A new nuvi
is coming down the highway, and it means business. Navigational
business. It's the Garmin nuvi 1695, a connected GPS device that offers Bluetooth and GSM, much like the 1690
before it. In fact, it's not entirely clear what makes this different from the last year's 1690, but GPSTracklog
speculates this will offer Garmin's traffic trends feature also found in the 3700
, augmented by real-time updates from every other 1695 user similarly stuck in traffic. Seems like a good guess to us, but we're of course more curious about how much the thing will cost -- $500 for the 1690 when it was new was a bit of a bitter pill to swallow.
