Where, oh where, has my anything gone?

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

Garmin is known for their exceptional pin-point accuracy with their long line of GPS units.  If you have ever used one when traveling, you know the importance of getting to your destination, safely and quickly, no matter where it is.

Garmin has created a product that will help you keep an eye out, not for directions, but where your prized possessions may be if lost.  A little bigger than a common USB device, the Garmin GTU 10 provides security and piece of mind for the important things in life.  When you place the GTU 10 on your family pet, inside your car, backpack, or anything else,  you can keep track on your smartphone, just where exactly it is.  Look for it at Abt soon!!

 

New App Makes Using A GPS A Bit Safer

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

Wikitude is a new app that allows users to reap the benefits of a GPS on their phone, while still keeping an eye on the road.  Ordinarily, when you glance to see what direction you are going, you take your eyes off the road.  With Wikitude, your cell phone’s camera is used to stream live video of the road ahead while keeping up-to-the minute with where to turn and when.

A really neat feature on Wikitude is that it can search surrounding areas for geo-referenced content using the camera and the device’s sensors. The objects’ information is displayed in the cam right where the real object is located.

Garmin at Abt

Hi, I’m Carl P. and I’d like to tell you about the new Garmin Nuvi 3790T.  When my helicopter is in the shop and I’m forced to drive my Tesla Roadster Sport to dinner (which is currently on display at the Abt atrium until tomorrow), I use this device to get me from point “A” to “B”.  It gives great directions every time.

The look and feel of this GPS is extremely elegant and complements my high-profile lifestyle perfectly.  It’s only 4.8” wide, 2.9” high and 0.35” deep so it fits into the pocket of even my tightest fitting skinny jeans.  The display is a glass screen with an 800 x 480 pixel resolution so the quality of the picture on the screen is unparalleled when compared to other GPS units.

It has some pretty amazing features too.  When my fingers are tired from signing autographs all day, I can just tell it where I want to go and it finds the location without having to type anything.  It also has the ability to memorize your typical routes based on how frequently you drive them and what times of day you are out.  This is great for those times I am too busy rescuing kittens from burning buildings I can’t even remember how to get home.

If you lead an adventurous lifestyle like me, or just need help getting from here to there, check out the Garmin Nuvi line of GPS units at www.abt.com or call one of our knowledgeable sales associates at 888-228-5800.
