will display the next maneuver as you head towards your destination. Even when
you are not routing towards a specific destination, the GuideView Window will
display a digital compass, current street or freeway you are traveling on, and
city/state you are currently driving in so you always know where you are headed.
You can even touch the GuideView Window to show the posted speed limit of the
road you are driving on. This versatile functionality allows you to efficiently
view and control your music playback and still view your next turn, without
having to exit out of your audio screen.
Voice Guidance/Text to Speech: In addition to graphical
on-screen directions and maps, the INA-W910 provides voice guidance and

technologies - satellite-linked positioning data, gyro sensor technology (to
determine the vehicle's direction) and accelerometer technology (to gauge the
vehicle's speed) - resulting in continuous coverage of the location of your

||select from approximately 6 million
Point-of-Interest (POI) locations stored on the flash drive; destinations
are sorted by POI Name or by POI Category and are listed in order of
distance from your current location; search near your current location, near
your destination, along your current route, or near a specific city
||from recent destinations
||save frequented locations in the unit's
address book to quickly add as a destination
||enter a street name (you can first enter
a city) and choose from the intersecting streets

Route Preferences: Route Preferences allow you to have the
unit calculate routes based on quickest time or shortest route. You can also
avoid freeways, toll roads, and ferries; as well a use time restricted roads.
TMC (Traffic Message Channel): The Alpine INA-W910 can
provide you with even better routes if Traffic Message Channel (TMC) information
is available along your route. TMC is a specific application of the FM Radio
Data System (RDS) used for broadcasting real-time traffic and weather
information. The receiver will automatically search the FM radio stations for
TMC data, and the decoded information will immediately be used in route
planning. The moment Alpine Navigation Software receives traffic information
that may affect your route, the program will warn you that it is recalculating
the route, and navigation will continue with a new route that is optimal
considering the most up-to-date traffic conditions. Y
