Garmin introduces a new GPS device series with a large screen at the CES 2008. The new Garmin nüvi 5000 boasts a 5.2 inch screen.

Besides navigation the Garmin nuvi 5000 features an internal MP3 player, audio book player and games. The built-in MP3 player lets you browse music by artist, album, song, or genre. Music can be loaded onto an SD card. The nüvi 5000 is also compatible with audible.com, a subscription based audio book service. A handful of games are preloaded on the nüvi to help passengers pass the time. All music or speech files can be emitted over the vehicle’s existing speakers, through the nüvi’s built-in FM wireless transmitter or via the unit’s 3.5mm stereo output jack. The entertainment audio is muted when navigation instructions are given.
Customers also have the opportunity to receive dynamic content from either MSN Direct (U.S. only) or FM TMC (Traffic Message Channel) traffic receiver.

The Garmin nüvi 5000 is expected to be available in North America in February for a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $799.99. It will be available in Europe in the second quarter of 2008.
