Default Do any GPS units tell you the speed limit of the roads?

I have a Garmin Nuvi 350 and love it but was thinking how cool it would be if the gps unit told you the speed limit on the road as it's fairly often that I have to drive for a little while before I find a sign telling me. Someone we know claims their GPS will tell them when they are speeding but I am not sure if it tells them the speed limit or just tells them how fast they are going and they compare it to the signs.

Does any GPS out now tell you what the speed limits on the roads are?

I wish that GPS units could tell me what the legal speed limit for a road was and not what municipalities may have up on signage.

my Navigon 5100 tells me the speedlimits. It also warns me if I am over....

"CAUTION CAUTION OVER THE SPEEDLIMIT"

After about 5 minutes on my first highway trip, i disabled that function for good.
