The 5" nüvi 2440 super-widescreen sat nav is packed with high-end navigation features and preloaded street maps for Western Europe. A multi-point route planner automatically sorts multiple destinations into an efficient route and Lane Assist with PhotoReal Junction View directs you into the right lane.
nüvi 2440's PhotoReal junction view provides a realistic reproduction of road signs and junctions along your route, with stunning landscape detail for exceptional clarity down to the exact trees and pylons! With Lane Assist, there's no more guessing which lane you need to be in at upcoming exits and junctions, with arrows that indicate the proper lane for navigation. So there's no need to panic, hesitate or make last-minute lane changes, even on unfamiliar routes.
It's easy to see where you're going on nüvi 2440's 5-inch (12.7 cm) touchscreen display. View map detail, driving directions, photos and more in bright, brilliant colour. With its big, bold display, you won't miss a thing.
nüvi 2440 includes advanced navigation features to take the worry out of travelling. With route planning you can save 100 routes, specify via points and preview simulated turns on the large screen. In addition, nüvi 2440 automatically sorts multiple destinations to provide an efficient route for errands, deliveries or sales calls. A trip log provides an electronic bread crumb trail of up to 10,000 points, so you can see where you've been on the map.
Garmin's unique Cyclops speed cameras are built in, giving real-time, reliable and accurate alerts, overspeed warning and speed limit information as you approach one of hundreds of fixed, mobile, variable limit and temporary safety cameras. New or moved cameras are constantly tracked and the central database is updated by Cyclops daily. nüvi 2440 also contains speed limits for all major routes plus Garmin's new speed limit reporting, which enables you to manually correct / update speed limit information and share any changes via USB.
nüvi 2440 saves you fuel and money with ecoRoute - Garmin's innovative green feature that calculates the most fuel-efficient route, tracks fuel usage and more. You can choose to take the "less fuel" option as a routing preference and when selected, nüvi will determine if a more fuel efficient route exists based upon road speed data and vehicle acceleration data. ecoRoute helps you develop more efficient driving habits, calculates trip cost and enables accurate expense reporting too.
nüvi 2440 has an intuitive interface that greets you with two simple questions: "Where To?" and "View Map." Touch the super-wide colour screen to easily look up addresses and services and get voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions with spoken street names for extra route awareness with no need to look at the sat nav screen. Garmin's new Trip Planner feature provides a multi-route preview so you can visually compare the available routes before selecting your preferred journey.
The Where am I? emergency locator is a safety feature that can be very helpful if you break down or need a local service urgently. Simply tap the car icon on the map screen to get your exact coordinates, address and junction, contact details for vehicle recovery services and directions to your nearest hospitals, police and petrol stations.
Navigation is just the beginning. nüvi 2440 features many travel tools, including JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock with time zones, currency converter, measurement converter, calculator and more. It helps you remember where you parked by automatically marking your position when it's removed from your vehicle with Park Position Recall.
