  • Fancy new brushed metal case
  • 5-inch glass touchscreen display
  • Updated map layouts for improved readability
  • Garmin's new "Real Directions" -- turns are announced in plain natural English (ie "turn left at the traffic light", or "turn right after the Starbucks")
  • HD Digital Traffic
  • 3D buildings
  • Voice Command

As with other Garmin models, the "Prestige" model includes all the above features, as well as lifetime traffic and map updates.

No word on pricing yet, but all three models will be available for purchase within the next 3 months.
