Wow, maybe an indication they are going to drop some of the other ranges with larger screens, 8" in my car would pretty much block my view Laughing

The only small issue I have with my 7" DS61 is that unclipping it means attacking the plastic bit from the sides as there is no room underneath.

I'm using a dashboard disc and standard suction mount.

Yes, an 8" screen on the dash would make me look like Chad

The 8" Garmin Drive unit on the "En-gb" website is advertising either Smartlink or Traffic via cable !

Have Garmin introduced a new TA cable service ?
