Take a look at the newMERIDIAN COLOR GPSR and see how cool this new unit is. The first hand held gps unit with a color screen.

Seems to be the same as the Meridian gold in the options department and memory upgrades, but the color screen sure makes it a whole lot more fun!   :)

But is it really worth twice the cost?   ???

I'll let you know soon enough. In any event, it's purely eye candy as it does no more than the basic Meridian Gold. The price you pay for color will have to be based on the single user and what he/she feels it is worth. ;)

Twice the cost? It lists for only $100 more than the Platinum's $399 list price. It'll be interesting to see how low the street price will be, once it is released to general distribution.

I only paid $249 plus a $50 rebate for my Platinum, total paid $200.  I did get Topo so the price was around $300.

I just picked one up on Saturday.  $389. (Rebate on the plat expired 12/31 I guess...)

What the heck... about an extra $140 for the color.

Added some software, picked up a 128Meg SD card for $44...

Pretty nice!

PS Color has an external antenna... I thought that would be handy for vehicle use perhaps...
