Garmin Nuvi 660 Revealed
Garmin's previously released Nuvi 360 (pictured) is a fairly feature-rich car GPS navigation unit with a media player, compatibility with receivers that provide live traffic information, and Bluetooth for using the touchscreen to make and receive phone calls from a nearby cellphone. Its successor, the Nuvi 660, was informally announced when the FCC made test results available on its website today. The 660 is a modest but significant update to the 360 model that will use a widescreen 480x272 display (similar to that of the PSP) and contain an FM transmitter that can broadcast directions or other audio to the car stereo. It should ship by the end of September for an unspecified price.
