Posted: 04-Jan-2006 [Source: Garmin]

[Garmin debuts the iQue2000, an entry-level Palm Powered PDA offering fully integrated GPS technology.]

Las Vegas -- Garmin International introduced the iQue 3000, a newly-styled, entry-level Palm Powered(tm) personal digital assistant (PDA) that offers fully integrated Global Positioning System (GPS) technology. The iQue 3000 expands Garmin's iQue Palm OS PDA product line, which currently includes the iQue 3200 and iQue 3600. The new iQue 3000 was introduced at the 2006 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

The iQue 3000 welcomes users with Garmin's easy-to-use "where to" or "view maps" interface. After entering a destination, the iQue 3000 will choose the fastest or shortest route to navigate the user from door to door. The unit automatically recalculates a route if the driver misses their turn and notifies drivers of their estimated time of arrival.

The compact iQue 3000 features Garmin's Que(tm) technology that offers complete integration between organization and GPS navigation functions. Que technology connects the Palm Address Book and Date Book to the GPS electronic map so that users can navigate directly to a specific address from the user's contact database or date book.

Users may download detailed street information onto their iQue 3000 from the installation DVD, which is a standard accessory. This industry-leading navigation database allows the user to look up nearly six million points of interest such as restaurants, hotels, transportation hubs, and banks. Map data is provided by NAVTEQ(tm)a world leader in premium-quality mapping.

Other specifications of the iQue 3000:

* Operating system: Palm OS 5

* Processor: Bravo 2.0 200 MHz with built-in GPS correlator

* Unit size (WxHxD)/Weight: 2.8" x 4.7" x 0.7"/ 5.2 oz

* Internal Memory: 32 MB RAM and 32 MB ROM

* Expandable Memory: microSD card included (128 MB microSD card for North America, or 256 MB preprogrammed microSD card for Europe and Australia)

* Battery: Rechargeable lithium-ion battery

The iQue 3000 is expected to be available in February 2006 at an estimated retail price of $399. The standard package includes a mini-USB synchronization cable, AC wall charger, suction cup mount auto cradle, microSD Card, 12-volt car charger, companion CD or DVD (US only) with owner's manual, City Navigator North America NT CD, and quick-reference guide.
