The big super bowl Garmin announcement came out early. The nuvifone cellphone.

Now this is seriously cool! It kind of looks a bit like my Palm Pilot but with the phone feature has a bit of the iPhone look. All bundled on a GPS platform.

Who'd have thunk that the next serious gadget to battle the iPhone would come from a GPS manufacturer?

I do see one potential problem that I didn't like about the Nuvi. The navigation is in Landscape mode. I'd much rather be able to hold my GPS vertically in my hand when I'm beating bush.

I did see this in the description that I found neat. This has some serious potential for GeoGames. Much like what is already in the forums, but up a notch.

The built-in camera allows individuals to take a picture that will automatically be tagged with the exact latitude and longitude reference of where the image was taken. The user may then save the image so they can navigate back to the location, or email the image to a recipient who can navigate directly to the location.
