“Combining two of Garmin’s most popular features – speech recognition and lane assist with junction view – the nüvi 885T lets drivers keep both hands on the wheel and takes the guesswork out of navigation,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales. “And with enhanced MSN Direct services, the nüvi 885T provides much-needed travel information like traffic updates, flight status, Doppler radar, gas prices, news and business headlines and a wireless ‘send to GPS’ capability.”
The Garmin nuvi 885T gives clear guidance on a 4.3” color touchscreen display (480x272 pixels), and is preloaded with maps of the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico. For faster satellite prediction, the nüvi 885T has Garmin’s HotFix feature which automatically calculates and stores critical satellite information. To give drivers the ultimate in awareness, these nüvis also display speed limits for highways and interstates.
Garmin also offers the nüvi 855, which offers speech recognition and lane assist with junction view capabilities but without MSN Direct services or Bluetooth wireless technology. All other features are comparable to the nüvi 885T.
