Simply speaking, n?vi 850 is one advanced navigator. It features speech recognition (SR), a widescreen display, preloaded maps, an FM transmitter and more. Like the rest of the wide n?vi 800-series, just speak a menu option and n?vi obeys your command.

Speak Commands

n?vi 850 not only tells you where to turn but listens to your spoken commands. With n?vi?s innovative speech recognition, you safely control n?vi?s interface with your voice allowing you to keep both hands on the wheel. Simply press the button on the remote (which attaches to the steering wheel) to activate speech recognition and begin speaking menu options. n?vi even recognizes shortcut phrases for popular functions. Tell n?vi "Find Address" and speak an address to start navigating.

See More

With n?vi 850's widescreen display, you'll always get the big picture. View map detail, driving directions, photos and more in bright, brilliant color. Its sunlight-readable, 4.3-inch display is easy to read from any direction.

Navigate With Ease

n?vi 850 comes ready to go right out of the box with preloaded City Navigator NT street maps and millions of points of interest (POIs) such as hotels, restaurants, fuel stations, ATMs and more. Speak a menu option or touch the color screen to enter a destination, and n?vi takes you there with 2D or 3D maps and turn-by-turn voice directions. It even announces the name of exits and streets so you never have to take your eyes off the road. In addition, n?vi 850 accepts custom points of interest, such as school zones and safety cameras and lets you set proximity alerts to warn you of upcoming POIs.

Where am I?

Keep track of yourself and your car with n?vi 850. Just speak or tap "Where Am I?" to find the closest hospitals, police stations, fuel stations, nearest address and intersection. Also see your exact latitude and longitude coordinates. n?vi 850 even remembers where you parked. It automatically marks your position when you remove it from the windshield mount, so you can navigate with n?vi on foot and find your way back to your vehicle. Perfect for unfamiliar spots and crowded lots such as amusement parks, stadiums and malls.

Plan Ahead

n?vi 850 includes advanced navigational features to take the worry out of traveling. With route planning you can save 10 routes, specify via points and preview simulated turns on the 850's wide screen. In addition, n?vi 850 automatically sorts multiple destinations to provide an efficient route for errands, deliveries or sales calls. It also displays speed limits for highways and Interstates. A trip log provides an electronic bread crumb trail of up to 10,000 points, so you can see where you've been on the map.

Take It With You

n?vi 850's high-sensitivity internal (non flip-up) antenna gives it a sleeker, thinner design than the n?vi 600-series, making it easy to slip in your pocket or purse. Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery makes it convenient for navigation by car or on foot.

Go Beyond Navigation

Navigation is just the beginning. n?vi 850 includes many must have entertainment and travel tools including MP3 player, audio book player (subscription to required), JPEG picture viewer, currency converters, games, alarm clock and more. With the included wireless FM transmitter?, you can hear audio, including voice prompts, MP3s and audio books, through your vehicle's stereo. It's also compatible with optional FM traffic alerts or optional MSN? Direct content. The 750 features Garmin Lock, an anti-theft feature, and configurable vehicle icons that let you select car-shaped graphics to show your location on the map. Optional plug-in microSD cards let you add additional features to enhance your travel experience including language translation and detailed travel guides. Our SaversGuide? provides information on nearby merchants offering discounts to customize your n?vi whether you?re traveling or close to home.

n?vi 850: At your command.

Comments about Garmin Garmin nuvi 850 Street GPS System with Speak Recognition and FM Transmitter:

This wonderful product makes up for the lack of properly engineerd signage on the highways.

Much less stress on a trip.

I prefer to listen to it directly than on the FM.

This is one of the great things of the 21st Century.
