I am looking forward to seeing this item.
When you are getting a bit older the larger screen will be a benefit. I presume it will show the same data as 4.3" screen but just a bit bigger.

Hope it is not too expensive Question

Laughing Out Loud, I know the feeling, I only know where I'm going because of my Nuvi, I cant see the street signs even with my glasses on. so I count on my Nuvi to guide me. is that like driving blind?

Has anyone tried it yet? I have an 880 with the msndirect subscription. I dont want to give up the ability to send directions from BING.
