Available up to 4 times a year, owners can log onto the Garmin website and update their device firmware via USB connectivity. This process also keeps track of over 8 million points of interest (POIs) that may be encountered along a given travel route, including gas stations, restaurants and entertainment locations. Turn-by-turn directions are displayed on the Nuvi's 5-inch touchscreen LCD display, which offers quick configuration of destination addresses and intuitive control of detouring and re-routing on the fly. The Junction View and Lane Assist functions help to increase navigational accuracy when nearing a capital city or other major metropolitan area, providing users with a simulated 3D view of their surrounds complete with off-ramps and exit signs. Under the instruction of virtual areas and spoken-word commands, drivers can complete lane changes in confidence with minimal confusion.
