This looks cool! To me this looks like a much needed upgrade in visibility and function that you'd expect from Garmin. The display looks bigger and brighter and more interactive. It seems easier now to share tracks either wirelessly between devices like before but also with an app on your phone. Lots of cool new features too like satellite imagery, 4x4 trails, public lands boundaries, real time gas prices and traffic updates. $499.99. Who wants to test one?
