Garmin’s® nüvi® 865T Combines Voice Activation and Lane Assist with Junction View

Nuvi 865 CF
Garmin the global leader in satellite navigation, announces the nüvi 865T, adding lane assist with junction view and a portable, powerful voice-activated navigator.

“Combining two of Garmin’s most popular features – speech recognition and lane assist with junction view – the nüvi 865T lets drivers keep both hands on the wheel and takes the guesswork out of navigation,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales.

Critically acclaimed for its accuracy and clarity, Garmin’s speech recognition technology has set the industry standard and is considered the ultimate safety and convenience feature. After mounting a push-to-talk wireless remote to their steering wheel, users can effortlessly program the nüvi by speaking words that correspond to the buttons on the touchscreen display.

 Drivers can keep their eyes on the road – almost any common task can be performed without ever touching the unit. Speech recognition is available for American English, British English, European French, European Spanish, German, Italian and Dutch languages.


For a clear picture of the road ahead, the nüvi 865T features lane assist with junction view that details upcoming manoeuvres and specific driving directions – including road sign detail and arrows indicating the proper lane for navigation.

 At any time, drivers can speak the phrase, “where am I?” and their device will display its exact latitude and longitude coordinates, closest hospitals, police stations, petrol stations and nearest address and junction. Drivers can also associate their favourite images with saved locations using Garmin Connect Photos – where users can choose from millions of geo-tagged photos provided by Google’s Panoramio photo sharing community.

The nüvi 865T has Bluetooth wireless technology for hands-free calling when paired with compatible phones. These new premium navigators also boast an integrated FM wireless transmitter, allowing users to transmit turn-by-turn directions and street names, MP3s and audio books through their vehicle’s stereo. The nüvi 865T supports USB 2.0 High Speed, enabling the device to download music, photos and more within minutes. Like the rest of the nüvi 800 series, the nüvi 885T has front-firing speakers and a removable lithium-ion battery.

This powerful new sat-nav gives clear guidance on a 4.3” colour touchscreen display (480X272 pixels) and is preloaded with full European mapping. For faster satellite pick-up, the nüvi 865T has Garmin’s HotFix feature which automatically calculates and stores critical satellite information. To give drivers the ultimate in awareness, these nüvis also display speed limits for motorways and dual carriageways. 

The nüvi 865T has a recommended retail price of £399.99. For more information visit
