Motonav TN500 uses your data plan but still not free

Motorola announced two new GPS navigation systems at CES 2010. One of them is the Motorola Motonav TN500 (the other Motonav TN700). Motonav TN500 is a sat nav system with a 4.3″ touchscren. It has a multiview display which can show both details of your route, points of interest along the way and even your contacts on your phone. So we need to mention it has a speakerphone and can pair with your Bluetooth-enabled phone much needed hands-free action.

You can browse your address book, call them and even search them using your voice, while keeping your hands on the wheel.

What is more important is that Motorola TN500 can actually make use of your data plan on your phone and get you traffic updates, fuel prices, weather forecasts, flight status and more, powered by Bing. And you can do all of this with your voice! The ugly thing is that these local search features is part of a service called MotoExtras and requires a subscription after a 90 day trial.

Motorola TN500 will come out first quarter of this year. We’re not sure how much the device or the subscription will cost.
