>> The Garmin Nuvi series has a great track record for pumpin' out quality devices. I'm Brian Tong from CNET.com and today we're shining the light bright on the Garmin Nuvi 880, our editors' top GPS pick for this year's Holiday gift guide. ^M00:00:14 [ Music ] ^M00:00:20 >> The Garmin Nuvi 880 is sleek and simple with a great looking 4.3-inch wide screen that's bright and easy to read. The touch screen is spacious and really responsive to our commands. What makes this device different from other models is its speech recognition capabilities. Other competitors have this tech, but Nuvi's voice capabilities and accuracy set it apart. Now you'll need to use this microphone that you can attach to your steering wheel, but its well worth it. There are 30 different voice command functions like finding an address, adjusting the volume and accessing MSN Direct Services and it works like a charm. Find address. >> What city in California? >> San Francisco. >> What house number in San Francisco? >> Now you'll see a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack, a microSD card slot and a USB port on the device. It's packed with the features you'd expect from the Nuvi series like the ability to play MP3s and audio books and there's a picture viewer, world clock and other goodies like games. Now you can listen to the audio through the speaker, the FM modulator or the audio output and it has Bluetooth for wireless hands free calling, which lets you make and accept calls. MSN Direct Services bring weather, movie times, gas prices and traffic to an already topnotch package. Now, this is a great device, but what are some of the things that you guys should be aware of? Well, the Nuvi 880 is priced around $1200. Yes it's over a grand and with some online honey you can find it for a couple of $100 cheaper, but you guys gotta be aware. Now, another thing compared to other GPS devices route calculations take a little longer on the 880. It's not mundane, but there are units that do it faster. And I still don't like how there's no manual volume control buttons on the device, but you can adjust it with the voice commands. So those are just some minor complaints, but Garmin packs this bad boy with every feature you can think of and the stellar voice commands give it the edge and make it worthy of our CNET Editors' Choice award. I'm Brian Tong from CNET.com and if you're looking for the creme de la creme of GPS devices, the Garmin Nuvi 880 is where it's at. ^M00:02:26 [ Music ]
