Get Turn-by-Turn Directions
nüvi 1260T's intuitive interface greets you with two simple questions: "Where To?" and "View Map." Touch the color screen to easily look up addresses and services and get voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions that speak street names to your destination. It comes preloaded with detailed City Navigator® NT street maps, nearly 6 million points of interest (POIs), 2-D or 3-D maps and the speed limit for most major roads. Its digital elevation maps show you shaded contours at higher zoom levels, giving you a big picture of the surrounding terrain. With the 1260T's enhanced user interface, you can slide your finger to conveniently scroll between screens. You can also upload custom points of interest (POIs). And with HotFix™ satellite prediction, nüvi calculates your position faster to get you there quicker.

Great product I've used Tom Tom and I like the Garmin Better

Just like the bigger version this small garmin gps packs a punch. Initial startup took about 20 minutes more or less maybe because I was indoors. After the setup the gps runs smoothly without any hang ups. I had to update the maps and the system also. You need an optional memory card if you want to load the entire US and Canada map. This is perfect for everyday use around the town.
