Garmin introduces at the CES 2008 the nüvi 260W GPS unit.

The new feature in the wide-screen nuvi 260W is that the nüvi 260W automatically calls out street names (saying “turn right on Main Street” instead of “turn right in 200 feet.”).
The nüvi 260W also sports a sunlight-readable 4.3-inch touchscreen display, built-in picture viewer, calculator, currency converter, unit converter, world clock, and Garmin Lock.

Garmin Lock is a patent pending theft prevention system that disables the unit from performing any functions until the user types in a specific 4-digit PIN or takes the unit to a predetermined secure location.

The Garmin nuvi 260W has an MSRP of $428.56 and will ship in the 1st Quarter of 2008.
