technically nothing exiting. it has sirfstarIII, heart rate, yadayadayada... it looks a bit different than the always same garmin 305s.

Can you enter an address and it will take you there, or must you go to a location and enter the position into the device? What does it cost? Are detailed maps for the USA available?

Thanks.

i posted above GPS just as an exotic exhibit.

this unit doesn't do anything beyond what a garmin305 does for you. it is similarly useless to guide you to your destination. i would not recommend to buy this unit right now. if you want your GPS to guide you with detailed maps then wait for the triton. if you want a workout log from your GPS wait for what garmin has up their sleeves. current shelf cleaning price cuts made rumors about new 205/305s more believable.

the MSRP for the unit posted above is $199 i think.

the PDF cntaining the manual is here:
