  • fixed radar point locations in the UK, France, Germany, and many other European countries.
  • SmartDetour re-routing built-in.
  • QuickSpell for quickly searching through destination addresses.
  • Multi-destination routing.
  • Multimedia including MP3/WMA and digital photo access via SD cards.
  • Maps of 27 countries on 4GB hard drive.
  • Weighs 245g
  • 1 million downloadable customised points of interest

Additionally the 6000T has built-in Bluetooth allowing drivers to make calls using the integrated speaker and microphone.

The 6000T costs €699 and the 3050T costs €599
