Garmin GPS: Garmin Talking StreetPilot 2610 Vehicle GPS Receiver (12 Channel, Map Compatible) Product Description
Newly simplified for automotive applications, Garmin's portable StreetPilot 2610 features both a touch screen and an alphanumeric remote control so you'll always have easy access to automatic route calculations, helpful turn-by-turn directions, and guiding voice prompts. The 2610 offers a color display, built-in maps, and everything needed to download additional map detail. The StreetPilot offers more precise location finding due to having the WAAS technology, a feature the Garmin Street Pilot did not have.
All the travel information you need, right on your dash.
With its built-in photo sensor, the StreetPilot's bright display automatically adjusts to outside light conditions. The unit is powered through either its external speaker (which comes with a handy 12/24-volt adapter cable) or its dedicated AC power adapter; both are supplied.
The unit's built-in routable basemap covers North and South America and contains a wealth of practical and nuanced data,including: state and country boundaries, lakes, rivers, streams, airports, cities, towns, coastlines, state and interstate highways, local thoroughfares, and secondary roads within metro areas, as well as federal interstate highway exit information for services such as food, lodging, and truck, RV, and automotive service stations.
The 2610 accepts downloadable map detail from Garmin's PC-based MapSource City Navigator CD-ROM (included), which provides street-level detail, addresses, listings of nearest restaurants, hotels, ATMs, and other items. (This feature requires a CompactFlash card, and a 128 MB CF card is included; you must first downloaded MapSource data in order to find points of interest and addresses.)

The StreetPilot's integrated dash-mounting system fosters easy adjustment and quick release. The unit comes with a built-in patch antenna and an MCX-type connector for connection to an optional external GPS antenna.
Garmin makes accessories to help you integrate your GPS with your life and your priorities. Keep your GPS at the ready while protecting it from knocks and bumps is with a carrying case, that has space for your hookup cable and remote control. In the car, you'll appreciate the mounting options and clear reception afforded by the Garmin Magnetic or Suction Mount Antenna that will give you better satellite reception than if you only place your GPS on the dashboard. Using your GPS in more than one vehicle? The Garmin Dashmount is just the ticket, providing one temporary and one permanent adhesive mounting disc so you can move the unit back and forth between your cars.
