CES 2007: Garmin Nuvi 680 Links Up With MSN Direct

Seems like just yesterday we heard about the Garmin Nuvi 670, and now the company will reveal the Nuvi 680 GPS navigator at CES 2007. It keeps the 4.3-inch touchscreen of its predecessor but now adds the handy ability to receive dynamic content from MSN Direct, something the Nuvi 670 couldn't do yet (contrary to our earlier report).

In addition to giving you real-time traffic reports, that MSN Direct connection lets you call up gas prices, weather conditions and even movie times. Along for the ride is Garmin's user-friendly interface and a "3- to 7-hour" battery life. Garmin will ship the Nuvi 680 sometime in the first quarter of this year for just under $1000.
