For inspiration on what to get your family and friends this Christmas, look no further than Garmin, the global leader in satellite navigation*. There’s something for everyone and we’re sure someone you know will want one!
FOR THE DRIVER – The multi award winning Garmin nüvi 3700 sat nav
The nüvi 3700 is style personified. At just 8.7mm it’s the thinnest sat nav around and has a dual touch capacitive screen with “Pinch” ability.
The nüvi 3790T takes personalisation seriously. It is voice-activated and you can even give it your voice or that of a loved one by downloading Garmin’s Voice Studio, at www.garmin.com/uk/extras/customise-your-sat-nav/
The innovative nüRoutesTM myTrends™ feature analyses your driving behaviour and predicts where you are likely to go and then links to the trafficTrends™ application, which looks at what other people are doing using tools such as historical traffic information and period of day.
The all new PhotoRealTM Junction View shows you exactly what’s coming up, including junction signs, layout and what lane you should be in, even showing you the trees, bridges and electricity pylons.
FOR THE CYCLIST – The Edge 800
It’s for cyclists who want to know what they’re doing (how far, how fast, ascent/descent), how they’re doing it (heart rate, calories burnt, power output – with additional sensor), and where they’re going (navigating on or off road).
FOR THE RUNNER – Forerunner 210
The Forerunner 210 is ideal for runners who simply want to step outside and start their workout. You get real-time data such as pace, distance and time. But for runners who want more training capabilities, you can create customised interval sessions and heart rate zones, along with alerts to notify you when you are above or below your targets.
It also makes a great everyday watch with a battery life of up to eight hours in GPS/training mode and up to three weeks in power-save mode.
FOR THE SKIIER – Dakota 20 ski edition
If you’ve ever stood at the top of a slope and wondered what combination of runs and lifts would take you back to your chalet or exactly how to find your friends on the other side of the mountain, the Dakota 20 ski edition is for you. With Mountain Dynamics SnowRanger ski resort maps for Europe or North America it not only helps you find your way around, it also tells you how far, how fast and how high you go.
SnowRanger maps give you turn-by-turn directions telling you which lifts and slopes to take to get to your destination. Ticket offices, parking, snow parks, restaurants and ski schools are all marked on the map.
FOR THE GOLFER – Approach G5
The Approach G5 shows golfers the precise distance to the centre of green and other key course features, eliminating the guesswork and making club selection easier – key factors in improving any golfer’s score.
It has a large 3-inch touchscreen and allows the user to track their stats including putts per round, greens and fairways hit in regulation. They can also measure their shots and assign it to a club to obtain an average yardage per club. The Approach even lets golfers preview any of the 1,250 preloaded courses to ensure they are never ill-equipped to meet the challenges of unfamiliar courses.
FOR THE WALKER/GEOCACHER – GPSMAP 62
There’s nothing better than going for a walk on a crisp winter’s day. With the GPSMAP 62 handheld it’s easy to navigate your way on or off the beaten track. Mark ‘waypoints’ or favourite locations on your GPSMAP 62 and you’ll be guided to them. Devise routes on Garmin’s free BaseCamp route planning software www.garmin.com/basecamp, upload them to your GPS62 and let it lead the way.
If geocaching’s your thing the GPSMAP® 62 series even offers paperless geocaching enabling you to quickly download cache information directly to the device. See www.garmin.com/geocaching.
SEE YOUR ACTIVITIES!
After your ride/run/walk you can go to Garmin Connect™ (http://garminconnect.com), the free-to-join online community of more than 30 million activities from around the world. Just sign in and upload your activity to get all the stats you’ll ever want.
