Boxing Clever – The new Garmin GVN 52

Garmin International announces the launch of the GVN 52, an all new concept in GPS Navigation. Featuring Garmin’s robust GPS hardware and familiar StreetPilot user interface, this ‘black box’ is designed to be integrated into built-in or installed mobile audio/video entertainment systems.

The GVN 52 enables users to turn their entertainment units into powerful navigation systems, making it possible to look up a specific address or plan a route with points of interest such as restaurants, hotels, petrol stations or shops, while viewing their exact location on an electronic moving map.

Unique voice prompt capability can be amplified through a car’s speaker system, giving clear, turn-by-turn voice cues identifying streets by name and showing map graphics on the system’s integrated video display.

This 12cm by 12cm ‘black box’ is only 2.7cm thick and weighs just 170g. It is easy to install, and fits under a car seat using the included mounting hardware. The unit comes preloaded with certain maps, and has an SD card slot so that additional mapping and updates can be easily installed.

This product will only be available at selected fitment centres throughout South Africa. Visit to find a centre near you.
