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
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
