Good review report by Gpsmagazine on the 880 - its verdict: speech recognition that actually works.

http://www.gpsmagazine.com/

Very impressive indeed, can just say "McDonald", "Starbuk".. and the set will respond fairly quickly.

Only problem I guess is the way we named our roads and POIs (Ah Huat Bak Kut Teh) in this part of the world and the set may get very confused.... anyway, must start to save money liao....


We already have problems with TTS in our part of world, wonder what happens with speech recognition with all our multi-lingual dialects tone are factored in .... :ko:

:good: and :tq: for adding the link. 880 will be the benchmark for 1st generation on true speech recognition... the American slang and all... until a selected MY Datok can be installed to set the choice, perhaps the MY comic duet Indy & (what's the other called?).... will be considered by Garmin? :mrgreen:

Am I correct that the voice recognition system is pre-programmed and we cannot teach the device to learn how we pronounce our words?

:mrgreen: that must be brudder's "shadowy" answer lah... :evil:

My take is, NO, you can't interact in that respect but adding pre-recorded artists with default recordings... that will be the way it shall voice out... am curious how if any, is when a Hillbilly character is added.... :rolleyes: :ko: :mrgreen:

Hello everybody,

I'm relatively new to the GPS phenomenon and I think this is one of the most important technologies that we have. I currently have one of those GPS receivers that work with my pda but I am thinking of getting a full fledged unit so that i dont have to carry 2 things whenever I go out.

So why not just go for the newest and most compelling one to date, the NUVI 800 series! My question is:

Is it out in Singapore and is it worth the presumably extremely high price tag?

Thanks

:welcome: bro dongggoi :welcome: to malsingmaps

As you are new to GPS, please spend some time in our wiki section which contains a wealth of information. This should get ou started to understand the merits of the system.

Your question is relative. Different people have different expectations and affordability. Buy to your needs. Top of the line does not translate to usability.

Suggest you go to Garmin website under this link https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?cID=134. Go over the features on a need to basis. The 800 is still not available here in Singapore.

When it is released, go to a reputed shop and get a feel of it. Buy only if you understand, agree to your expectations.

FYI quite a few features are not usable in our region such as FM traffic, MSN® Direct...
