The Garmin nuvi 1300 is an ultra-slim transportable GPS with a 4.3" widescreen display that is designed to be able to fit in your pocket when navigating a city by foot. This model is 25% thinner than other models, with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery to make it convenient to use in your car, or when on foot, and the optional CityXplorer helps navigate cities using public transportation such as subways, trams buses and more.  When first started, the 1200 greets you with 2 simple options; "Where to?" and "View Map".  When navigating to an address, it will give voice-promted turn by turn directions to arrive at your destination. It comes preloaded with City Navigator NT street maps for the continental U.S., Hawaii and Puerto Rico or one European region or country, and has millions of points of interest, and 2-D or 3-D maps.  Other features include ecoRoute, which calculates the most fuel efficient route, a JPEG viewer, world travel clock, currency and measurement converter, calculator and more.
