Garmin Advanced Nuvi Series 2405 and 2505 Units
Garmin's Advanced Nuvi line up adds a new Guidance 2.0 bundle of features to deliver a better experience overall for the driver. The improved Junction View/Lane Assist system offers photorealistic views with an improved database of 60,000 locations that have life-like sign detail to better mimic the actual location. With the split screen, you can see the junction before you get to it, and understand which lane to be in ahead of time.
Updated Traffic information - this is a very much needed update, and changes the Garmin Traffic quality dramatically with their "3D" system: "Also part of Guidance 2.0 is 3D Traffic, providing a whole new experience that includes more than just live traffic data. As part of the world’s most extensive traffic avoidance system, 3D Traffic checks traffic conditions 2 billion times per month using a multidimensional feed of real-time traffic data from quality sources including other Garmin nuvi owners, cellphone users, radio feeds, news stations, historical traffic data and fixed traffic sensors on major roads. With trafficTrends™, the Nuvi automatically learns patterns for traffic flow and predicts where traffic will be. All of this data is sent to the Nuvi to provide timely and accurate updates to keep you moving instead of sitting in traffic wasting time and fuel."
