Many of you probably know this, but for those that don't -
The Garmin 196 can now have the software updated to v 4.1
which then allows you to upgrade to the latest database ($35.00) which then allows you to add the same terrain avoidance ($35.00) as the new 296.
So for $70.00 your 196 runs the same software as the 296 - just not in colour!

Unfortunately the obstacle database stops at the US border and I'm in Canada. It would be nice to have if it covered this area
