New Garmin GPS

I think I am going to hold out for the Garmin GPSMAP 640. It's coming in the first quarter of 2009, just in time for my birthday (that's a hint, E).

The 640 has a 4.5 x 2.7 screen with 800 x 480 pixel resolution. (Heck, I have a still-running laptop with worse resolution.) Compare and contrast to my current 276, which has a 3.0 x 2.2 screen at 480 x 320.

The newly announced unit also has XM radio and weather availability.
