    Once you have had a chance to get to know the new 680 , give us a run down on the differences please , always handy to know what the newer gadgets are capable of for future reference .

    Not a huge difference from the 650t.
    Better gps reciever, faster and picks up more satellites for better accuracy.
    8 mp camera
    Upgraded 3d graphics.

    If you can get a 650 t at a runout price id grab it.

    My 680T kept turning itself off on rough roads i ended up trying 7 ear plugs behind the battery and it would still keep turning itself off , took it back to Johny appleseed and they replaced it on the spot , next time I'm looking for anything that JA sells i will be giving my money to them awesome service , also transferred all my tracks etc onto the new unit

    Yeah physical size of the unit is identicle.
    I would have hit them up for a new powered cradle if it was different.

    G'Day Al, yeah i have been fighting it for a while. One day they where good, the next goooneski's. Now i have glasses for reading and distance. Hard trying to used to riding in them, it is good being able to see the blades of grass though and not just a mat type thing with no definition.

    I tried the glasses under the goggles and the goggles pushes the glasses back onto my nose,
    the nose starts to hurt a fair bit after awhile.

    So i got these.
    After awhile i did not even know i was wearing them.
    Your riding will be easier too is what i found.

    ^^ I have been using the Goggleman lens ( 1.0 diopter ) and it makes reading the 650T so much easier.
