What's the story with this leaked GPS? Well, I'll tell you. Garmin is trying to keep pace with TomTom's widescreen models by adding this 4.3-inch, 480 by 272 pixel touchscreen to their latest navigator. Their last generation of Nuvis had players had MP3 support, which sounded really shit coming out of the little speakers in back. This one has an FM transmitter to route the tunes through your stereo. FYI, I'm still not using a GPS as my music player, kthx.


The GPS also has a high sensitivity SiRF star III receiver, built in traffic data, 700MB of internal memory for maps, a SD slot, a world currency converter, picture viewer, Bluetooth integration with a cellphone, and the usual Garmin interface that's sweet as a peanut butter, banana, and honey sandwich. Bye, I'm going to go eat now.

Wait, one more thing. The GPS guys at GPS Passion forums say that the bigger screen is going to make the Garmin slower to respond than older gen models. We shall see in September, when this thing hits for a little less than $1000.
