Garmin nuvi 2400 series comes with wide screen
By Germain Malenfant
Similar to the dezl series designed for truckers,the display has been expanded to a nice 5 inches, Garmin announced the new 2400 series at CES in Las Vegas. It includes several models:
nüvi ® 2450
nüvi ® 2460LT
nüvi ® 2450LM
nüvi ® 2460LMT
These wide screen gps replaces the 1400 series (1450/1490t). This series offers the same features provided by the nüvi 2300 series previously discussed in another article.
The dimensions of the GPS are 5.4 "W x 3.3" H x .6 "D (13.7 x 8.3 x 1.5 cm)
combining a 5.0 inch screen with 480 x 272 pixels
They are compatible with myTrends and trafficTrends (calculating the best route based on statistics from other drivers). This compares to the technology of tomtom IQRoutes.
Here's some specs
Like models in xx00 series and xx50 series, the nuvi 2450/2450LM are not compatible with Bluetooth technology for hands-free calling. Model nuvi 2450LM can be map updated for free. 2460LT and 2460LMT models have a traffic receiver. The model 2460 LMT can be updated without charge.
You can see the ratings given on points of interest from other users. So you can find the best places even if you are not from the area. Of course, you can also vote: connect your GPS to the computer and go to your account to upload your rate to your myGarmin account.
You can also select the icons you use often to be visible in the main screen.
With this series, Garmin makes many people happy with the big wide screen and the voting system (for the best roads and the best points of interest, you have to vote!)
