The feature set sounds intriguing. For Monday, it's the Gold Box deal of the day for $150. I won't link to it directly but any Amazon shopper should know how to find it.

 

It has:

  • Wi-Fi
  • Dual orientation screen (landscape / portrait)
  • 3 MP camera

and all the other usual Nuvi features, of course.

 

Anyone own one? Specifically, I'd like to know how well it work.

 

Edit : after some research, I see it is essentially a NuviPhone without the phone. Smaller screen (3.5") compared to the usual widescreen Nuvi models.

 

Edit 2 : Powered mount - nice. Poor battery life, poor speaker - not so nice.

 

Guess I'll pass. If it has a larger screen, I'd replace my 755T with this.

Holy smokes, old thread resurrection! Well, when Amazon dropped the price, I couldn't resist it and bought one for $89. Since then, they dropped it to $79, then $63 (another Gold Box special) and now it seems to have stopped carrying it. I saw 3rd party vendors selling it on Amazon, and Newegg had it yesterday for $89 I think.

 

For headphones adapter I got this one:

Bought on Amazon from 3rd party - eforcity. $1.21 shipped, works in stereo.
