Perfect for unfamiliar spots and crowded places such as amusement parks, stadiums and shopping centre car parks.

Garmin nuvi 5000 includes advanced navigational features to take the worry out of travelling.

In addition, Garmin nuvi 5000 automatically sorts multiple destinations to provide an efficient route for errands or deliveries. It also displays speed limits for highways and Interstates. A trip log provides an electronic breadcrumb trail of up to 10,000 points, so you can see where you've been on the map.
