All models feature nüRoute with traffic trends and myTrends predictive routing. With traffic Trends, the Garmin Nuvi GPS system automatically learns traffic flow trends to improve route calculation and better predict the estimated time of arrival based on time of day and day of week. With myTrends, the Garmin Nuvi GPS device will, over time, begin to anticipate a route to favourite destinations as soon as the GPS system is powered up.
