Your current GPS navigational system might be able to get you safely home, but can it soothe you in a jam with a selection of your favourite tunes? In-car music maestros Blaupunkt have created a device that can do just that.
The TravelPilot Lucca MP3 combines a MP3/WMA music centre with a photo-viewer and, of course, advanced 3D GPS navigation.
Navigation software is pre-loaded onto the 512MB internal flash memory, with an integrated SD card slot so that dedicated navigation software for other European countries can be added.
Like most navigation systems, route guidance is provided by clear spoken instructions and map display. Unlike most systems, the TravelPilot Lucca MP3 can play back MP3 and WMA files from an SD card. It’s also possible to download your favourite photos onto an SD card to use the Lucca as a picture viewer.
In addition, Blaupunkt’s SmartCradle, which comes as standard with the Lucca MP3, enables route guidance instructions and music files to be played through the vehicle’s audio system.
The Blaupunkt TravelPilot Lucca MP3 is available at around £399.99 from December.
