StreetPilots Know Route from Wrong

Luxury Electronics: As long as the road is in North America, getting lost while driving will not happen if there is a StreetPilot in the vehicle. This GPS-satellite-navigational system, which is no larger than a baseball, is guaranteed to always pitch straight info to drivers. Plus it can easily be removed from one vehicle and placed in another, as it securely attaches to windshields with a suction cup. It is a perfect gift for the soon-to-be rich student, or an ideal addition to the classic car of a bygone era.

The StreetPilot i5 comes equipped with detailed maps of North America, which includes Canada, U.S., Puerto Rico and Mexico. The little dynamo features 3-D map graphics and turn-by-turn vocal directions. And if a turn is missed, a voice prompt from the unit's built-in speaker puts the driver back on course.

Garmin, which is the maker of the StreetPilot, makes the deal even sweeter by offering points-of-interest (POI) downloadable software. Info such as gas stations, hotels, restaurants, ATMs, and speed-limit warnings are available throughout the continent. Two AA batteries or a 12-volt adapter power the unit.

The StreetPilot i5 is an out-of-the-box-ready GPS-satellite-navigational system with zero fuss or muss.
