Garmin Nuvi 1250 | GPS Navigation System
This ultra-thin GPS has preloaded maps for Australia and New Zealand, announces streets by name and calculates a more fuel-efficient route with ecoRoute.
Take It With You
Twenty-five percent slimmer than other nüvis, you can take the ultra-thin 1250 anywhere. It easily fits in your pocket or purse, and its rechargeable lithium-ion battery makes it convenient for navigation by car or foot.
Get Turn-by-Turn Directions
nüvi 1250's intuitive interface greets you with two simple questions: "Where To?" and "View Map". Touch the colour screen to easily look up addresses and services and get voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions that speak street names to your destination.
It comes preloaded with detailed City Navigator Australia and New Zealand street maps, over 612,000 points of interest (POIs) in Australia, 2-D or 3-D maps and the speed limit for most major roads in Australia. Its digital elevation maps show you shaded contours at higher zoom levels, giving you a big picture of the surrounding terrain.
With the 1250's enhanced user interface, you can slide your finger to conveniently scroll between screens. You can also upload Custom Points of Interest (POIs). And with HotFix satellite prediction, nüvi calculates your position faster to get you there quicker.
Keeping you safe on the road
Speed limits are now provided for most major metropolitan areas, most major road networks and interconnecting roads across Australia. nüvi’s speed display will turn red once you are over the speed limit. It also comes preloaded with speed and red light cameras for the Australian map. Additional school zone alerts are available via free download (Australia only).
Go Beyond Navigation
Navigation is just the beginning. nüvi 1250 saves you fuel and money with ecoRoute — a green feature that calculates the most fuel-efficient route, tracks fuel usage and more. The 1250 includes many travel tools including JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock with time zones, currency converter, measurement converter, calculator and more.
With photo navigation, you can download pictures from Garmin Connect™ Photos and navigate to them. It's also traffic compatible (selected Australian cities only) with the purchase of the GTM-25 traffic receiver (not included). With its "Where Am I?" emergency locator, you always know your location.
Simply tap the screen to get your exact latitude and longitude coordinates, the nearest address and intersection, and the closest hospitals, police stations and fuel stations. The 1250 features Garmin Lock™, an anti-theft feature, and is compatible with our free Garmin Garage where you can download custom voices and vehicles. Enhance your travel experience with optional plug-in microSD cards.
