Re: New Garmin City Navigator v7 available

Just a note:
I bought my StreetPilot 2610 from "GPS Central, Calgary", Canadian distributor of Garmin.  The best price, the fastest service (less than 24 hrs.) and the best service I ever had from any company.  I had some problem with the sound card, they gave me a new unit, no questions asked.
It worth to check prices, shipment and availability with them before buying a GPS unit and/or related products.

  Hello Folks,

  Garmin has just released version 7 of City Navigator North America data and 
  software for Garmin GPSes. Details below, as per Garmin's notice. If anyone 
  gets this, and can provide a more detailed report on the enhancements to 
  Canadian data (a particular sore point, thanks to Her Majesty's historic 
  lack of aggressive activity in this area), please post to the list.
