Hi
I would like to start this thread on the features I would like
to see in a Garmin product.. I have been using the GPS 276C for
many years now, along with 60CX, Etrex etc..

In my case I am talking about the Original Gps navigation
devices like the 276C where they are portable can float
on water has a MARK button etc.. However the general
idea can also apply to the Gps Enabled MAPS like the
Nuvi series.

Anyway I would like to start by saying that I would like
my 276C to have a MARK button that also allows me to
speak something about the waypoint and store that
on SD card.. Many times, I find I have so many waypoints
but no idea why I marked them..

Anyway feauture I would like to see is phone integration
whereby SMS can be used by the unit to forward waypoints
to a list of telephone numbers...

I would also like the units to have the Real Time Clock
batteries user servicable so that we dont have
to send the units back to Garmin for repair.

Right now, I have 2 276C units .. One has a Failed internal battery
and the other one eventhough the battery is ok keeps losing
the last GPS data it got and goes into autolocate mode all the time.

For me I like gps with buttons and a large screen
with a battery so that you can remove it.

The newer Nuvis has a feature "Travel Guide". Here you have POIs marked with pictures / descriptions etc.. and you can set the "Tour Guide" to Auto Play / Prompt when you are near the POI.

Nuvi 500 and 800 has user replaceable batteries.

and the other one eventhough the battery is ok keeps losing
the last GPS data it got and goes into autolocate mode all the time.
