Garmin Prestige Line: Garmin Nuvi 3450 and 3490 series

The Garmin Nuvi Prestige line comes in two basic flavors, the Nuvi 3450 and Nuvi 3490 - both come with the Guidance 3.0 bundle giving users a better navigation experience in the svelte multi-touch screen form factor.   

The Guidance 3.0 system has the new 3D traffic capability that runs on the HD radio back bone giving not only more accurate data, but more of it so you can get a better overall view of your drive and alternates should traffic be an issue. The added My Trends feature also learns your routes and starts to recognize where you are driving without punching in a destination.

Finally, the system also adds Text Reading features to allow you to get and listen to your text messages without having to take your eyes off the road...... just don't answer them back by typing...... edit: The feature also allows you to answer back. The connection is across Bluetooth.

BirdsEye Junction View - Some complex junctions will come up with satellite images of the junction allowing you to see exactly what's going on from above.

Its a shame they aren't sending gas prices as part of the HD Radio feed.

The safetext feature also allows you to answer the text by voice no typing required.
