Garmin has raised the bar for portable automotive navigation with two new products: the StreetPilot 2610 and 2650.



Just choose your destination using StreetPilot’s touch screen or remote control to be automatically guided with turn-by-turn directions and voice prompts. Both the 2610 and 2650 feature color displays, built-in maps, and everything needed to download additional map detail and look up points of interest and addresses in seconds. Select maps and transfer data directly to the unit through a USB connection and onto a standard CompactFlash® memory card. These products are powered using the external speaker with 12-volt adapter cable or A/C power adapter (both are included in the purchase).

The StreetPilot 2650 also has dead reckoning capabilities, so you’ll continue to get navigation guidance even if you lose GPS reception, such as in intense urban environments with tall buildings and tunnels. To achieve dead reckoning, the 2650 features an internal angular rate sensor, an external speed sensor input, and an external reverse light sensor input. (Please note: The StreetPilot 2650 can only be purchased through auhorized installation dealers because the product requires a connection to a vehicle's speedometer and backup lights. Customers will not be able to buy this product over the counter or install it themselves.)







Features include:-
  • Powerful microprocessor for fast redraw and route calculation
  • Built-in patch antenna with an MCX-type connector for optional external GPS antenna
  • 128 MB CompactFlash data card slot for map storage
  • Audio and visual navigation instructions and warnings
  • 3.3" W x 1.7" H, 305 x 160 pixels; bright, automotive-grade 8-bit color LCD display with automatic dimming backlight and touch screen
  • 5.6" W x 3.2" H x 2.0" D unit dimensions
  • Alphanumeric remote control
  • Turn-by-turn automatic route generation
  • Indefinite data storage (no memory battery required)
  • Integrated dash mounting system provides easy adjustment and quick release

StreetPilot 2610/2650 software version 2.50 as of November 10, 2003

Changes made from version 2.40 to 2.50:

    - Fixed a problem which could cause heading to remain fixed for a short period at power-on.
    - Fixed a problem which—in some rare intersection geometries—could cause an automatic re-calculation to occur when it was not required.
    - Fixed a problem which could cause the tail portion of the turn arrow to be drawn without the head.
    - Fixed a problem which could cause 'vehicle centering' on the map to not work as a result of changing the tabs in/out state.
    - Fixed a problem which could cause map tabs to disappear.
    - Improved configurability by splitting the large Routing tab into two smaller ones.
    - Added Satellite Status custom tab option.

I wonder if they sat in a dark room, trying to devise the most difficult and awkward power connector for the 2610 GPS....

"Lets design a weird triangular shape connector that takes ages to try to line up..." Is what they must have said..

Job, done, they have succeeded..
