Our take on the Garmin nüvi® 2475LT

by Dominic Devito
Garmin

Who needs a portable navigator?

Portable GPS puts you in touch with the world when you're on the road. Tap the restaurant icon, and it asks you what kind of food you're looking for. Type in "Mexican," and you're eating a burrito before you know it. A portable navigator not only gets you to your destination, it can also find museums, theaters, and other spots along the way. Many navigators receive traffic reports, so you can avoid jams. Other cool features range from hands-free calling to 3D graphics and lane guidance. Best of all, you can move a portable easily from car to car, a big plus for multi-car families.

n�Maps

International travel has gotten more sophisticated over the years, but there's still not much worse than getting lost in an area where you don't speak the language. The Garmin nüvi 2475LT portable navigator gives you detailed maps of most of Europe and the U.S., along with most of Canada, Mexico, and several Caribbean islands, making it ideal for transatlantic travel for business and pleasure alike. It also offers Bluetooth® connectivity for hands-free calling with your compatible phone. And its free traffic-information service keeps track of congestion in metropolitan areas, so you'll always find the quickest, most efficient route.

Innovative Garmin Guidance 2.0
Garmin didn't get to be a leader in the navigation industry by resting on their laurels. The nüvi 2475LT incorporates Garmin Guidance 2.0, a feature set that offers convenience for everyday travel. You can find and select businesses right on the map screen without having to go through time-wasting menus. Worried about losing your car in the lot at the mall? The navigator will help find it when you're done shopping.

More helpful features
Speed limit displays with visual warnings on major roads in both the U.S. and Europe help keep you in check. You'll see photoReal™ junction views that provide easy-to-read and realistic representations of complicated interchanges — including signs — so you can approach upcoming maneuvers with confidence. You'll also find a photo viewer, "Where Am I?" emergency aid, audiobook player, trip planner, and other helpful Garmin features.

Garmin 3D Traffic
The nüvi 2475LT features free lifetime traffic updates using Garmin's 3D Traffic service, which incorporates data from active devices on the road, historical traffic patterns, and other factors like construction, concerts, and sporting events to give you a comprehensive look at congestion in most metropolitan areas. Best of all, you won't have to pay a penny more for this service over the life of your nüvi.

Travel the globe with confidence
Finding a destination is easy and intuitive, and Garmin gives you 8 million searchable listings for everything from food to attractions. Want to remember a special spot that's not listed among the points of interest? Upload your own custom spots for future travels. The 4.3" screen makes the 2475LT perfect for viewing on the road but not too big for your pocket, and you can view it in display or portrait orientation, depending on your needs.

Text-to-speech voice prompts say street names at turns, and Lane Assist helps point the way through tricky maneuvers. In select instances, the screen will split automatically to give you a photoReal view of the junction so you'll have a clear picture of the next turn. When it's time to leave the highway, the navigator can give you all the options near the exit whether you're seeking food, gas, or a bed for the night.

The unit also includes City Navigator Europe NT 2012 maps, with maps of most of Europe. The maps include more than 8-million points of interest (POIs) to help you find the destination you desire.

Bluetooth Hands-Free Calling: Using the built-in Bluetooth wireless technology, the nüvi 2475LT can connect to your mobile phone to become a hands-free device. The range of the Bluetooth coverage is approximately 33 feet. After pairing, you can receive incoming calls and place calls through the navigation unit. Outgoing calls can be place by entering the number directly, calling a number in your phone book, using the call history, or selecting a Point of Interest. Your home phone number can be saved so you can call home using a single button. You can check the Garmin website for a list of supported mobile phones.

You must be able to connect your device via a high-speed internet connection in order to check the loaded map version and download the map update.

microSD Card Slot: The nüvi 2475LT has a microSD card slot so you can store and use optional cityXplorer maps (available from Garmin), or download custom voices and vehicles from the Garmin Garage.

Power Requirements: The Garmin nüvi 2475LT is powered by your vehicle's battery using the included 12-volt cigarette lighter power adapter. The built-in Lithium-Ion battery will provide up to 2.5 hours of use after a 4-hour charge. An optional AC adapter (150ACNUVI, sold separately) allows you to operate the unit on ordinary household current. The unit can be powered by your computer when it is connected via a USB cable.

Navigation Features

Garmin Guidance 2.0: The Garmin nüvi 2475LT features Garmin Guidance 2.0, an advanced navigation engine with a faster, more intuitive user interface to enhance the speed and accuracy of searches and routing. The main menu gives you two simple choices: "Where To?" and "View Map." You can see and select businesses on the map without the need to page through menus. When traveling interstate highways, the Enhanced Exit Services feature enables you to know what you'll find when you exit the highway.

Free Lifetime Traffic: With free Lifetime Traffic from 3D Traffic, you can avoid traffic tie-ups that will delay your travel. 3D Traffic delivers traffic updates over one of the most extensive live traffic avoidance systems which checks traffic conditions more than 2 billion times per month. 3D Traffic combines historical traffic data, current traffic data from active devices in transit, and current non-trend traffic incidents, to help you avoid traffic jams and keep you moving. The nüvi 2475LT comes with the GTM26 Traffic Receiver with its integrated cigarette lighter power adapter. An antenna extension cable is also included for better reception of the FM traffic signal.

Notes: Lifetime Traffic requires no subscription or activation. Traffic updates are available in approximately 125 metropolitan areas throughout the U.S. and Canada. Traffic subscriptions for European countries are available for purchase from Garmin.

Points of Interest: The built-in maps include over 8-million Points of Interest (POIs) such as hotels, restaurants, gas stations, attractions, and ATMs. are included to help you find the destination you desire.

The free POI Loader software can be downloaded from the Garmin website to assist you in creating Custom POIs.

Lane Assist: The Lane Assist feature lets you know in advance which lane you need to be in to make an upcoming turn. In select metropolitan areas, the nüvi 2475LT will enter split screen mode to display the photoReal junction view, a realistic depiction of the junction, complete with road signs and arrows to indicate the proper lane for navigation.

Map View Options: You can choose from a 3D map view or two 2D map views (Track Up or North Up) as you navigate to your destination.

Speed Limits: As you travel along a major road, the speed limit is displayed on the screen alongside of the vehicle's speed display. If you are exceeding the speed limit, the color of the vehicle speed indication changes to red. If the highway's posted speed limit has changed since the last map update, you can change the speed limit display on the unit.

Where Am I?: The "Where Am I?" feature gives you instant access to important information in case of an emergency. When you select "Where Am I?" from the menu, you get the coordinates (including elevation) of your current position, plus the nearest address and intersections. There are also buttons to help you locate the nearest hospitals, police stations, gas stations, and roadside assistance. You can also save the location for future reference.

Garmin Locate: To assist you in finding your parked vehicle, the Garmin Locate feature saves your location to memory when you remove the device from the windshield mounting cradle while the device is on. You can search for your vehicle's location using the Last Spot button in the menu.

Pedestrian Navigation: In addition to vehicle navigation, the nüvi 2475LT can also be useful when walking around town. If you have the optional cityXplorer maps loaded into the unit, the pedestrian navigation feature adds public transportation options as you travel on foot.

Destination Search: When the Where To? button is pressed, you can use the search tools to find your destination and plan your route. The search tools allow you to search for cities, addresses, intersections, or coordinates. The new Search Bar lets you directly enter a category, brand name, address, or city name. The unit's memory stores the last 50 locations you have found so you can quickly find a previous destination.

In addition, you can purchase icon and voice bundles with Star Wars (Yoda, Darth Vader) and Nickelodeon (SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer) themes.

trafficTrends: When the trafficTrends feature is enabled, the nüvi 2475LT automatically records historic traffic data and uses that data to calculate more efficient routes. This information is sent to Garmin when you connect your device to myGarmin (your personal account site on the Garmin website) using your computer. Different routes may be calculated based on traffic trends for the day of the week or the time of day.

Trip Planner: You can create and save a trip with multiple destinations using the Trip Planner. Once you have entered your destinations, you can manually set them in the order of your preference, or allow the device to calculate the most efficient route. Trip itineraries can be saved in memory for future use.

Photo Navigation: Pictures with location information can be uploaded to the nüvi 2475LT or to an inserted microSD card. You can use the GarminConnect section of the Garmin website to search for previously uploaded "Geotagged" photos. Once the photos are loaded into the device, you can set a destination based on the photo's imbedded location data.

Trip Computer: The trip information page displays your current speed and direction, and provides helpful statistics about your trip. Dual trip odometers keep up with your total mileage. The page also indicates the distance and driving time to your next maneuver, as well as the distance and driving time to your destination. Your maximum speed and moving average speed are also displayed. The information can be reset in advance of your next trip.

Where I've Been/Trip Log: The Where I've Been application allows you to view your previous routes and places you have stopped on the map. In addition, the device keeps a Trip Log, which is a record of the path you have traveled. The Travel History setting must be enabled in order for the Where I've Been and Trip Log features to function.

Other Features

Picture Viewer: The nüvi 2475LT's Picture Viewer can display JPEG photo images that you have stored in the device or on a microSD card. The images can be displayed in a slideshow, or set a single image as wallpaper.

Audiobook Player: The device can play audiobooks from Audible.com. A subscription to Audible.com is required. Audiobooks can be loaded to the device or to a microSD card. You can browse titles, authors, or narrators. Bookmarks can be added, so the player will automatically resume from the point where you last stopped. Playback controls include play, pause, fast forward, fast reverse, next chapter, and previous chapter.

Note: The nüvi 2475LT cannot play digital music files.

GPS Simulator: When indoors, you can activate the built-in GPS simulator and practice using the unit. This turns off the GPS receiver so it's not searching for satellites, saving battery power.

ecoRoute: The optional ecoRoute feature calculates the fuel economy and the fuel price of navigating to a destination, and offers tools for improving fuel efficiency. The ecoRoute application can be purchased from the Garmin Online Store.

Tools: Other tools that can be found on the device include a world clock, alarm clock, calculator, unit converter, and a language guide.
