the pronunciation of city and street names allowing you to speak an address into
the unit. You can also answer questions
asked by the unit while driving, so you can keep your eyes on the road with the
combination of text-to-speech and speech recognition technology. The GPS unit
also announces directions and street names
giving you easier guidance and allowing you to focus better on the road ahead.

position and then select the appropriate icon.
