new Garmins..with traffic updates on screen :)
 
Go Here. The new qwest 2 has trhe entire city select loaded, and the new streetpilot has ability to display congested roads via traffic signals insome cities.

But where is the CD/DVD ?

Gawsh, what a disappointment. I was hoping for a bigger screen, more hard buttons, XM radio and XM weather capability. 2720s an improvement, but barely so. Garmin, your going to have to do better.

The new GPSMap 396 has XM satellite weather, but it's $2700.

I had hoped the Quest 2 would have SD expansion instead of just 140MB of built-in memory. Bah!

I took it as having all of City Select North America v7 loaded and 140 MB left over for other maps

ie has 2 GB intermal memory and CSNA v7 is approx 1860 MB

That would be fine if I could get to the 2GB of internal mem. My experience with their CitySelect maps is that they don't cover dirt roads and county highways very well at all... which is really what I'm looking for. Maybe this "CitySelect NT" is better?

Well, since the City Selct maps are completely loaded. That 140 meg would leave plenty of room for R&R or the Topo maps which do have dirt roads.
