The Groundspeak forums were all a-twitter about the possibilities of a new model called the Colorado.

It’s rumored to have all the goodies of the current Garmin line – altimeter, electronic compass, SiRFSTARIII chipset, etc. But this bad boy’s also supposed to showcase a giant, high-color display, a temperature sensor, wireless communication between devices, and – most awesomely – the ability to display aerial photos and shaded topographical maps.

It’s expected to hit stores in Spring ’08, and retail for around $500. If that’s not true, then hopefully they’ll at least start offering some good rebates on the excellent GPSMap 60CSx.
