are easier to follow than ever before.”

Categorised as Essential, Advanced and Prestige, Garmin’s new nüvi devices meet the lifestyle and budget of every customer. The budget-friendly Essential Series is the perfect starting point for any journey with accurate turn-by-turn directions, spoken street names and lane assist with junction views. The new Advanced Series offers additional premium features to guide drivers, such as the new Garmin Real Directions, Active Lane Guidance and lifetime traffic with voice integration. The new top of the line nüvi 3597 LMT combines the best in car navigation available from Garmin. With its elegant styling and ultra-slim profile, nüvi 3597 LMT reflects a refined aesthetic that suits the interior of any vehicle. In addition to features available for the Advanced Series, it features a five-inch multi-touch glass screen in a brushed-metal housing as well as a powered magnetic mount that automatically snaps in once the user holds the device close. This premium navigator also includes lifetime map updates[2], lifetime traffic, 3D buildings and terrain and voice command.

Features of the new nüvi Garmin range includes:

Garmin Real Directions™

Garmin Real Directions guide drivers in a natural and intuitive way. The new feature uses recognisable landmarks, buildings, traffic lights and stop signs to give directions. For example, it tells drivers to “turn right after the Seven-Eleven®” or “turn left at the traffic light.” This provides drivers confidence early on that they’re going the right way and lets them focus on the road instead of trying to read street signs. It also makes it easier to remember a route. Garmin Real Directions™ is powered by the high-quality NAVTEQ® Map to ensure accuracy. Garmin partnered with the leading global provider of map content to develop a sophisticated data collection and processing system. The landmarks and buildings selected for directions have been checked rigorously for visibility, prominence and permanence.

Active Lane Guidance

The new Active Lane Guidance feature uses a combination of voice prompts and visual cues to prepare users to drive through an exit or interchange with confidence. Utilising the larger screens of the 2013 nüvi devices, Active Lane Guidance displays an animated graphic next to the map view that uses brightly colored arrows to indicate the proper lane needed to make a turn.

Improved, Voice-Activated Traffic

Garmin offers free lifetime traffic on selected nüvi models without any fees, subscriptions or ads, helping drivers to avoid delays. The 2013 Advanced and Prestige Series now make it even easier to assess the traffic situation and decide on whether an alternative route makes sense or not. Voice integration lets drivers know if there is traffic on the route, what the expected delay is and if there is a faster route. nüvi devices of the Advanced and Prestige Series that include voice command allow drivers to select an alternative route by simply speaking a response. Garmin’s new traffic interface also depicts important traffic information next to the map view, including the expected delay as well as an animated graphic that indicates the traffic situation ahead in real-time.

More Information at a Glance

Garmin’s 2013 nüvi models feature an all-new design and larger screens that range from 4.3 to 7 inches, displaying more driving-related information at a glance. The new and refined interface keeps the driving map onscreen at all times and displays additional information in slide-in windows, such as points of interest along the route and real-time traffic. A new Up Ahead function provides easy access to points of interest nearby. Up Ahead appears alongside the driving map and constantly informs of nearby services, including restaurants, petrol stations, hospitals and stores. In addition to speed limit warnings, the new nüvi units also provide school zone warnings.

Garmin Express

Garmin Express is a new and seamless way to keep nüvi devices up to date. Users simply download the free software to receive free lifetime software updates. Garmin Express also provides an easy way to update maps, backup or transfer data and download content, such as free vehicles icons, voices and dashboards.

The nüvi 3597 LMT and selected models of the Advanced Series are compatible withGarmin Smartphone Link, an Android app that provides live services to the PND, utilising the smartphone's mobile data plan [3].

The new nüvi lineup is available now.
