They've released the GPSMAP 696.

On a very basic level, it's like a cross between a 496, an AvMap EKP-IV and a G1000. It has generally the same displays as the 496, has the screen size of the EKP-IV and has many of the control features of a G1000, such as a little joystick on the side. It looks pretty cool. I may not get an EKP-IV now.

Sporty's has it for $3,295 +$1 shipping.
