The Garmin Nüvi GPS navigation system is your answer to a stress-free Hawaiian vacation. The innovative device is pre-loaded with Hawaiian maps to ensure you get to your destination faster. Imagine the ease of turn-by-turn directions leading you down lush rainforest roads to a stunning waterfall. It’s almost impossible in some places to find your way around the islands without the help of a GPS unit. Most of the Islands feature road names that are difficult to pronounce, making local directions and maps difficult to process. After all, many Hawaiian words are as difficult to read and interpret as any foreign language.
Both Dollar and Thrifty Car Rentals offer GPS upgrades to their rental cars. Simply request a unit be placed in your car and be treated to the convenience of widescreen display, touchscreen, and a sunlight-readable display. With all of that Hawaiian sunshine, you’ll appreciate the display can easily be read, even in bright, direct sunlight. When you’re ready to book your rental car, be sure to inquire about the GPS upgrade, it will save you time, and ensure your road trips are incredible.
