Containing over 1.22 million POIs these new maps will help travelers search for restaurants, banks, hotels and more.
Garmin has integrated Cyrillic and transliterated Russian text into their new microSD/SD card of City Navigator Russia NT maps, so users can look up road names, POIs and addresses in Russia's native language.
