The intuitive user interface with color-coded menus and touchscreen functions make the two new models extremely enjoyable and easy to use. They feature a clear design with clean lines, and the slim, exceptionally portable design makes them not only practical, but attractive as well. Both multimedia navigators come pre-loaded with high resolution 2D and 3D maps for immediate navigational use and the uost accuracy. The Harman Kardon GPS-300 provides fast door-to-door navigation throughout all of Western Europe. The map segments in navigation mode appear much larger to users in the 10 cm widescreen display than in many other devices. The high resolution, exceptionally bright display and anti-aliased graphics and text enhance the visual experience.
