The StreetPilot portable GPS automotive navigation system features voice prompting, high-resolution touch-screen, remote control, ultra-fast map drawing and a compact design for simple transfer between vehicles.

The latest addition to Garmin's StreetPilot Series builds on the StreetPilot III with touch-screen functionality, wireless infrared alphanumeric remote control, and a more compact and portable design.

The StreetPilot 2610 incorporates a powerful ARM 920T microprocessor for faster route calculation and map redraw faster than ever and the unit includes a 128 MB CompactFlash card and a USB interface for updating mapping information.

The device features turn-by-turn automatic route generation and voice prompts (up to 50 stored routes, 500 waypoints, and 2000 track log points), 12-channel GPS receiver, street level data and points of interest and an external speaker with 12-volt adapter cable.

The new 2650 model also includes an interface with the vehicle's odometer system that provides seamless operation when a GPS signal is unavailable.

The StreetPilot 2610 and 2650 are available now.
