Garmin Nuvi 670
Looks like Garmin has a new Nuvi coming to a car near you, the Garmin Nuvi 670. Like the other siblings in the 600 series the 670 will be a widescreen model. We finally know some more about the 670. One of the things that will make this GPS great out of the box is that it comes with preloaded maps of North America and Europe. This is a feature many potential Nuvi customers have been asking for.
More of the “general” details, the Garmin Nuvi 670 will come with a nice widescreen, text-to-speech, an FM transmitter, an integrated traffic receiver, as well as Bluetooth hands free calling.
Like many of the other Nuvi devices the 670 offers the ability to play MP3 music files and has a JPEG picture viewer. The music (and other audible directions) can be played via the FM transmitter over your car stereo… Let’s hope this works a little better than the FM transmitter on the Nuvi 660, but my suspicion is that this is just a 660 with the additional European maps.
Finally the Nuvi 670 has an integrated traffic receiver which comes with a 3 month subscription to the Total Traffic Network. After the trial period a subscription costs $60 for 12 months of service.
Bluetooth is also featured on the Nuvi 760 allowing you to connect wirelessly to a compatible phone for hands free calling and to dial POIs.
The Garmin Nuvi 670 should be available in February.
