The remaining 535 MB memory is available to store additional detailed maps, MP3 and waypoint files or pictures.
This model also has a speech computer to announce the names of the roads, to speak words and phrases of the language guides and to read audible books. It plays sound either through the built-in loudspeakers or through your car sound equipment using the integrated mini FM transmitter. The Nüvi 865T is equipped with a BlueTooth interface to communicate with mobile phones which have the required communication capabilities in order to call car rental offices, hotels, restaurants etc. whose phone numbers are stored on the GPS with a single touch on the screen. It can also act as a hands-free extension set to the phones. In addition, the GPS has a slot for an optional microSD memory module to store additional maps or data and an USB connector to exchange data with a computer.
