Posted in GPS,Sony by Paul Patterson on October 8th, 2006

Sony NV-U70

The one feature that really makes this GPS stand out is the generous 3.5-inch touch screen. The anti-glare/anti-fingerprint touch screen produces clear, sharp text that is easy to read. The touch-screen control is easy to navigate with the intuitive menu system. The Intelligent Auto-Dimming Feature keeps the screen readable all day as the screen automatically adjusts the brightness level of the display based on the amount of light around the unit.

The unit comes pre-installed with maps of the 48 contiguous states and a database of 1.6 Million Points of Interest (POI). With the included DVD you can load USA, Canada, Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico on the 1GB internal flash memory.

Tom Tom

The TomTom GO 910 is a gadget that has more features pound for pound than most other gadgets I have seen. By trade I would say that TomTom is a GPS but it has a surprisingly large number of features that you might not expect, but make perfect sense once you see it.

For the GPS part of it, this model of the TomTom comes with door to door navigation in the US, Canada and Europe, a graphical bright color display of the maps in different views, and it speaks to you with direction instructions with it’s text to speech feature (can read your text for other items too, not just the directions). Also, it can speak 36 different languages and it has 50 different voices to choose from. You interact with the device using the large touch screen to make it easy …

Uniden MapTrax GPS

Posted in GPS by Darrin Olson on September 10th, 2006

Uniden MapTrax GPSThe most common consumer item I have seen from Uniden in the past is cordless phones, so when I saw that they Uniden was coming out wtih a line of GPS products I had to take a look. Uniden also makes some walkie talkie type items and marine radio devices, so I guess GPS systems are not too far off the mark for them.

The makers of the MapTrax focus on the fact that is has a large, colorful, easy to read touch screen. This is to improve safety while driving by avoiding have to fumble with buttons or dials.

The devices also are to feature Bluetooth integration and text to speach audio, which is almost a must now to compete with other popular mobile GPS devices; right, right? (My feeble attempt at making a reference to the Tom Tom GPS, if you

Posted in GPS,HTC,Mobile Phones,PDAs by Darrin Olson on September 8th, 2006

HTC P3300One of the 4 new devices recently released from HTC is the P3300 PDA Phone and personal mobile navigator.

One of the coolest things about this mobile gadget has got to be the built-in stand-alone GPS navigation system run by the new TomTom Navigator 6. This makes the P3300 a great device for traveling in unknown territories where you need to get your exact current location and directions to wherever you are going, instantly. The large 2.8″ LCD screen doesn’t hurt, either.

The HTC P3300 runs on Microsoft Mobile 5.0 PDA Phone and has wireless connections with the GSM/GPRS, BlueTooth 2.0 and WiFi. Microsoft’s Direct Push technology makes it a nice business phone getting instant emails and meeting information sent to you while on the go.

Posted in Garmin,GPS by Paul Patterson on August 26th, 2006

Garmin eTrex LegendI purchased the Garmin eTrex Legend Cx GPS a few weeks ago for some trips I have planned this summer. It has everything I wanted in a GPS; it has a color screen, small footprint, light, easy to use, and most importantly, it tells me where I need to go.
