Never Get Lost Again

Garmin nüvi 2575R

Nowadays, there are so many types of GPS available with interesting applications and functions that we find ourselves spoilt for choice.

Singapore may be a small country but I still find myself getting lost on occasions, sending me into waves of frustration and agony. Before the GPS was invented, I used to refer to the street directory but that was actually quite dangerous, having to balance the book on my lap while shifting my eyes between the map and the roads ahead. Nowadays, there are so many types of GPS available with interesting applications and functions that we find ourselves spoilt for choice.  

Here are some of the GPS sets that I have recently tested: 

Garmin nüvi 2575R 

Other than just giving directions, the nüvi 2575R has gone further to become a driving companion. It has an integrated driving recorder for image and voice recording of real-time videos which will help in cases of traffic accidents, as well as with an analogue TV that can receive all our local free-to-air channels and selected Malaysian channels. This provides a source of entertainment for your passengers and the channels are surprisingly clear most of the time. 

Another function of the nüvi 2575R is the ecoRoute™ which is basically a report of your fuel consumption. Details such as fuel type, cost of fuel used and amount of fuel used are part of the report. With rising costs of fuel, this helps drivers to understand their driving habits better and see how they can alter any bad habits to save fuel and save money. While you are driving, tips on how to save fuel are also provided. 

Like your smartphones and androids, you can customise the menu of the nüvi 2575R to display the applications which you want. You can even talk to your GPS with the voice-activated navigation. For instance, say “Go home” to it and it will automatically set up the route for you to get home from wherever you are. Planning routes with the nüvi 2575R can be done according to the fastest time, shortest distance or best fuel economy.
