Autoroute basemap provides detail for interstates,
interstate exit data, highways, rivers and lakes in the
United States, Canada and Mexico (no exit data in Mexico),

downloaded maps from MapSource City
(included with purchase), StreetPilot III provides turn-by-turn
guidance down to residential street-level detail. By simply
entering an address or intersection or pointing at the
map, the StreetPilot III will automatically calculate
a route and provide turn-by-turn directions to that location.
If the calculated route is deviated from, a new route
will immediately be calculated.
mapping software contains turn restrictions and users
can also look up services and points of interest and view
the address, phone number and map location. "Faster
Time", "Shorter Distance", or "Off
Road" can be selected for route calculation, and
the user can choose among routes for Car, Truck, Bus,
Emergency, Taxi, Delivery, Bicycle, Pedestrian, as well
as being able to request that U-turns, Toll Roads or Highways
be avoided in routes.
Voice commands are provided through a combination 12-volt
power adapter and external speaker system which has volume
control and muting capabilities. The StreetPilot III can
easily be viewed in any lighting condition, thanks to
its 4-inch, 16 colour, high resolution display (305 x
160 pixels) and backlighting on screen for low-visibility
ROUTES ON THE STREETPILOT III:
The StreetPilot III will perform
automatic route calculation from ONLY the built-in basemap, maps loaded from the
City Navigator or City Select CD-ROMs (with reduced routing information).
Maps from other MapSource products can be loaded into the StreetPilot III to provide additional detail in areas not
covered by City Navigator, but auto-routing is not available.

CUSTOMER PIC: Here's a photo of my Garmin Pilot III guiding
me up and over a water crossing at the east arm of Great
Slave lake. Helicopter is a Bell 206 Jetranger. Just climbed
through 2000ft for 3000ft to get over the crossing. On
my way back from the eastern arctic to Yellowknife. Enjoy...
