Garmin Launches Five New Ultra-Thin Satnavs

1390tTo hell with buying an iPhone app for your satnav needs – nothing beats a standalone unit, and these latest nüvi devices from Garmin look pretty tasty.

Dubbed the 1000 series, the new nüvi satnavs measure in at just 15.5mm thick, and all come loaded with the latest version of WhereIs mapping. There's a range of features and prices, all of which are detailed below:

Other differentiating features include colour-coding the units to represent Bluetooth capabilities (if it's black, you can call back; If it's silver, there's no Bluetooth inside and there are few words that rhyme with silver so get over it) and the ability to enter an address without knowing what suburb it's in (thank the Gods!)
