several months ago i ask a garmin tech if there would ever be a upgrade for voice to text for the c530. he said no never because it was a matter of hardware. with the hacker conversation that would seem to not be true. i for one would be willing to pay (a reasonable amount) for a legal up grade from garmin. i write this in the hope that garmin keeps track of what is said on the poi factory, since it is the best gps program around.
They both have to be the same. I also (even though I said it myself) don't think that the term 'hack' is an appropriate term. There is no coding or unauthorized (custom) software. You simple put it in the 'blue screen' mode and then run the executable that garmin provides on their website. You rename a few files and bam there it is. Not that it really matters, just a thought.
hack or no hack it would be nice if i could buy a simple patch with garmins blessing lol
My gut feel is, now that the i series has been discontinued, the c530 may be next. It is the lowest in the pecking order of the lineup and has the old style huge case. That is OK with me. I love my c530 and will hand on to it for a while. However, I am sure that Garmin's thinking is if you want text to speech upgrade to a Nuvi.

The c3xx is lowest in the pecking order. The c5xx still provides better (antireflective) screen and better sound than the Nuvi.
Better sound, huh? I didn't realize that, interesting. Do they have duel speakers? I love the sound on the c530, however, sometimes I do wish that I had a headset jack.
i hope garman reads this stuff.lol
