Garmin Offers City Navigator China NT 2008
Posted: 28-Jul-2008 [Source: Garmin]

[Olympic travelers now have a new suite of digital maps for navigating Beijing that are available on a microSD/SD card..]

Olathe, Kan -- Garmin International announced today that it is now offering City Navigator® China NT 2008 -- just in time for tourists who plan on traveling to Beijing in August.

"This new suite of digital maps helps tourists locate stadiums, hotels, restaurants, and more -- so they can spend their time being spectators instead of worrying about how to get there," said Dan Bartel, Garmin's vice president of worldwide sales. "Presently, Garmin is the only satellite navigation manufacturer that is able to offer these highly-detailed maps."

Offering nearly seven million points of interest (POIs) and available on a convenient microSD/SD card, users simply insert the maps into virtually any current Garmin personal navigation device (PND). Road and POI names are presented in Pinyin, the most common Latin-alphabet phonetic spelling of Mandarin Chinese. These maps offer full coverage of China, including street level detail for more than 980 cities and the roads that connect them -- just select a destination and your nuvi gives you turn-by-turn directions to that location.

In addition, Garmin is posting a set of free custom POIs for the most important Chinese sporting venues in Beijing, Shenyang, Shanghai, Tianjin, Qinhuangdao, and Qingdao. Each entry is sorted by both city and type of sport -- and contains specific dates for competition. This custom POI database can be downloaded at http://www.garmin.com/extras.

City Navigator China NT is available now. Visit http://www.garmin.com for more information, compatibility, and pricing.
