nüvi 3540LT is part of Garmin’s flagship collection of premium navigators. With stunning ultra-sleek design and dazzling 5-inch display and our new lightning-fast Guidance 3 navigation engine, nüvi 3540LT is swift to operate, quick to calculate and reliable to navigate. Other premium Garmin features inside include 3D traffic, lifetime traffic, and maps that cover Western Europe and our unique Cyclops speed cameras.
Powered by Guidance 3
The Guidance 3 premium navigation engine offers significant benefits including notably faster route calculations so you can get going much quicker. It provides a faster, more intuitive user interface as well as more accurate searches.
It also includes Garmin’s innovative Bird’s Eye junction view which gives an overhead perspective of the correct lane to be in when approaching complex junctions. This is particularly useful in areas that require multiple manoeuvres.
Other useful features include Automatic Orientation whereby nüvi will adjust the display depending on whether it is in portrait or landscape position and the ability to ‘pinch and zoom’. Guidance 3 also offers 3D terrain, buildings and landmarks to show a realistic image of the road ahead.
Avoid traffic tie-ups
To keep drivers moving, the nüvi 3540LT includes subscription-free 3D traffic for the lifetime of the product. 1
Delivered via traditional RDS-TMC, the service combines trafficTrends™ historic route data together with information on the current traffic situation to identify congestion and incidents on your planned journey. An astonishing 80 million sources are used to understand what’s happening on the roads, with comprehensive coverage of motorways and A roads across the UK and Europe. If there are queues, you’ll be offered an alternative route to avoid any delay.
1 FREE lifetime traffic updates may not be transferred to another person or another Garmin product. Lifetime traffic extends for the useful life of your Garmin traffic receiver (as long as you own a compatible Garmin GPS) or as long as Garmin receives traffic data from its traffic supplier, whichever is shorter. Traffic content not available for all areas.
Know the lane before it’s too late
Avoid confusion at tricky exits and junctions. nüvi 3540LT’s Lane Assist with PhotoReal Junction View shows the lane you need to be in at upcoming major junctions and exits with incredible detail of your surroundings right down to the trees, bridges and pylons. From a mile before the junction, the sat nav enters split screen mode to show your position on the map alongside a realistic depiction of your upcoming manoeuvre, with accurately reproduced road signs for confident navigation and reassurance you’re on track.
Keep an eye on the latest speed cameras
Garmin nüvi sat navs contain our unique Cyclops speed camera system, for real-time, direction-relevant and accurate alerts. Get overspeed warning and speed limit information as you approach one of hundreds of fixed, mobile, variable limit and temporary speed cameras. New or moved cameras are constantly tracked and Cyclops checks and updates its central database daily.
Find fuel-efficient routes
Garmin’s ecoRoute fuel-saver technology finds the most fuel-efficient route to a destination, helping drivers save money while being kinder on the environment. The innovative feature tracks fuel usage and calculates the cost of a journey as well as enabling accurate expense reporting.
Smart mount system
nüvi 3540LT is even more convenient to use. It has a “smart” mount, to provide a constant power source and it automatically powers on and off with the vehicle engine. An extra speaker in the mount provides a volume boost if you need it. When the sat nav is removed from the mount, nüvi automatically marks your parked position and it finds the nearest parking to your location for the ultimate convenience.
