Customer Questions & Answers for
Garmin nuvi 850 Portable GPS w/ 4.3" Screen, Speech Recognition & Spoken Street Names

The nuvi 850 not only tells you where to turn but listens to your spoken commands. With nuvi's innovative speech recognition, you safely interface with your voice allowing you to keep both hands on the wheel. Simply press the button on the remote, which attaches to the steering wheel, to activate speech recognition and begin speaking menu options. It even recognizes shortcut phrases for popular functions. Simply say, "Find Address", and speak an address to start navigating. Note: California and Minnesota state laws prohibit drivers from using suction mounts on their windshields while operating motor vehicles. Optional dashboard or friction mounts should be used in these states.

My maps weren't updated but the speed indicator worked while we were traveling through Canada. Sorry I can't give you more information. I was really looking forward to using it on the road but tech support wiped out all the maps before we left. DO NOT TRY TO UPDATE YOUR MAPS BEFORE A TRIP. ALLOW PLENTY OF TIME IF YOU DO....SERIOUSLY, LIKE A MONTH.
