Harman Kardon Guide + Play – sat nav and entertainment all-in-one

MP3 players, Personal video players, Satellite Navigation systems

Harman Kardon are going down the convergence route – offering sat nav, music and video playback all in one device – the Guide + Play.

The pocket-sized Guide + Play offers mapping for the whole of Western Europe on the included 2GB card, with high-res 2D and 3D maps for route planning on the four-inch LCD touch screen. There’s also built-in TMC (traffic message channel) and a speed camera warning where permitted. There’s also a fold-flat portable mount to secure the device in your car.

In terms of entertainment, you can browse and watch movies in either MPEG-4 or WMV 9 movies, with the expected range of music formats, along with Windows DRM 10. All media is transferred via USB 2.0.

Available with a slim carrying case, universal wall-mount AC adapter and in-car cigarette-lighter cable, it will retail for £345 from May.
