Deluo MouseGPS combines a laptop USB mouse and GPS receiver into one deviceDeluo, the same company that recently brought us the Bluetooth GPS for smartphones, also has available the Deluo GPSMouse. As the name implies the GPSMouse combines a GPS receiver and a travel mouse into one product.

This 2 in1 gadget first works as a normal, USB-powered optical travel mouse with a lightweight design for taking with you on the go. It even has a retractable USB cord built-in to help keep it compact. In addition, through a flick of a switch on the bottom it instantly transforms into a GPS receiver connected to your computer through the same USB cable and offering positional assistance without having to have a separate device. The MouseGPS can also optionally come packaged with Microsoft Streets & Trips giving you both pointer and street navigation in one device. What we’d really love to see is the next version of this MouseGPS to be wireless Bluetooth as well.

Provia A1 GPS NavigatorIt looks like a navigation system from the year 2020 but this baby will be soon on the market for lucky South Koreans. Made by HTMS it’s called the Provia A1. The GPS component sports wicked looking 3D models so you can actually reference the real-life topography with what’s being shown on the screen. For map-challenged people like myself, that alone is worth this thing’s weight in gold.

The images are displayed on a 7-inch 800 x 400 resolution touchscreen which can also display a movie as a picture-in-picture. That’s right, you can look for landmarks while watching that DVD you just picked up from Best Buy. There is even a DMB receiver so you can view digital television broadcasts while on the road. We recommend that you have your collision insurance paid up before using one of these babies.

The Provia A1 runs off …
