Note that the feature set in the 25 differing Garmin "Nuvi" models is
They don't just add features as you move the model number sequence.
They add/drop various features such as Bluetooth cellphone interface,
MSN data, TMC traffic monitoring, MP3 playback, internal vs external
antennas, support for the "Fleet Management" serial I/O, wide vs
conventional aspect screens, etc in a seemly random manner as you move
up the model number chain.
check a few models and then hit the COMPARE button. Differences
between the models in the feature grid are rows highlighted in brown.
then check the models that support the "Fleet Management" serial
