Garmin may have woken up and smelled the ‘green’ coffee.  Their nuvi 1300 GPS sports the usual GPS features – 4.3-inch touchscreen, text to speech, etc – but it also let’s you plan the most fuel efficient trip, something they’re calling ecoRoute.  For a an added cost, about $10 or so, city dwellers and tourists can download CityXplorer maps, which provide subway maps, street routes and other public transportation info.

The Garmin nuvi 1300 will hit next quarter for $250.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
