There are two nüvi 2400 series models available in the UK: the nüvi 2440 and the nüvi 2460LT. The nüvi 2460LT which features voice activated navigation lets users control nüvi by voice, so they can keep their eyes on the road and hands on the wheel. Simply wake up nüvi with a customizable voice command and begin speaking menu options that are displayed on the screen.  Bluetooth connectivity lets users make and receive phone calls when paired with a compatible Bluetooth-enabled phone.  Being lifetime traffic-enabled it helps notify drivers of traffic delays and road construction and suggest detours around them.

Both models feature nüRoute with trafficTrends™ and myTrends™ predictive routing.  With trafficTrends, nüvi 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, nüvi will, over time, begin to anticipate a route to favourite destinations as soon as the device is powered up.

The nüvi 2400 series lets consumers customize their unit in new ways as well.  Users can give a one- to five-star rating to any point of interest.  When the unit is connected to a myGarmin account, they can submit their ratings and receive an updated community database of ratings from other users.  Owners can also customize their device’s main menu to display their most-used icons for quick navigation.

The nüvi 2440 has an RRP of £179.99 and the nüvi 2460LT has an RRP of £219.99. They are expected to be available in the first quarter of 2011.
