Another which GPS question.???

We are writing this from the USA. Currently looking for a GPS to do the following.

World maps mainly good city maps. We rarely go to far off the beaten track but we like roads less travelled.

Wired or Blue Toothed to Intercom facility.

Need to hear the dulcet tones of Garmin Girl. Current intercom is a rider/pillion Autocom purchased 2008 with no Bluetooth. A Bluetooth dongle is available from Autocom, however.

Is there a GPS (Garmin) with an audio output jack other than the Zumo 550 and Zumo 660?

Do the Tom Tom and Magellan brands offer an audio output jack and are their maps as good?

A wired GPS to the Autocom is our preferred way to go but we think Bluetooth maybe our only option.

How hard would it be to fit an audio jack to a Nuvi?

"GPS Carol" is not retiring, just trying to make her life a little easier

Thankyou, Ken and Carol

********* Nuivi 765 already has an audio output socket....... It also has bluetooth ( whatever that is )

Just checked them out and they look good with plus and minuses but the audio jack is a huge plus. Checked a Comparision Chart with GPSCity and they did not have the 765T listed. Spent and hour checking what they had listed to ascertain if any had the audio jack but came up with zero. Looks like this one is a discontinued unit but this is not a problem.

Many thanks... K & C
