Yeah, it does look neat. I wonder if Garmin does their regular gouge for maps, or if this one is fairly complete...

This is a VERY similar device to the TomTom that we talked about earlier (http://www.nissanmurano.org/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=3300&highlight=tomtom).

I wonder when Garmin will actually release this product, and when it will be available? I really liked the touch-screen interface of the TomTom, but I decided against it for other reasons (see other thread). Perhaps the Garmin will be a better version? Might have to try it out if it is available in time for me....

Yes, I did see it on the Internet. Looks like TomTom. Ihope it will have Garmin quality. GPS City takes preorders now. Apparently it will ship in March 24.

That's not too far off.

It comes with the maps. Map updates are ususally annually and run about $75. I tend to update every other year and consider the price reasonable.

This unit looks kind of small

I like the design but at almost $1000 the Magellan Roadmate and Garmin 2600's look alot better.

Your thoughts???

According to the Garmind side they 320 is $729... if I recall. They have a 330 that is closer toe $800 or $900.

I wish these would come down in price... a fair price would be in the $300-400 range. Dontchathink?

Screen Sizes (taken directly from manufacturer sites):

Garmin C330: 2.8” W x 2.1” H (5.88 square inches)
Garmin 2620: 3.3" W x 1.7" H (5.61 square inches)
Magellan Roadmate 700: 2.25" x 3.0" (6.75 square inches)

The overall unit of the C330, of course, is smaller, but that's because all the controls are on-screen rather than separate.

Hmmm... This actually makes me want to check out the Magellan a bit more. I was kind of set on Garmin, but that's a significant increase in screen real estate....

One more comment on price. Remember that Garmin's site is SUGGESTED RETAIL. You should be able to find it a lot cheaper than that once it's out in stores.

For example, the Garmin 2620 is listed on the Garmin site as having a suggested price of $1283.32. Newegg.com currently has it available for $809.99, which is 63% cheaper. If you look as just their suggested retail price, the C330 is already significantly cheaper than the 2620, so once they are in stores it should be cheaper still.
