Garmin’s emergency button is also present in the navigator. When you tap the button, it displays your latitude and longitude, nearest street, intersections, hospitals, police and gas stations.
JPEG images are also supported in the Nuvi 880. It has been Garmin’s custom to import addresses and Panoramio photos from Google. The Nuvi 880 is no exception and you can plan your trip and download all the addresses and the attractions to your device. As is the case for almost all recent Garmin products, you can purchase Garmin Travel Guides. Just plug it in to your device’s card slot and enjoy your trip.
In addition to the standard navigation features such as traffic alerts, route choice, route avoidance, and route recalculation, the Nuvi 880 supports multi-destination routing, which is not present in the entry level Garmin GPS navigators. An FM transmitter is present and the unit receives traffic information over the FM channel. The Nuvi 880 comes with a 3-month trial MSN Direct subscription, but the MSN Direct connection cable is not included. So, either you will not be able to use the free subscription or you'll need to purchase the additional cable if you want to test this feature out. The Garmin Nuvi 880 has Bluetooth and supports hands-free communication. One of the features worth mentioning is the “car finder." When you detach the unit from its holder, it records your position. If you are a person like me who loses his car every time he parks somewhere, then you will find this feature amazing. It also comes in handy when you are in a place you do not know well and cannot figure out where you parked.
