The Overlander supports the Russian GLONASS and the European Galileo satellites

Very rugged all-terrain GPS device for navigation on the road and off-road, with 7 inch color display, GLONASS and Galileo support, integrated pitch and roll gauges, electronic 3D compass, barometrical altimeter, integrated base map, pre-installed street map of all of Europe, Middle East and Africa including Tracks4Africa, slot for µSD memory card, Blue Tooth, Wi-Fi and USB interface.

The GARMIN Overlander is equipped with an integrated base map, pre-installed street maps of all of Europe, Middle East and Africa including Tracks4Africa and supports autorouting. Campground directories of ACSI, Campercontact, Trailer's Park and iOverlander are also pre-installed. Use the Garmin Explorer app to download additional maps and satellite imageries and to synchronize waypoints, tracks and routes with your smartphone or computer. The Overlander is equipped with built-in pitch and roll gauges, an electronic 3D compass (3D = tilt-compensated compass which means the device doesn't have to be held level for accurate reading of the heading), a barometrical altimeter, 56.2 GB of memory - of which 35.6 GB are free - plus a slot for an µSD memory card. It can communicate via Blue Tooth and Wi-Fi, has an microUSB connector, a 3.5 mm audio connector, supports optional wireless backup cameras and can be paired with Explorer devices to send emergency messages. The Overlander provides detailed graphical and spoken directions and supports voice-activated navigation, which means you can operate the device with spoken commands. The built-in battery lasts for up to 3 hours, in cars it can be powered from a cigarette lighter. This device cannot only receive the signals of the U.S. GPS satellites, but also of the Russian GLONASS and the European Galileo satellites. This provides improved accuracy of the position indication, particularly under difficult conditions such as in cities with tall buildings, in narrow valleys, near steep cliffs and in dense forests. Android-based operating system, but does not support installation of additional apps from the Google Play store.
