If you're not keen on squinting at a little display to view maps and driving directions, then feast your eyes on the Garmin Nuvi 5000. Unlike most of today's portable navigation systems, which have 3.5-inch or 4.3-inch displays, the Nuvi boasts a 5.2-inch touch screen with a 800x480 pixel resolution and is designed for RVs and trucks. It's well-stocked in the features department as well with preloaded maps of North America, text-to-speech functionality, integrated Bluetooth, multimedia capabilities, and compatibility with MSN Direct for real-time traffic, weather, and more. There's even a composite video input to connect a rearview camera to see what's behind your vehicle before backing up. The Garmin Nuvi 5000 is expected to ship sometime in February and has a price tag of $857.13.
