Features:

  • Full Map Coverage
    View comprehensive pre-loaded maps of the U.S and Canada, including Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Choose from multiple map display modes so you always get a clear view of the road ahead. In arrow mode, you’ll be presented with easy-to-read arrows, each time a turn lies ahead. In map mode, get a full-screen map of the area.
  • Go To… Your Destination
    Press “Go To” to begin your journey. An intuitive interface and smart key filtering features help you quickly narrow down and lockdown your destination.
  • Any Place, Any Time.
    Can’t figure out where to go? With over 6 million points of interest available as “Places” to go, you can find your next destination in no time. There are multiple ways to narrow down your locations, from those that are near you, within your city, or along your route – plenty of options to find your next destination. You can choose to turn on selectable map icons, which will show you places by type – such as restaurants, airports, attractions, gas stations...you pick the place!
  • Map It!
    Get a more realistic perspective by viewing streets from a 3-dimensional view. With multiple map orientation views, you can select from 3D, North-Up, and Heading-Up, whichever view works best for you. Plus, you can toggle from Arrow mode to Map Mode, whether you simply prefer three successive arrow maneuvers all the way to your destination, or a full-screen map of the area. It’s up to you.
  • Need a Guide?
    Turn up the volume and let K3 lead the way with turn-by-turn voice directions that speak street names (example: “Turn Left on Main Street”) If you’re more of a visual person, view turn-by-turn guidance arrows right from the screen to anticipate the maneuvers ahead.
  • Advanced Performance
    Don’t fall behind with older, slower navigation systems. The PND-K3’s built-in speedy processor means faster route calculations, search results, map loading and zooming. Fast GPS reception lets you get on the road faster Three Advanced positioning sensors yield more accurate vehicle position so your navigation can pinpoint where you are and get you exactly where you want to go, even when driving through tunnels and around tall buildings.
  • Personalization
    • Your Color
      Customize your settings and select from eight different menu and map color schemes. It’s OK to feel aqua one day and ruby the next!
    • Your Places Search places near you, near your destination, within your city, or better yet, only places located along your route! Let PND-K3 narrow down your selections to places that are most convenient for you.
    • Your Home
      Saving your home location is a snap! A convenient home button is always accessible from the main menu, so you can route yourself back home no matter where you are.
    • Your History
      Your recent destinations are automatically saved under your “History”. Pull up your “History” list to quickly go to your previous destinations.
    • Your Settings
      View only what you want to see on your maps, by turning map icons on/off. If all you want to see are restaurants, turn the restaurant icon on. You can also adjust the volume of the voice guidance prompts or even turn it off if you prefer just visual guidance.
    • Your Language
      The PND-K3 is multi-lingual. Select your preferred language. Choose from English, Spanish, and French. You can even set the units of measure to miles or kilometers.
    • Your Address Book
      Save locations you frequently visit in your own address book. You can even select from a variety of icons to associate each address entry.
    • Your Music
      For those who can’t live without it, now you’ve got music, too! You can load an SD card (sold separately) with all your favorite music and stick it in the available slot on the PND-K3. You can view your music info and skip to the tracks you like. Now you know where you’re going and you’ve got additional music to keep you company.
    • Your Dashboard
      View info details like the average speed and driving time from your personal dashboard. You can always check on your GPS status right from your unit, so you know exactly how your GPS Coverage is doing based upon where you are at.
  • Bluetooth
    • Look Ma, No Hands!
      Now you can get hands-free phone conversations set up in your car. Just sync up your Bluetooth compatible cell phone to the PND-K3 and you’re dialed in.
    • Need to Make a Call?
      You can access your phone functions right from the main menu. Click to open your Phonebook and find all your stored contacts from your phone, or use the 12-key dial pad for new numbers. Use call logs to access lists of recently Dialed Calls, Missed Calls, or Received Calls.
    • Answer your Calls
      When your cell phone is actively paired with the PND-K3, a pop-up window appears when an incoming call comes in. The caller ID number, if available, is displayed right from the PND-K3 display. You can answer or ignore calls as you wish.
    • It’s Automatic!
      A few automatic functions might save you some time. Turn Auto Connect on to automatically connect to the last connected phone in your vehicle. Turn Auto Answer on to automatically answer all incoming calls for you after the first ring.

      Comments about Alpine Portable Navigation System:

      Thanks to my new Alpine I did not miss the turn in Austin that I have missed on many trips to visit my son. I am now a "senior" driver and travel extensively and the ease of setting the system up amazed me. I was sure I would have to wait and have my son do it, but had it up and ready to go in matter of minutes. The screen is great, (I can actually see it!) directions given in ample time and I don't know how I did without it for so long!! Thanks for an excellent product. My sons have different brands and are ready to trade theirs in for an Alpine!!

        Comments about Alpine Portable Navigation System:

        It keeps locking/freezing up. It is good when it is working but not always accurate with locations. It will get you close, or sometimes it dosent have somethings like the 5 year old Wal Mart 5 miles, maybe it needs updated.
