Companies the world over are trying to come up with better GPS navigators every day and the latest from Garmin proves just that. The all new Garmin GTU 10 is a cut above the rest. Atleast, this is what the people at Garmin have to say about the model! This is the sole reason I took a better look at the device to check whether it is truly a masterpiece or is yet another navigator requiring a lot of changes.
The Garmin GTU 10 has a simple design and a user frindly software. It measures something around 3 x 1.25 x 0.75 inches. The Garmin GTU 10 has a waterproof body and thus includes a single rubber power button. It includes a mini USB port and an LED power indicator as well. The small design of the Garmin GTU 10 allows the navigator to be carried anywhere by fixing the same to objects or hanging it by a loop strap.
Once you procure the Garmin GTU 10, you are to connect the device to a PC and register the same at my.garmin.com. The best thing about the Garmin GTU 10 is the power usage settings which allows you to choose ‘heavy’ setting, ‘balanced’ setting, ‘moderate’ setting or even the ‘on demand’ setting. The ‘heavy’ setting reports of the location every 30 seconds and thus the device runs out of power in 24 hours. The ‘balanced’ setting reports every 5 minutes and Garmin GTU 10 runs out of juice in 3 to 10 days. The ‘moderate’ setting allows you to know of the location every 15 minutes and thus extends the battery from 1 to 4 weeks. Lastly, the ‘on demand setting’ tells you the location only when you ask for the same. The battery life depends on the kind of usage that the Garmin GTU 10 undergoes while on this setting. Apart from these there are tons of other applications and features that have actually made Garmin GTU 10, the talk of the town. The Garmin Tracker application available on Android and iOS devices lets you replicate almost all the functions of the Garmin domain and thus allows you to keep a tab on the device no matter where you are. The Garmin GTU 10 comes at a price tag of INR 10,000 and includes a year’s subscription of Garmin Tracker application.
Having said all about the Garmin GTU 10, what can we conclude about the same? Well, the Garmin GTU 10 is a good device on offer. The Geo-fences function and the Garmin Tracker application make it a tempting device. It is a good tool to find the whereabouts of your pets or family members and as mentioned earlier, the best thing about the same is its power usage settings. Thus if you are looking for a good GPS device which would never let you down, then you can always go for the Garmin GTU 10. It is one device which has tons of features rolled into it and dishes out a power performance.
