Scenic Routes is intended for drivers looking for guidance through an area’s most beautiful landscapes and vistas. Rand McNally provides more than 250 routes and pre-planned trips through the U.S. and Canada, and the package includes information on dining, attractions, and lodging. You can choose from a range of routes, from in-depth regional tours to weekend getaways. Or you can customize a route by deleting the parts you’re not interested in.
The City Guides provide information on the best attractions, family activities, historic landmarks, and nightlife spots for more than 1,400 U.S. and Canadian cities. Once a location is selected, the navigator will plot a route to it.
The guides will be available for select Navigon navigators and available to download from navigon.com in spring 2009. The retail prices will be about $20 each. The guides can be activated through Navigon’s downloadable software, Navigon Fresh, which lets you plug your navigator into a PC through a USB connection to manage, update, and customize your GPS unit.
