From the Manufacturer
The GPS V is one versatile navigator that delivers automatic routing, detailed mapping and WAAS capability - all in a compact handheld GPS. It comes with the MapSource City Select CD, which gives you access to detailed street-level maps with locations of restaurants, hotels and other services. Use the GPS V to look up a location and it will automatically calculate a route and guide you to your destination with turn-by-turn directions and audible beeps that alert you to upcoming turns. You can even switch the display from horizontal, for mounting on a bike or a vehicle dash, to vertical for handheld use.
The GPS V offers true turn-by-turn navigation through the use of its auto-routing feature. At the touch of a button, you now have access to the shortest and fastest routes, turn directions, and estimated time of arrival at your intended destination. Along the way, GPS V on-screen prompts alert you to necessary turns, distance to upcoming turns, route deviation, and distance to the final destination.
The GPS V is compact and portable. The unit can be dash-mounted, and operates on four AA batteries or on your vehicle's battery using the included 12-volt power adapter. The GPS V can be easily viewed in any lighting condition, due to its high resolution, four gray-level display and backlit display/keypad. The unit's built-in basemap provides detail for interstates, interstate exit data, highways, rivers and lakes in the United States, Canada and Mexico (no exit data for Mexico), plus major thoroughfares in metropolitan areas.
With the press of a button, the built-in basemap will provide turn-by-turn guidance to a destination via interstates and highways. With downloaded maps from the MapSouce City Select CD-ROM, your GPS V provides turn-by-turn guidance down to the residential street-level detail.
