The Garmin 2390 turned up in Europe last week and not the device is getting ready for its US debut. The 2390 was spied crossing the FCC getting its approvals to come to drivers in the States. The good news if the device looks appealing to you, it has now turned up on the Garmin US site. The GPS device has some nice features like 3D maps and nuLink services with a menu that can be customized for a personalized experience.

The device uses NAVTEQ maps and you can see the traffic you are getting into thanks to the coolest of all the devices features - live traffic camera feeds. The 2390 will show all the feeds along your route and if traffic is too heavy, you can reroute on the fly. In Europe, the nuLink service is included with the purchase for a year. I would assume it would be the same in the US. After that one-year period, it's $60 for another year of service.

NuLink offers a bunch of other services too with local search, flight status details, and a currency converter. The device also learns traffic patterns in your area to help you get faster routes as you travel. The 2390 also has Bluetooth capability and lane assist with junction view. The 2390 can be pre-ordered in the UK for £229.99 and has a May 27 launch date, pricing in the US should be close.
