Garmin gets truckin’ with new GPS device

Posted in Garmin by Shane McGlaun on March 19th, 2009

garmin465t-sbI really like GPS devices and have owned several of them over the years. GPS is much better than having to stop and ask directions or having to listen to the wife tell me I need to stop and ask directions. I always figured that the big rigs on the road had built-in GPS, and I am sure many do.

Garmin has announced a new GPS device for long haul truckers that may make some want to upgrade even if their rig has GPS built-in. The new nuvi 465T is a GPS device that allows truckers to put in the length, width, height, and weight of their truck along with cargo type and the GPS device will find routes that the truck can safely and legally take.

Garmin FR Fitness Watch Tracks Your Workout

Posted in Garmin by Shane McGlaun on January 30th, 2009

Garmin FR Watch
Watches today do more than watches could do in the past. I have seen watches that have cell phones built-in and watches that connect to the Internet. Garmin is a brand closely associated with GPS devices, but the company has a wider range of products and has introduced a new watch.

It would be easy to assume that the new watch offers GPS capability, but it doesn’t. The watch monitors data from your workouts and saves it for wireless transmission to your computer for analysis. The watch is compatible with any ANT+ fitness device like heart rate monitors, foot pods, or home and gym equipment.

Garmin Edge 705T Cycling ComputerI used to ride a bike frequently, when I was like 12 and couldn’t drive. Since then I try and not get out in the Texas heat on a bicycle with moronic rednecks flying by seeing how close to you they can get with their giant cow trailer pulling mirrors. I do know several people who like cycling though.

For those of you who are really into cycling Garmin has announced that its Team Garmin Edition Edge 705 is now available. The cycling computer comes in orange representing the uniform color of the Garmin-Chipotle cycling team.

Garmin & Kenwood in-dash electronics partnership continues

Posted in Garmin by Shane McGlaun on March 24th, 2008

Kenwood In-dash Powered by GarminIt really sucks when you get lost and it’s even worse if you happen to have a wife or significant other in the car at the time to tell you that you should have stopped for directions. The easy way to avoid this is to get a navigation unit, but for some the thought of cluttering up their car with a navigation unit is unbearable. Kenwood’s new products that feature built-in navigation in-dash may be just the ticket.

Garmin and Kenwood announced today that they were extending their relationship. Gamin will be the exclusive navigation supplier for Kenwood’s new 2008 line of in-dash automotive electronics. Garmin and Kenwood also say that they will work together on advertising for the new Kenwood products featuring Garmin navigation.

Garmin 405 Forerunner GPS watch tracks routes while running and uploads to your computer without wiresGarmin has a new exercise gadget debuting at CES this year called the Forerunner 405, designed for runners to aid in training and track routes. The new 405 is also a little more stylish than previous models with similar functionality, keeping the size to a minimum so the gadget doesn’t look like such a gaudy chunk of electronics on your wrist.

The Forerunner 405 is GPS enabled and allows outdoor runners to keep track of their speed, distance, heart rate and location through the watch. This model also features a cool new bezel around the display that lets users navigate and change settings on the watch by simply tapping it and sliding their finger around the metal circle.

Big screen GPS with the Garmin nuvi 5000

Posted in CES 2008,Garmin,GPS by Darrin Olson on January 4th, 2008

Garmin nuvi 5000 offers larger screen for big usesSure it’s nice to be able to get the same functionality of your electronic gadgets into a smaller package, but smaller isn’t always better for everything. Having a pocket-sized GPS mounted to your dash can sometimes be like an eye chart test for finding destinations and points of interesting while driving your vehicle in traffic. Due to this Garmin is debuting a larger line of GPS units with a big 5.2-inch touch screen, and is packing it with features.

The big screen makes viewing and interacting with the touchscreen easier at arms length, and since they had the extra room they threw in quite a few extra tools. For starters you still get the voice-prompted turn-by-turn directions, but it will also save up to 10 routes, keep track of where you have been, find points of interest as well as school zones and safety cams, shows terrain info and you can even have a little vehicle icon instead of the generic arrow representing your car. A couple of other pretty nifty features include an external video input which lets you have video connected to the GPS, such as a back-up camera on your big rig and an FM transmitter so you can listen to the MP3′s loaded on the device through the car’s FM stereo, not to mention the loaded games and audio books owners can take advantage of.

nuvi 260 GPS by Garmin speaks actual street names

Posted in Garmin,GPS by Chetz on August 6th, 2007

nuvi 260 GPS released by GarminGarmin has released the nuvi 260 as another addition to their 200 series lineup and an upgrade from the nuvi 250 released a couple months ago. The major addition to the pocket-size 260 model is that it will actually speak the upcoming street names instead of just providing an upcoming distance.

Many GPS devices, including Garmin’s, give audible turn-by-turn directions but will announce a turn coming with a right or left direction in a specified distance. The nuvi 260 will not only give you the upcoming turn but will also give you the street name that you will be turning on, and I’m sure pronunciations may vary. According to Garmin this feature will make the turn-by-turn directional navigation even easier to use since users can focus more on the road and less at trying to see the street names on the device.

Garmin RINO 530HCx GPS and two-way radio

Posted in Garmin,GPS,Two-way Radios by Chetz on May 11th, 2007

Garmin RINO 530HCx two way radio and GPSThese Garmin RINO GPS handhelds are really some pretty cool gadgets. Not only is the RINO 530HCx a powerful GPS device, but it also acts as a two way radio.

You really need two of these devices to take full advantage of all the features, and with two of them the parties can communicate up to 14 miles away and see not only their own position but the position of others you know also who are also using a RINO product. This communication combined with locating is a great feature for safety on hunting trips, skiing outings or really any outdoor activities or jobs where you might be temporarily separated.

The RINO 530HCx model also has a seven channel weather receiver with the ability to catch weather alerts, and has a built-in compass and barometer (altimeter). A microSD card slot loads …
