A new member of the Garmin family is set to appear within days. The nuvi 295 is quite a change from previous nuvi models. Set to include automatic portrait or landscape view, a 3mp geo-tagged camera, audio out and yes, wi-fi hotspot connectivity. That allows for an HTML web browser, email, viewing attachments that include PDF and JPEGS along with Powerpoint, Word and Excel files. The wi-fi enabled 295 also offers Google Local Search with customer ratings. No traffic model is included yet, but I'm sure it will be announced soon enough. Looks like a good match for those wanting to avoid recurring data charges, but like the form-factor of the smartphones. At just $280, the price is right too. Available starting May 16th.
