Avis and Budget car rental agencies in Iceland have made advanced GPS navigation systems available with any rental. Garmin Nuvi 360 GPS navigation will be an option on any vehicle in their fleet.
Avis and Budget car rental agencies in Iceland announce the addition of the Garmin Nuvi 360 GPS navigation system to their rental fleet.
The Garmin Nuvi 360 is the ultimate travel companion. It has all of the features that you would expect in a modern GPS unit: large color touch-screen display, voice direction, and automatic routing. But touring in an exotic place like Iceland can sometimes call for even more high-tech assistance.
To make explorers even more confident, the units used by Avis and Budget have been equipped with optional European travel guide updates that allow them to give useful information about the surrounding areas. The automated system provides lessons on the history, cultural events, and places of interest in the region, effectively becoming a portable electronic tour guide.
The upgraded devices provide users with exchange rates and restaurant suggestions, as well as translation services for easier interaction with the locals. In addition, Garmin fits Bluetooth wireless capabilities and an mp3 player into the Nuvi 360, which can be mounted in the car or will easily fit in your pocket, weighing just over five ounces.
Iceland is becoming a prized travel destination for its unique combination of unspoiled wilderness and thriving nightlife. Vacationers from around the world are making excursions to this rugged country to enjoy outdoor pursuits like horseback riding, glacier travel, and hiking, and to enjoy the native’s famous Scandinavian beauty.
The Garmin Nuvi 360 will be available through Avis and Budget car rental agencies in Iceland for a fee of 1000 ISK (roughly 15 USD). More information can be found at www.avis.is or www.budget.is.
