The 1300LM is a portable global positioning system receiver from Garmin that offers a step-up from the company's standard Nuvi 1300 model. Equipped with a 4.3-inch anti-glare color touchscreen, this model includes free lifetime map updates that can be downloaded from Garmin's website once every quarter. This ensures the most up-to-date locational information relating to new streets, houses and businesses within the continental US as well as Canada and Mexico. Voice-prompted turn-by-turn directions are provided via "City Navigator" technology, with over six million "Points Of Interest" that can be specified at the user's discretion. Two and three-dimensional maps are available with shaded contours in the latter for simulated elevation levels, all of which with full zooming support for optimal locational gauging. "HotFix" satellite technology is also included to provide the most accurate positioning possible, with a predictive function that takes over when the unit loses signal strength. "EcoRoute" mode helps to ensure the most fuel-efficient routes with on-the-go detouring options, with a customizable fuel usage reader that works within the parameters of a given vehicle. The 1300LM also supports pedestrian navigation, with "CityXplorer" software available that provides information on bus, train and other public transit systems in a variety or larger cities. Photo navigation is available through the "Garmin Connect" online webpage, as well as downloadable car markers and narration markers through the "Garmin Garage" webpage.
