Strada CN-GP50N GPS navigation from Panasonic: "

Strada CN-GP50N

Panasonic introduced a new GPS navigation system at IFA 2007 for the European market called Strada CN-GP50N. The device has a huge screen and a good price at 400€.

As opposed to its strong competition in the field, such as TomTom and Garmin, Panasonic decided to focus its experience on the video and audio features of CN-GP50N which made this device more of an entertainment center rather than just plain old GPS navigation.

The display on CN-GP50N measures 5″ - leaving their competition 0.7″ behind - hoping to attract consumers who are looking into watching videos in their vehicle.

Panasonic incorporates maps of 37 European countries, including 1.3 million points of interest and even 3D city maps of certain locations and landmarks. For upgrades to the maps Strada CN-GP50N supports SD cards, but it can also be connected to using the USB port on the device.

Some other high-end features of the device also include Smart Assist which comes into to play GPS signals are weak, the bluetooth connectivity for hands free calling, and the ability to enter destination address by voice commands.

Just like most other high end GPS navigators Strada CN-GP50N also has the ability to download radar and speed camera warnings off of Panasonic’s website and warn the drive when approaching these locations…

Garmin Nuvi 200W/250W Arrives for Review: "


The Garmin Nuvi 200W/250W has arrived for review at, and we???re pretty happy to check out the latest unit from Garmin to hit the stores. The Nuvi 200W/250W were announced back in June just as the Summer driving season was beginning. I would expect that the Nuvi 200W/250W will start gathering steam right before the Holidays when the next wave of GPS buying takes place.

The Nuvi 200W/250W extends the line of Nuvi 200 series units that are designed to be easy to use and easier on the wallet. The Nuvi 200 and Nuvi 250 standard screen models are starting to really settle in and take up their place among the entry-level units a few months after introduction, and are really starting to create a buzz. A year ago, who would have thought that you could have gotten a flat model Garmin for under $300 with maps pre-loaded and ready to go? You can with the Garmin Nuvi 200 standard screen right now for less than $300.

The Nuvi 200W and Nuvi 250W are well poised to offer widescreen usability at the entry-level end of the market, while bringing the confidence of the Garmin interface to the marketplace. The Nuvi 200W and Nuvi 250W are based on their standard screen siblings as far as design cues and interface go. The same thin design elements with slate gray mark the new widescreen models, with the same slider switch.

Over the coming weeks, we???ll check the Nuvi 200W/250W out to see what it is made of and let you know our thoughts.

What???s the Difference between the Nuvi 200W vs. the Nuvi 250W?
Maps; that???s it. The Nuvi 200W has all the features of the Nuvi 250W.
  • Nuvi 200W - Maps of continental U.S., Hawaii, and Puerto Rico
  • Nuvi 250W - Maps of U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico

    What???s in the Nuvi 200W/250W box?

  • Nuvi 200W or 250W GPS Navigation Unit
  • Suction cup Mount with cam lever action
  • Car Power Plug ??? 12V
  • Adhesive Dash disk
  • Set-up and Go guide

    garmin nuvi 760

    The second addition to the new nuvi 700 series is garmin nuvi 760. This one also has a wide 4.3″ screen and the new feature to help you find your car:

    …And to help drivers find their car in an unfamiliar spot or crowded parking lot, nuvis 760 automatically marks the position in which it was last removed from the windshield mount

    If you have a compatible bluetooth phone nuvi 760 will happily pair with it and help you locate - say a restaurant - , find it’s phone number, and even call to make reservations. Of course you’ll still have to do the talking when the call gets through.

    Nuvi 760 also has a built-in FM transmitter to wirelessly transmit turn-by-turn directions and street names, MP3s and audio books through your car’s streo and also has Garmin’s FM traffic receiver to help you stay out of traffic jams. However all you’ll get free is only 3 months to this service, and you’ll have pay for subscription from there on. nuvi 760 also offers customizable maps to let you add speed camera zones and such.

    Nuvi 760 will come preinstalled with maps of U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico and will cost you a whopping $800!

    garmin nuvi 750


    As we expected Garmin just announced 3 new wide screen models from the 700 series. First one of these is the nuvi 750. The new nuvi’s have a few interesting features: One of these is supposedly to help you locate your car by automatically marking the position in which they were last removed from the windshield mount. I guess it could work.

    nuvi 750 is the simplest model from the 700 series but even this one features an FM transmitter to broadcast the voice guidance through your car speakers. Other features of 750 include a 4.3″ display at 480x272 resolution, six million points of interests (POIs), built-in picture viewer, calculator, currency converter, unit converter and world clock. Nuvi 750 will not have bluetooth connectivity.

    nuvi 750 comes preloaded with highly detailed City Navigator NT road maps for the entire United States, Canada and Puerto Rico and you can add your own POI’s such as speed cameras and school zones as you see them.

    nuvi 750 will be available in September 2007 for $600.

    TomTom GO 920 and GO 920T

    TomTom GO 920 and GO 920T: "


    TomTom has announced their TomTom GO 920 and the TomTom GO 920T, the new top of the line device that offers a nice collection of features and with the GO 920T, the unit offers TMC traffic included with the unit. TomTom has clearly jumped into the TMC traffic pool, and in my conversation with Jocelyn Vigreux, President of TomTom USA this week about the TomTom 920T and the new TomTom ONE 3rd edition, he said that the TMC traffic will offer access to the same high quality traffic feeds for users who don't have access to a compatible phone that was required for access to previous traffic data through the TomTom PLUS services.

    The TomTom GO 920 and 920T will also include what’s called Enhanced Positioning Technology that will help to maintain your position when you have lost signal, in such situations as going under tunnels. Not sure if this is accelerometer technology, or not, but this capability is certainly something that is available and needed for people who do a lot of city driving.

    The GO 920 and 920T also offer a 5 hour LiIon battery, a remote control, MapShare capability to keep your maps updated, Bluetooth and Maps of USA and Europe.

    The units are expected in the fourth quarter; which is code for 'Will be on the shelves for the holidays.'

    More news from the press release after the jump...
    TomTom, the world’s largest portable navigation solutions provider, today reveals its new flagship model, the TomTom GO 920 T. It comes preinstalled with complete maps of Europe* and USA & Canada on the 4 GB internal memory. The GO 920 T includes the new Enhanced Positioning Technology which results in a more continuous navigation experience. An RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver to receive up-to-date traffic information is included in the box. The TomTom GO 920 T features a slim high quality design with soft-touch finish, and a new metallic color scheme.

    ‘The new flagship TomTom GO 920 T offers the best in satellite navigation,’ says Harold Goddijn, chief executive officer at TomTom. ‘Pre-installed maps of multiple continents combined with innovative technologies such as the new Enhanced Positioning Technology, TomTom Map Share and plug & play traffic information offer outstanding quality and performance. The TomTom GO 920 T is the most advanced navigation solution on the market today.’

    Most complete set of maps

    The new TomTom GO 920 T offers a seamless map of 41 countries in both Western and Central Europe and the most-up-to-date maps of USA and Canada preinstalled on the 4 GB internal memory of the device. This makes the TomTom GO 920 T the personal navigation device with the most complete set of pre-installed maps available in TomTom’s entire navigation solution portfolio.

    Best navigation with Enhanced Positioning Technology
    TomTom’s new Enhanced Positioning Technology uses movement and gravity sensors to calculate drivers’ positions when GPS signals are unavailable.

    TomTom GO 920 T users will have a much more continuous navigation experience as the Enhanced Positioning Technology ensures the device continues to navigate to its destination, even in circumstances where there may not be a direct line-of-sight connection to a satellite. For example, when driving in a city with tall buildings, underpasses or bridges.

    In addition, the TomTom GO 920 T comes with the latest version of TomTom’s award winning software and all the features of the current TomTom GO 720 and TomTom GO 520. This includes TomTom Map Share™ Technology to make easy changes to the map and to share map corrections with other TomTom customers so that users always have the most up-to-date maps available.


    An RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver to receive up-to-date traffic information is also included in the box.

    Remote control

    The TomTom GO 920 T comes with an improved Bluetooth™ remote control that is the same color as the device. This way drivers can operate their device safely from anywhere in the car without having to reach to touch the screen.

    Extensive set of features

    TomTom GO 920 T replaces the current TomTom GO 910 and offers the best in navigation and performance. On top of all new and exclusive features that the TomTom GO 920 T includes, the model comes preinstalled with the latest navigation software and features, such as:

  • Large 4.3 inch touch screen with high quality graphics, an intuitive user interface and building footprints for a better overview of drivers’ surroundings;
  • TomTom Map Share™ Technology: allowing users to instantly correct maps, share changes with other users, and benefit from improvements made by other users;
  • TomTom RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver to give users the most-up-to-date traffic information (RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver comes in the box)
  • Speech recognition: voice address input to easily direct drivers to millions of cities and street names;
  • Enhanced hands-free kit with high quality sound system to allow drivers to keep their eyes firmly on the road whilst making phone calls in the car;
  • Extensive safety features including ‘Help Me’ menu to give drivers direct access to emergency services and roadside assistance;
  • Most-up-to-date traffic information through TomTom’s Traffic subscription or through the TomTom RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver
  • Built-in FM Transmitter to play music and navigation instructions over the car stereo;
  • Clear voice instructions and text-to-speech, to enable street names, places, traffic alerts and SMS messages to be read aloud as part of the spoken instructions;
  • New smart & fun extras to personalize users’ devices, including recording your own driving instructions, view documents, exchange positions via SMS and Bluetooth™ wireless technology and select a favourite car icon on the screen;
  • TomTom desk dock to easily charge the TomTom GO 920 T and connect to a computer and TomTom HOME, TomTom’s free software application;
  • Free TomTom HOME software to access ready to use online services such as Safety Cameras, Traffic and Weather;
  • Full range of accessories to match the design and finish of the new GO range, including a leather carry case, a soft touch carry case, iPod cable and a home charger.
    The new TomTom GO 920 T will be available in the last quarter of 2007.

    Magellan (Finally) Updates the Maestro 4040, Releases Firmware 2.24

    Magellan (Finally) Updates the Maestro 4040, Releases Firmware 2.24: "

    After almost 4 months of waiting, Magellan has finally updated the Maestro 4040's software to version 2.24, making the 4040 consistent with the rest of the Maestro product line.

    Looks like 2.24 is a major update that resolves many of the complaints I had when I first reviewed the Maestro 4040 back in April '07, and makes the 4040's map screen and user interface look like the Maestro 4050 and 3140.

    Magellan has released each of the various Maestros (3100, 3140, 4040, 4050) with different software versions and different map screens, fonts, and features. Thankfully, Magellan has updated the 4040 to version 2 of Maestro's software, and it now displays the estimated arrival time and uses a larger font that's easier to read.

    Users had reported buying Maestro 4040's with the 2.24 firmware already installed, but until this week the update hasn't been available for download for existing Maestro users.

    Unfortunately, there's still no update for the Maestro 3100.

    The Maestro 4040 firmware update is available via Magellan's support site.

    the new Pioneer AVIC N4: "


    Pioneer recently made their brand new AVIC N4 available for a suggested retail price of $1600. AVIC N4 is not just a GPS navigation system but more of an in-dash DVD multimedia navigation receiver that (with add-ons) can control your iPod (video iPods too) and connect to your bluetooth compatible phone.

    It comes with two DVDs full of TeleAtlas maps that will bring door-to-door navigation of U.S. and Canada and 12 million POIs along the way to your fingertips. The DVDs also include detailed city maps of 23 cities and highway lane information for 50 cities. You maybe concerned about not being able to enjoy your DVDs or CDs while navigating - but worry no more: Engineers at Pioneer are one step ahead of you and they put a memory navigation mode on AVIC N4 meaning you can take the map DVD out once your route is calculated.

    Even though AVIC N4 comes in a 1DIN chassis, thanks to the motorized nature of the device you get a full 7″ screen at 16:9 ratio which has anti glare coating and 50 to 110 degrees angle setting.

    AVIC N4 is also XM/Sirius ready, has an FM/AM tuner, and can pretty much play any kind of media that you can fit on an optical disc.

    AVIC N4 is the successor to AVIC N3, and even though the MSRP is at $1600 you can already find it for about $1200 on eBay.

    Garmin RINO 530HCx Review

    Garmin RINO 530HCx Review: "

    The Garmin RINO series is a long standing part of the Garmin line up that takes their core GPS capability and extends it by paying attention to the needs of the consumer out in the field. GPS answers the ‘Where are you’ question and help you get to where you are going, but when you are outdoors you may also want to know where your friends are too.

    The unit combines a fully functioning GPS with an FRS/GMRS radio allowing you to not only talk to your hiking or biking partners but with the special polling features, it will show you the GPS location them too. In concept it’s a great premise for the RINO series, and I will say that in practice, it’s like Instant Messaging for the outdoors enthusiast. I wish I had the current capabilities when I first started using the first FRS radios years ago. For this review I was able to take the new RINO 530HCx and the older RINO 520 for a trip to the White Mountains and for several general ‘playing around’ hikes and walks. They performed well, and gave added confidence and convenience to our travels.

    The Garmin RINO 530 HCx is available at Amazon.

    Navigate To Our Pants: HTMS Provia A1, So Hot It Makes Us Horny: "

    Prov.jpgThose bad-asses at Technabob unearthed a little, navigating gem. This sexy bitch is Korea's HTMS, Provia A1 GPS navigator. Once again proving Korea rocks technology like the Sony Bravia advertisement slogan. Hit the jump for the details.

    The navigation system is detailed by impressively intricate 3D maps. By the look of it they are so detailed, we do not think you even have to bother looking at the road whilst you drive. As you are not looking at the road, why not entertain yourself? The Provia A1 supports full screen video playback in many formats. I know what you are thinking—how are you going to see your route whilst watching 'What Women Want'? Picture-in-picture mode has got you covered. If you prefer digital TV instead, there is a DMB receiver packed in behind the glorious, 7' (400x800) touchscreen display. Pricing and launch details are not available as yet.

    The heart of the Provia A1 is an Intel PXA270 processor clocking out at 520MHz. On board memory of 256MB can be upped to a relatively tiny 2GB via SD. Once again, those Korean's are not likely to share the love. I for one am not jealous, as I can change the colour scheme on my Tom-Tom 500—put that in your feature pipe and smoke it HTMS!

    The new TomTom GO 720 is a flat form factor that has a widescreen, and some great 3-D graphics that show building footprints to improve the overall navigation experience. Loads of fun extras that allow you to record and use your own voice sets so you can have friends, your belligerent spouse, or your kids offer you turn-by-turn directions. There is also a ‘Help Me’ menu with shortcuts to get you to the police station or service station quickly.

    The TomTom GO 720 is available at Amazon

    viliv X2 AIO PMP has FM Transmitter and GPS: "
    viliv-x2-aio-pmp.jpgIt seems like new PMPs have been coming out of the woodwork recently and the Korean firm viliv has a new one they announced today called the X2 A.I.O.. It’s certainly a nice looking device that features a built-in DMB TV receiver and a GPS receiver.

    Storage capacity is either 30GB or 60GB and the screen is a large 4.3-inch LCD panel made by Samsung. This is the second PMP announced this week that has a built-in FM transmitter and the X2 is powered by a rather fast AMD AU1250 CPU running at 600 MHz.

    Other features include a video player and a built-in dictionary. It seems that while the device has a GPS receiver, there is no software included to really take advantage of this feature.

    AnyDrive X1 GPS navigation features external HDD and a remote: "

    gps-hdd-al-tech-x1.jpg The creative Koreans have come up with another way of selling their 7″ DMB + GPS navigation combo device which seems like a common household item over there from this side of the ocean. This time AnyDrive X1 adds an external 40GB HDD which is actually a media player (MG-25p) that supports all sorts of movie formats including DivX and audio formats such as OGG, WMA9 and more. The bad part about the external media player is that it is external and requires and additional power source but the good news is that you can control it with a remote control - separate from the main unit.

    MG-25p connects to AnyDrive X1 via the USB host but you can also use MG-25p on any display that accepts inputs from AV out cables. We have no info on pricing of AnyDrive X1. But we do know that it won’t be coming to the States… via

    MS Launches Streets & Trips 2008 with USB GPS & MSN Direct: "

    It seems like it was just a few months ago that we checked out Microsoft Streets & Trips 2007 with the GPS locator. Microsoft has launched a new and updated version called Streets & Trips 2008. You can still get the new 2008 version with the GPS locator included, as software alone or with a new MSN Direct device.

    The MSN Direct device provides traffic updates, construction and accident information to help you avoid delays in your commute. It additionally provides gas prices and station locations in your area for price comparison. Neither of these two features requires a web connection as Direct receives real-time info from FM.

    The 2008 version also features auto re-routing if you miss a turn and a perspective map view that gives a display similar to what you see through your windshield. The MSRP for the version with MSN Direct is$179.99 and it is available now.

    GlobalTop's 51-channel G66 Touch Bluetooth GPS receiverSure, we've seen a plethora of Bluetooth GPS receivers over the years, but GlobalTop's latest manages to stand out in the crowd. Boasting 51-channels, a reported 20-hours of battery life, and a built-in antenna, the oh-so-sexy G66 Touch measures in at just 3.09- x 1.96- x 0.27-inches. Additionally, you'll find USB connectivity / charging support, -158dBm sensitivity, a trio of LED indicators, and a fairly respectable startup time. Not a lot of dirt beyond that just yet, but review units should be hitting hands soon enough.

    Katana II review

    Katana II review: "


    The Sanyo Katana II that we featured on Navigadget recently got a short review and failed the class in GPS functionality.

    The inclusion of an embedded GPS is unusual at this price point, but to use it you must download Sprint’s implementation of Telnav’s GPS software and pay a subscription fee of $10 a month or $3 a day. I found the service often unpleasant to use.

    It sounds like Katana II has great looks but it lacks the ability to provide sufficient navigation thanks to Sprint’s slow download speeds and long TTFF.

    More details on the Magellan Triton series

    More details on the Magellan Triton series: "

    Following my post on the forthcoming Magellan Triton series, GPS Tracklog and Groundspeak readers chimed in with their own questions, which I forwarded to Magellan.' Justin Doucette was kind enough to give us an advance look at some of the Triton's capabilities. Here's the Q and A:

    Q: Will the Triton series be able to auto-route, assuming the proper Magellan maps are loaded to the unit?

    A: Yes, this will require an application upgrade and the purchase of a Magellan Street Map.' This option will be available in early 2008.

    Q: Can you provide more details on photo geocoding? For example, will the Triton 2000 write location data to the EXIF header?

    A: The geographic coordinates (Lat/Long) will be recorded in the jpeg header file.

    Q: Will the Triton accept geocaching log data (like descriptions, hints, previous logs) along with the actual geocache points?'

    A: All geocaches will have to be loaded into VantagePoint prior to synchronization with Triton, but most (if not all) geocache attributes are supported in VP.' Stig (Pedersen, Senior Director of Marketing) may be able to comment on exactly which attributes are attainable through the Triton user interface.

    Q: How many geocache points can be loaded to the device?

    A: I believe the communicated limit is 1000, but there should be no reason (other than available space) that would limit the maximum.

    Q: Will the unit accept standard .gpx files via USB?

    A: .GPX files will be loaded into VantagePoint first, then VP will communicate with Triton via USB.

    Harman/Becker BE 7928 GPS

    Harman/Becker's BE 7928 GPS navigation device just got the green signal from the FCC. The BE 7928 features a touch screen interface, as well as a phone button to answer/reject incoming calls over Bluetooth. A nifty Day/Night button switches between Day view and Night view when using the navigation system. The system takes in SD/MMC memory cards allowing you to store maps, MP3 music and more. It also features a USB device for connecting to your PC.

    One of the neat features of the Harman/Becker BE 7928 GPS device is the included FM transmitter. This lets you transmit your MP3 songs onto your car radio. The Bluetooth transceiver on this device allows you to connect only one phone at a time. When a phone is connected, contacts from your SIM card are automatically downloaded onto the BE 7928 so you can dial them directly from it rather than having to fumble with the phone when driving (you don't do that now, do you?).

    Medion MDPPC 250 review

    | 0 comentários

    medion-mdppc-250.jpgMedion MDPPC 250 is a PDA that comes with a GPS receiver which is not integrated into the device. This maybe a slight disadvantage considering it will cause extra clutter in your vehicle and you won’t be able to use it on foot since it needs to be plugged into the car charger for power. There are advantages too though: You’ll probably be able to get a quicker satellite fix since you can place right in front of your windshield and also it won’t drain your handheld’s battery.

    A UK site just did a review for Medion MDPPC 250 and found to be pleasing if you are on the market for a budget system:

    …there are some nice touches to this system, such as voice directions including road numbers. But overall it is let down by a lack of full postcode entry, low volume levels, and a basic POI system. If you’re on a tight budget and don’t mind the weaknesses mentioned above then it is worthy of consideration, especially if you’re only going to use the GPS on an occasional basis. When you consider the cheap price which gives you both a decent spec PDA and basic satellite navigation system it represents good value for money

    You can pick up Medion MDPPC 250 GPS from this site for £115.

    I-Navi brings G1 to the fore

    The G1 personal navigation device from I-Navi comes with some interesting improvements such as a brighter display that has a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. It is powered by an AU1200 chipset from RMI, and really differentiates itself from the rest with the inclusion of both geomagnetic and gravity sensors. The former detects the absolute direction of the North Pole as well as heading direction of the vehicle while the latter senses motion via vectors X, Y, and Z. This means you can drive through urban canyons without missing a beat, as both sensors will maintain a steady direction unlike other GPS navigation systems that rely purely on their antenna.

    Pharos GPS Phone 600e
    An enterprise version of the GPS Phone 600, the 600e is similar to 600 in all respects, except that this does not include pre-loaded navigation software, maps or car kit. Priced at US $599.95, the price for those signing up a 2-year contract with T-Mobile is now $399.95.
