Garmin launches nüvi® 1200 and 1300 series


The nüvi 1200 and 1300 series are the first nüvi devices to offer pedestrian navigation capability enabled through optional CityXplorerTM maps, which are available for select tourist destinations in both North America and Europe, and can easily be downloaded directly to the nüvi.

CityXplorer allows the user to plan routes that can include public transit options such as bus, tramway, metro and suburban rail systems.

These devices come standard with ecoRouteTM, which suggests fuel-efficient navigation.

The nüvi 1300 is available with coverage of the lower 48 states, Hawaii and Puerto Rico, while the nüvi 1350 is available with preloaded comprehensive coverage of North America.

The nüvi 1370T comes standard with mapping for North America and Europe.

All these new devices feature text-to-speech technology, and various models also provide features like free lifetime traffic alerts and lane assist.

All models are expected to be available in the second quarter of 2009.
