Garmin nuvi 260

Garmin on Monday morning introduced the nuvi 260, a new improvement on its popular earlier nuvi 250 that adds voice ID for street names. Instead of calling out the distance to the next turn or stop, the GPS unit can intelligently add the actual street to the directions. This helps drivers focus on looking ahead to the next turn instead of distracting themselves with double-checking the turn on the 3.5-inch touchscreen, according to Garmin.

The updated nuvi maintains an extra-large database of Canadian and US maps with 6 million points of interest, and shares the same secondary features as most of the other nuvi 200-series models such as the photo viewer and world clock. Garmin ships the 260 later this month bundled with a car mounting kit for $500.
