Navigate down Easy Street and avoid the jams with the Nuvi 2699 LMT-D, which offers the best of Garmin's traffic solutions. Digital Traffic is fast and free. It pops up next to your maps when it receives an alert and can even tell you, verbally, about any updates on traffic, if there are any routes around the traffic, or even if you are on the fastest route available.
You've got a friend in Nuvi! This Garmin Nuvi uses Garmin Real Directions, which redefines "spoken turn-by-turn directions". The Nuvi will give you directions in the way that a friend would, by referring to recognisable landmarks and traffic lights. There is no need to slow down to a snail's pace, backing up traffic while you scan every road corner for a road name that you miss because it is covered in ivy! Instead, you will be told things like, "Turn right after the petrol station".
Ease of navigation. The Direct Access feature makes selecting complex destinations simple. Destinations inside Airports or shopping centres, for example, it can find a place within a larger place, this shop is inside, on the upper level. Outside, on the road, things can be just as easily simplified with the Active Lane Guidance and photoReal Junction Views. Active Lane Guidance uses voice prompts and brightly coloured, animated views of the junction you are approaching, with arrows showing you exactly which lane you need to be in, which eliminates the risk of performing dangerous last-minute manoeuvres. The photoReal Junction view displays junction in a realistic way, including the surrounding areas and road signs so there is no mistaking where you are.
Compatibility and synchronisation. With the use of Bluetooth technology, you can link your smartphone directly to your Nuvi and use the built-in speaker and microphone to make and receive hands-free calls while your phone never leaves your pocket. Speaking of hands-free, and speaking of speaking, you can speak to your Nuvi and it intelligently responds with directions and information. Smartphone Link means that you can use your smartphone's existing data plan to share information such as destinations and even where you have parked. It also offers access to Garmin Live Services, so you receive helpful information like weather reports. Smartphone Link works with iPhone 4S and some Android devices.
