Garmin International has announced that nuMaps Guarantee is now available. This program allows a customer who purchases a new nuvi or zumo GPS device to update the unit map free of charge if both of the following conditions exist:
1. The customer registers the new unit here within 60 days of the unit's first use.
2. A newer map becomes available within 60 days after the unit has been activated.
The nuvi 5000 GPS navigator and personal travel assistant is designed specifically for those seeking premium navigation features on a large, 5.2-inch display. With its large, touchscreen interface, nuvi 5000 makes it easier than ever to obtain voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions, route calculation, and automatic rerouting if a motorist strays off course. Route planning is a cinch as the nuvi 5000 will save 10 routes, specify via points and preview simulated turns on the big screen. Additionally, it automatically sorts multiple destinations providing the driver with the most direct and efficient route for errands, deliveries or sales calls. Drivers who want to keep track of where they have been can turn on the track log feature and see an electronic breadcrumb trail that shows their previously traveled route on the display. If a driver wants to avoid an area, nuvi's routing can be customized by choosing to avoid select roads and areas.
The nuvi 5000 comes preloaded with highly detailed City Navigator NT road maps for the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. The preloaded map data features over six million points of interest, including hotels, restaurants, gas stations, ATMs and attractions. The map data is provided by NAVTEQ, a world leader in premium-quality mapping.
