Note:  Screen images below are 320x240pixels and are NOT to scale.  Likely the images are LARGER on your computer's screen than the actual images on the c320/c330 units.

One caveat.  The above maps and displays are displays downloaded directly from the c320 unit used in our evaluation.  However, when viewed in sunlight on a clear day with the c320 GPS attached to your windshield,  the apparent contrast makes the display wash out such that the displayed roads OTHER THAN the red line showing your route can be difficult or impossible to see.  This even at 100% brightness.  The StreetPilot 2610/2620 screens are much more readable in sunlight than are the c320/c330 screens.  Part of this results from Garmin's decision to "de-emphasize" all roads except the route you are on by reducing the brightness and contrast of "other" roads when you are executing a route.  Things are not any better when you are NOT routing as then the major roads are bright and high contrast and the secondary roads are dimmer with low contrast and tend to blend into the background.  

Joe's Opinion: We think that it is valuable to be able to see crossroads, nearby roads, and all roads in (for example) a cloverleaf interchange.  This gives us more information as to the nature of our surroundings and the layout of complex turns.  We are not in favor of this "de-emphasis" of "other" roads beyond the route you are traveling. Not being able to know details of a complex road situation caused us to make wrong choices in several complex interchanges.  This has not happened to us using the SP2610/2620 units.
