One of the most convenient features of the nüvi is the arrival-time indicator, conveniently located in the bottom-left corner of the map screen (Figure 4.3). It gives you an amazingly accurate estimate of the time when you’ll reach your destination.

The first time I used this feature was when my wife called to ask me when I’d be home for dinner. “At 6:12,” I told her. She made fun of me for the precise response, but I pulled into the drive at exactly 6:12—to her amazement (and my own!). Generally, the closer you are to your destination, the more accurate this feature is, but on this particular day, I was more than an hour away from home.
The arrival-time feature is your friend, and you’ll come to appreciate it very quickly.
