Garmin makes navigation devices for cars, trucks, motorcycles, and even aircraft. The company has unveiled a new motorcycle navigation unit called the z mo 220. The device has a rugged touch screen that has text to speech, lane assist, Bluetooth headset capability, and on/off road travel options.
The touchscreen is a 3.5-inch unit that displays speed limits for most major roads. The device has spoken turn-by-turn directions and speaks most street names aloud. The 220 is waterproof, fuel proof, and glove friendly.
The GPS device uses Garmin's HotFix feature that calculates and stores satellite information to prevent the info from being lost if a signal from the satellite is blocked. The device is set to launch in March 2010 for $599.99 with a motorcycle and a car mount.
