Navigate With Ease

Some versions even include a preloaded safety camera database.

Make Hands-free Calls

Talk about worry-free driving. nüvi 610 integrates Bluetooth® wireless technology with a built-in microphone and speaker, so you can pair it with your compatible Bluetooth phone. Then talk hands-free through the 610 while staying focused on the road. Simply dial numbers with nüvi's touch screen keypad to make a call. To answer calls, just tap nüvi's screen and speak directly into its built-in microphone. You can also easily look up and dial numbers from your personalized phone book or from your phone’s call history log. With 1-touch dialing for POIs, you can conveniently call ahead for reservations or information.

Add Traffic Alerts

Avoid traffic jams with the addition of an FM TMC traffic receiver and traffic services. By adding these 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. Select nüvi 610 models also include an integrated traffic receiver and services (click versions tab to view all).
