The iQue 3000 is a newly styled, entry-level Palm Powered™ personal digital assistant (PDA) that offers fully integrated Global Positioning System (GPS) technology. The iQue 3000 expands Garmin’s iQue Palm OS PDA product line, which currently includes the iQue 3200, iQue 3600 and iQue 3600a .
The iQue 3000 welcomes users with Garmin’s easy-to-use “where to” or “view maps” interface. After entering a destination, the iQue 3000 will choose the fastest or shortest route to navigate the user from door to door. The unit automatically recalculates a route if the driver misses his or her turn and notifies the driver of the estimated time of arrival.
The compact iQue 3000 features Garmin’s Que technology that offers complete integration between organization and GPS navigation functions. Que technology connects the Palm Address Book and Date Book to the GPS electronic map so that users can navigate directly to a specific address from the user’s contact database or date book.
Users may download detailed street information onto their iQue 3000 from the installation DVD, which is a standard accessory. This industry-leading navigation database allows the user to look up nearly six million points of interest, such as restaurants, hotels, transportation hubs, and banks. Map data is provided by NAVTEQ™—a world leader in premium-quality mapping.
