Avis Introduces New Where2 GPS System

Avis Rent A Car recently unveiled a new version of Where2, the company's fully portable Global Positioning System (GPS) navigation device.

The new, slimmer unit features a larger, high-brightness display screen, turn-by-turn directions spoken in more than 40 languages and added services such as traffic alerts, weather reports, stock and news updates, Amber Alerts and movie listings provided by MSN Direct.

Avis's Where2 units will continue be manufactured by Garmin, now based on the nuvi 780 model.

The new Where2 system continues to offer Avis customers an array of navigation features including a simple user interface, notification of upcoming traffic snarls/construction tie-ups and recommended alternate routes, Bluetooth hands-free calling capability, three-dimensional maps and MP3 audio playback capability.

The new Where2 devices will be available beginning in March. Pricing is $11.95 per day or $49.75 per week. Avis customers can reserve a unit at avis.com, by calling 1-800-331-1212 or by contacting a local travel professional.
