nüvi® 300

Part Number: 010-00455-01


Garmin's nüvi 300 is a portable GPS navigator, traveler's reference and digital entertainment system, all in one. It is your pocket-sized personal travel assistant ready for adventure. The nüvi 300 comes with detailed street-level mapping for a specific region or country of Europe.

Navigate With Ease

nüvi 300 comes preloaded with City Navigator® NT map data for one European region or country (click versions tab to view all). Simply touch the colour screen to enter a destination, and nüvi takes you there with 2D or 3D maps and turn-by-turn voice directions.

In addition, nüvi 300 accepts custom points of interest (POIs) such as school zones and safety cameras and lets you set proximity alerts to warn you of upcoming POIs. Some versions even include a preloaded safety camera database (excludes Germany, Austria and Switzerland). New regions are continually being added as data becomes available. See http://my.garmin.com for coverage information.

Avoid Traffic Jams and Congestion

Monitor traffic congestion with the addition of an optional FM TMC traffic receiver. By adding traffic services and a receiver to your nüvi, you are notified of accidents or road construction ahead on your route. Simply touch the screen to view traffic details or recalculate your route to avoid traffic.

Take It With You

Like the rest of the nüvi series, nüvi 300 sports a sleek, slim design and fits comfortably in your pocket or purse. Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery makes it convenient for navigation by car or foot.

Go Beyond Navigation

Navigation is just the beginning. nüvi 300 includes many "must have" entertainment and travel tools including MP3 player, audio book player (subscription to Audible.com required), JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock with time zones, currency converter, measurement converter, calculator and more. It also comes with 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 software on plug-and-play SD cards for language translation and detailed travel guides allow you to customise nüvi for your travel needs.
