Garmin nuvi 670 in Works

The navigation expert Garmin plans to introduce a rare take on the traditional information provided by GPS units, according to the CES 2007 honorees list. Unlike most receivers, which either display only pre-recorded map information or else must link to a satellite radio service, the upcoming nuvi 670 (pictured) will integrate with Microsoft's MSN Direct to provide real-time information relevant to the driver's location. In addition to essential services like traffic and weather conditions, the nuvi 670 can also overlay fuel prices, movie showtimes, and other data for nearby points of interest. The company plans to officially unveil details of its new receiver at the CES show in January.
