Garmin iQue M3 Pocket PC Integrated with GPS



Garmin iQue M3 Pocket PC GPS Description:
The iQue M3 features Microsoft's Windows Mobile 2003 Professional Edition software package, Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition, which supports portrait/landscape screen orientation for easy viewing of multimedia content.

Incorporating Garmim's proven, easy-to-use c-series automotive navigation software, the iQue M3 provides premium in-car navigation capability with automatic route calculation to any destination. The intuitive, point-screen interface requires little input from the user.

Users can easily see where they are on an electronic map, and look up an address or point of interest and route to it. An integrated speaker gives voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions to your destination. Users are also able to choose between a three-dimensional navigation view or the more traditional 2D overhead view.

The 3D-navigation perspective lets drivers see an uncluttered view of what's down the road. A built-in basemap of North and South America shows major highways, thoroughfares, railways, lakes, rivers and borders.

Garmin includes its MapSource City Select DVD as a standard accessory, so users can download detailed street-level map data, look up nearly six million points of interest (POIs), and navigate to addresses throughout the U.S. and Canada.

World travelers can also add a European or Pacific Rim basemap from the installation CD and purchase detailed maps separately. The GPS antenna on the iQue M3 folds flush with the back of the unit.

To navigate, simply raise the antenna to enable Garmin's patented antenna-release switch that simultaneously powers up the device, initiates the satellite-acquisition sequence, and defaults to the QueMapTM interface. Once the antenna switch is triggered, the device prepares to navigate. The antenna can also be adjusted for optimal GPS signal reception.
