Venice, Italy

 

After reading an article about Venice, Italy, I'm curious to know how the various GPSr's indicate a route through the City of Water. Do they display a map, nautical chart, or combination of the two, or do the GPSr's default to an 'on foot' mode avoiding the water entirely? From what I've read there are only two means of travel in Venice - 'by boat' or 'on foot'!

Anyone taking a trip to Venezia soon? smile

I wish I had my nuvi when I

I wish I had my nuvi when I was there last year. However this year, I diod have my 670. On one of my trips, I was in south central Denmark, headed to the island of Aero. My nuvi took me straight to the point where I took a ferry out to the island. Once on the ferry, I fired up the nuvi and it showed me the cross channel lane used by the ferry boat. And again, on he island, it performed flawlessly.

If you go to my website, I have several videos showing my nuvi on the Rhine river and again on the trip through Denmark. http://www.browneweb.com/Videos/Europe2007.htm

Good place to wander

Venice is one of the places one really doesn't need a GPS (once you found your hotel!). You are on an island and eventually, you will arrive at St Marks or someplace you will recognize. I really enjoyed our trips there just walking around and discovering interesting locations.

I was just wondering if your

I was just wondering if your Garmin Nuvi car lighter adaptor worked with both US and european lighter adaptors alike or were you using the battery. A question I always asked myself, if traveling to europe and took my 2720 would the lighter adaptor use the same voltage there as here and would it fit the same.

car battery

It should work on any car with a 12 volt system. European or American or Japenese or any other.

I went there when I was in the Navy on a train from Trieste, Italy and loved it! Did you you check out St. Mark's square and church?? Awesome history there plus I enjoyed watching the Venician glass blowers creating their artwork. Lots of memories come back on the word Venice.

Thank you, i figured the adaptor was universal but wasn't certain that rental cars in europe were 12 volt.
