nüvi 860 not only tells you where to turn but listens to your voice commands. With nüvi's innovative speech recognition, you safely control the GPS device with your voice - while keeping both hands on the wheel. Simply press the button on the remote that you attach to your steering wheel to activate speech recognition and begin speaking menu options.
The Garmin nüvi 860 is preloaded with the latest Mapsource® City Navigator NT 2008 street-level maps for Ireland, the UK and Europe. Based on Q2, 2007 Navteq map data, there is street-level detail for every town and village in the country. Specifically for Ireland, there is a much more extensive POI database, updated road details including new by-passes and motorway extensions and a number of corrections including road-naming that makes this release the most comprehensive to date.
The Garmin nüvi 860 like the nüvi 760 allows you to enter multiple destinations or stop-overs on your journey and it will automatically sort these to provide you with an efficient route. You can also plan and save up to 10 routes. This means that you can do all your route planning before heading off on your journey which is invaluable when doing deliveries or sales calls or even planning your next holiday. Other features include automatic re-routing, clear text-to-speech voice prompts (i.e. speaks street names e.g. 'Turn left onto Blackthorn road in 50 metres'), 2D and 3D map perspective, a 4.3" diagonal touchscreen, an extensive points of interest database with the ability to add your own POI files.
Similar to the popular features of the nüvi 760, the nüvi 860 has Bluetooth® wireless capability which means that the GPS can act as a mobile phone hands-free in your car or hire car. You can also use the nüvi 860 to send and receive SMS text messages.
