Aftermarket Garmin Navigation Available for Volvo Models

Having introduced the new Garmin navigation kit on two of its models last year, the Volvo S60 and the Volvo V60, Swedish manufacturer Volvo is now trying to bring all of its models up to date with all the advancement in navigational tool. The same kit used on the two models has now been made available for the entire Volvo range, as an accessory.

The Garmin system, called nuvi 3790, is perhaps one of the thinnest such devices on the market, measuring only nine millimeters. It can be easily integrated into any Volvo car by using the driver's windscreen pillar.

Garmin's nuvi 3790 features a multi-touch display that is capable of reacting to ten different commands, with the building and the major point of interest being rendered for the driver in 3D. The system uses Traffic Message Channel (TMC) radio data technology to alert the drivers about traffic jams and alternative routes.

The system, which will be offered in two versions, can be used by Volvo owners from around the world, as it comes with pre-loaded maps for Europe, US, Canada, Mexico or Russia (for the nuvi 3790), or with no maps at all, if you chose the 3760 version (in this case, the dealer will install the map for the places you are interested in).
