AG1 combines automotive and golf GPS

AG1 is a brand new GPS navigation system announced by Expresso today. It can be used as a regular car GPS navigation system to get turn by turn driving directions or as a golf range finder which includes more than 33000 courses around the world. In addition it includes a media player for your tunes and videos. We don’t know how much it will cost as ‘where to buy’ section of their website is still under construction.

AG1 has an automatic portrait and landscape function, 3.6″ TFT LCD touchscreen, battery that can last up to 10 - 12 hours, built in stereo speakers, and two SD card slots that allows up to 64GB of storage.

The car navigation system portion of AG1 is done via collaboration with NAVIGON while the golfing part of the device is integrated with help from iGolf.

There’s a lot more information on ExpressoGPS’ website.
