Hands-on with Garmin's nu nüvi line of GPS gear

A few days ago you guys got the preview of Garmin’s nuvis. Well, I’d like to confirm that they are as slim and featureless as they seem in the heavily-optimized press shots they released. I fiddled around with them for a bit; the touchscreen is responsive but doesn’t really jump, and the display is nice and bright. The 5000 was great and felt really meaty. Garmin had crippled the things for display, and I couldn’t get as much out of them as I’d like to have, but it was enough to tell that these things are great little devices. Bigger pictures if you want em, click below.
