45969 Screen Shot 2012-07-12 at 9.14.06 AMYears ago (more than I'd care to admit), I spent a month in London for grad school. While I loved navigating the city on my own and discovering new areas, I can't imagine how much time I would have saved and the fun that I had found if I'd had access to Garmin cityXplorer London pedestrian maps during my stay. So I was excited to see our new mapping update for London roll out just in time for travelers to catch some world-class sport the next few weeks!

The maps designed for your Garmin nuvi will enable you to navigate the big city during the busiest time London has seen for many years, helping you feel like a local in an otherwise unfamiliar city. The enhanced pedestrian navigation gives you directions that let you walk or use public transport to get you where you need to go, estimated times of arrival and key locations such as parking, restaurants, hotels, fan zones and sporting venues.

177334The 2012 cityXplorer London puts the latest facilities at your fingertips – plus thousands of new points of interest (POI’s), new landmarks, bus routes, walkways and hundreds of POI’s covering sporting events in the city. You can use the maps in the car, on foot or on public transport.

And don't fret if you're traveling to London but only have mapping for the US or a single European country on your nuvi. Simply upload cityXplorer London and enjoy finding your way around all the great locations London has to offer. Another great aspect of cityXplorer London is that there is no need for a GPS signal for the map to work: you can preview your city tour from the comfort of your hotel room, or even while on the underground metro, before setting out on foot.

Safe travels and have fun!!
