GVN 52 integrates with your vehicle's audio/video entertainment system so you can view detailed street maps on your system's integrated video display and hear turn-by-turn directions through your vehicle's stereo.
Navigate with Your Audio/Video System
GVN 52 turns your vehicle's audio/video system into a powerful street navigator. Look up and route directly to specific addresses or points of interest — such as restaurants, hotels, gas stations, retail shops or ATMs — while viewing your exact location on detailed street maps. It even announces the name of exits and streets through your car's speakers so you never have to take your eyes off the road. Map graphics are shown on your system's integrated video display. GVN 52 comes preloaded with detailed City Navigator® NT map data for all of North America or Western Europe.

The GVN 52 is operated by the included RF remote control. When the GVN 52 is connected to a touch screen display, the included RF remote control is still required for unit operation. Touching the display screen will not operate the features of the GVN 52.
Display quality will vary depending on the screen being used. For best results and to ensure customer satisfaction, Garmin recommends testing GVN 52 with a specific display model before installing.
