    It’s ultra-thin and preloaded with North American maps, verbalizes street names and
    gives you the most fuel efficient route with ecoRoute. What’s not to love about the
    nüvi 1250T?
    Slim and stylish
    The nüvi 1250T is 25 percent slimmer than other nüvis, and the 1200 and widescreen
    1300 series make for perfect travel tools. nüvi 1250T fits perfectly in your pocket
    or purse and, with the lithium-ion battery, it’s ideal for navigating by car or foot.
    Plus, nüvi 1250T’s Public Transit mode uses optional download CityXplorer to help you
    navigate public transportation, including subways, trams and buses.

    Know where you’re going

    Your nüvi 1250T has an intuitive interface that is easy to use. Just touch the color
    screen to quickly find addresses and services and for voice-prompted turn-by-turn
    navigation. The nüvi 1250T is preloaded with City Navigator NT street maps. It shows
    you nearly 6 million points of interest, 2-D or 3-D maps and speed limits for most
    major roads. You also get digital elevation maps that show you shaded contours at
    higher zoom levels, so you’ll always know your surrounding terrain. Its enhanced user
    interface means you can conveniently scroll between screens with the swipe of a
    finger. nüvi 1250T uses HotFix satellite prediction to calculate your position and
    get you to your destination as quickly as possible. Oh, and if nüvi 1250T’s millions
    of points of interest aren’t enough for you, you can always upload your own. 

    So much more than navigation

    Yes, nüvi 1250T will quickly get you where you’re going, but there’s so much more to
    enjoy. For instance, ecoRoute is a green feature that calculates your most
    fuel-efficient route and tracks fuel usage. It also has myriad travel tools,
    including a JPEG viewer, world travel clock with time zones, currency converter,
    measurement converter, calculator and more.

    Photo navigation allows you to download pictures from Garmin Connect Photos and
    navigate to them. And nüvi 1250T is compatible with MSN Direct, though a receiver
    purchase and subscription are required. nüvi 1250T’s “Where Am I” emergency locator
    always shows your location, especially when you need it most. Just tap the screen to
    get your exact latitude and longitude coordinates. “Where Am I” will also show you
    the nearest address and intersection, hospitals, police stations and gas stations.

    Your nüvi 1250T also comes with Garmin Lock anti-theft feature, and works with the
    free Garmin Garage, where you can download custom voices and vehicles. Plus, optional
    plug-in microSD cards enhance your nüvi 1250T experience.
