Global Positioning System for Your Bike?
 
06/11/2001
Global Positioning System for Your Bike?Garmin International has introduced the newest member of its GPS Personal Navigator family -- the GPS V. It incorporates the same user-friendly design, functionality, portability and unique two-way display as the GPS III Plus, yet the GPS V adds longer battery life, higher screen resolution, WAAS capabilities for better accuracy, 19 megabytes of internal memory, and turn-by-turn navigation capabilities for drivers.

The GPS V fits nicely on the dash of any vehicle, can be mounted on a bicycle or ATV, or can easily be used as a handheld GPS utilizing its unique vertical or horizontal screen orientation. And because it provides turn-by- turn navigation, it audibly alerts users when they are approaching upcoming turns or their final destination, removing almost all the guesswork of traveling in an unfamiliar locale.

As a memory-rich device, the GPS V stores street-level maps from the new MapSource MetroGuide U.S.A. CD-ROM with automatic route generation. The increased memory allows users to look up addresses and points of interests using its dedicated "find" button.

The GPS V is expected to be available in the third quarter of 2001 at a suggested retail price of $535.70. It will ship standard with a routable MapSource MetroGuide U.S.A. CD, PC interface cable, power cable, automotive mount, adhesive mount, lanyard, owner's manual and quick-start guide.
