The 640 duplicates all of the features of the 478 except the batteries, I think. $1200 RETAIL.

The 640 also does not have the fishfinder capability from what I read.

I was wrong. it has a 9 hour rechargeable lithium-ion battery. And it will fit in a jacket pocket, unlike the 478.

If I didn't already have eight Garmin GPSs....
