CeBIT: Navman's GPS PDA


Navman, one of a small but interesting contingent of exhibitors from New Zealand at CeBit, has new GPS product in the guise of the PIN 57, a Windows based PDA. It uses Navman’s SmartST navigation software to display 3d or 2d maps and deliver turn by turn instructions. Another new-ish feature is points of interest which allows the user to customise individual POI and download other POI databases.

Other features include microsoft® Windows Mobile 2003 operating system, a Samsung 266MHz processor with 64MB of internal RAM, a 3.5-inch transflective LCD touch screen (with 65,000 colours and a 240 x 320 resolution) and an MMC/ SD (SDIO) expansion slot. It will be available for £349 from May.

Navman is also displaying the X300, the latest in its series of sports devices, which uses GPS satellites to tell joggers, skiers or cyclists how far and fast they are going.
