Garmin nuvi 500 Automobile Navigator 010-00700-10 Automobile Navigators

Perfect for crossing over the threshold from city to backcountry, the Garmin nuvi 500 provides a high-sensitivity GPS receiver with turn-by-turn navigation in a ruggedized, waterproof exterior that you can use while hiking, biking, or boating. With its high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix satellite prediction, nuvi 500 locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons--whether in the city or out in the wilds. And it easily switches modes (driving, walking, biking and boating) to navigate through your active lifestyle depending on your activity. Other features include a 3.5-inch touchscreen, microSD memory expansion, geocaching GPX file capabilities for complete cache descriptions and hints, and Garmin Connect Photos--enabling you to associate your favorite images with saved locations.


The waterproof nuvi 500 guides you while you drive, hike, bike or boat.
The nuvi 500 comes preloaded with the highly detailed City Navigator North America NT maps for the lower 48 states, which also includes topographic maps for a better perspective of your elevation. The map data, provided by NAVTEQ, features over six million points of interest, including hotels, restaurants, gas stations, ATMs and attractions.


The DEM basemap (above) provides shaded contours, and the nuvi also includes a digital compass.

Weighing 7.6 ounces and measuring less than an inch thin, the nuvi 500 fits easily in a purse, backpack, or jacket pocket. The 3.5-inch color touchscreen display (with 320 x 240-pixel resolution) is easy to read even in direct sunlight, and the nuvi's easy-to-use interface means you'll spend more time enjoying the outdoors and less time searching for information. Simple controls and sub-screens make it easy to enter or search for destinations and get data about your trip. Simply touch the color screen to enter a destination, and nuvi takes you there with turn-by-turn voice directions, 2-D or 3-D maps and smooth map updates as you navigate. Its digital elevation model (DEM) mapping shows you shaded contours at higher zoom levels, giving you a big picture of the surrounding terrain. In addition, the nuvi accepts custom points of interest (POIs), such as school zones and safety cameras and lets you set proximity alerts to warn you of upcoming POIs.
Garmin's HotFix capability automatically calculates and stores satellite locations, greatly reducing satellite acquisition time so that you can turn the unit on and get going. With HotFix, your nuvi 500 remembers the position of all satellites it is tracking when you turn it off, and calculates their movements in order to predict where they should be the next time you turn it on. HotFix can predict satellite positions for up to 3 days after the device was last turned off.
Conveniently plug in optional preloaded microSD memory cards for all your outdoor activities on land or water. Just insert an optional Garmin MapSource card with detailed street maps (such as for locales outside the United States), and the nuvi 500 provides turn-by-turn directions to your destination. And with optional BlueChart g2 Vision maps, you'll get everything you need for a great day on the water including depth contours, navaids and harbors. Plus, a user-replaceable lithium-ion battery will give you up to eight hours of battery life (depending on use).

#652 MA bicycle route 4: Rough Detail of a stage (up to Kassel)
#652 MA bicycle route 4: Rough Detail of a stage (up to Kassel)
This is a very simplified map Creating a route So How does creating a route works and how does "making a guide works". Here a very brief and simple version. This makes clear that it is more as Start in Rheda; Go Ahead and good luck on the way to Kassel. Basic Route The basic route of this section is140km and the longest section. All printed names are villages and cities what for any kind of reason are worth to visit it. To give an idea: By Hovelhof is the source of the Ems river. Soest and Hamelen are historical cities. Rietberg is an important "knot" on the trip. Altenbeken has a beautiful railway bridge; a must see for railway fans! route and alternatives The purple line is the basic route. The brown fields are hills. The orange lines are some alternatve routes. To give a clue here. The Route over Detmold seems to be extra. That is true. 2 reasons. For those who plan this stage in 2 or 3 days; this is the most simple mountain stage; via the 207m peak of Augustdorf. The Paderborn-Altenbeken and Rietburg-Warburg tracks are more difficult to climb. Second reason is that Detmold also houses a touristical hightlight; the Arminius statue. And Perhaps some one would plan Bielefeld and or Hameln on the route preparation is much work As you can imagine, it goes to far to describe such simply options briefly. It shows only that much work has to be done to prepare a route. For sure is that I drive the Purple route in 1 day; that is 140km; the longest section. The Detmold, Hameln, Bielefeld area is already "done" last year. Preparation is much work. It is also fun. After that the big fun is doing it. Behind is the fun to struggle with the data and info to organize it; becoming a chapter in the guide.
