Garmin nuvi Portable Automotive GPS Systems

What is a nuvi? A Garmin nuvi is a top-of-the-line portable automotive GPS system on sale at Tiger GPS. There are now many lines of nuvi, ranging from basic (200, 1200 & 1300 series), to full-featured wide-screen (700 series), to new full-featured wide-screen with voice recognition (800 series), plus large-screen (465T & 5000 models) and multifunction (500 series). No matter your needs, there's a Garmin nuvi at Tiger GPS that's perfect for you. You can see the main differences between the primary lines here:

The nuvi 1200 and nuvi 1300 series are the newest entries to basic GPS navigation. They are significantly smaller and thinner than other models and designed for easy portability whether in a vehicle or on foot. The higher-end nuvi 705 and nuvi 805 series are still sleek and compact units, of course; they also add high-end features such as multiple-point routing and multi-route storage, multimedia options, Lane Assist with Junction View, 3D buildings (on some models), more advanced Bluetooth connectivity, and more robust processors to handle all the data.

The Garmin nuvi 805 series models are now shipping. These units are the first to feature total voice command and control, rendering the touch-screen practically unnecessary! The nuvi 855 and nuvi 885T have pre-loaded maps of the United States and Canada, text-to-speech voice directions, an MP3 player, FM transmitter, multiple point routing, lane assist, and an extra-wide 4.3" diagonal screen. The nuvi 855 is the base model, and the nuvi 885T adds Bluetooth for hands-free calls and includes the MSN Direct receiver.

All Garmin nuvi 705 series models have pre-loaded maps of the United States and Canada, text-to-speech voice directions, an MP3 player, FM transmitter, multiple point routing, lane assist, and an extra-wide 4.3" diagonal screen. The differences within the 800 & 700 series are as follows:

The nuvi 1200 and nuvi 1300 series are new, ultra-thin and light navigators. They all feature text-to-speech voice directions, and are compatible with new software for pedestrian mode - now you can drive to your location, get out of the car, and actually find a walking route and public transportation! As a value-level option, they lack the advanced routing and multimedia features of the 705 and 805 series. The differences between the 1200/1300 models can be found below:

All Garmin nuvi 200 series models have pre-loaded maps of at least the continental United States and provide basic voice prompts. A "W" at the end of the number indicates a wide-screen version; the nuvi 255 and up add text-to-speech to the line. The new nuvi 205 models upgrade the nuvi 200 models with the ability to add live traffic, plus other connectivity enhancements.

There are even more nuvis out there. If you need a bigger screen, try the nuvi 1490T (click here); it's identical in features to the 1390T but adds multiple-point routing, multiple-route storage, and a giant 5" diagonal screen. If you're a trucker, there's nothing better than the nuvi 465T (click here) - with a large 4.8" diagonal screen, the 465T is the first nuvi with built-in truck data, letting you plan your journey around weight restrictions, low overpasses, and commercial road. There's also the nuvi 5000 (click here), with the largest screen - 5.2" diagonal - and multimedia feature. The nuvi 5000 is a great option for motor homes and other large vehicle drivers.
