Get ready to meet the perfect travel companion, the nüvi 295W. We've added some features to the Garmin GPS navigator you already know and love so that it gives road-warriors even more helpful tools. The top new features are Wi-Fi, a 3 MP camera that geotags images so you can navigate back to them, a full web browser and email client, and dual-orientation screen that lets you navigate in either portrait or landscape

6 months? By then the new 3xxx series would be out and I doubt anybody, after seeing the new iPhone-like new Nuvi, would want the 295W anymore. :mrgreen:

GPS: Garmin Nuvi 3760T
I was in the market for the Nuvi 3790T, but ended up purchasing the Nuvi 295W instead. I have no regrets! I love it and it meets all my expectations. Since I ride my motorcycle more so than my car, I wanted something that can be compatible with my tank bag and it's cell phone pocket. The portrait mode of the 295W allows me to put it in the clear plastic pocket. I have different helmets and one set of wired helmet speakers. With a 3.5 mm to 2.5 mm adapter, I'm able to hear directions in my helmet without the need of Bluetooth. Also, the built-in camera makes me carry one less item on a motorcycle ride. The quality is good enough for me when I ride, since all I take is landscape and landmark pictures.

I'm on my way to Philippines and Malaysia (Sepang for MotoGP) and successfuly loaded the maps on the 295W [thanks to the help of this forum]. The 295W has proven to be a great GPS for the motorcyclist in me, and when I get to Asia, I'll be able to test it out while walking and exploring. The use in portrait mode will make it look like I'm looking at a cell phone than an actual GPS navigator, which (I hope) won't say "tourist".

Importantly, compared to the 3790T, the Nuvi 295W was a few hundred dollars cheaper. The 295W may not have all the features as the 3790T, but the 295W has enough of the ones that I wanted at a good price.
