NAVIGON 7210



 

NAVIGON 7210 seems like the European version of NAVIGON 7300T distributed in U.S.

It has the 3D landmark view, voice address entry, reality view, lane assistance, TMC traffic updates, bluetooth, text-to-speech and something we haven’t seen before: “curve warner” which warns you ahead of dangerous curves.

Some hardware specs of NAVIGON 7210 are the 4.3″ 16:9 format touch screen, SiRF Titan + Instant Fix II GPS receiver, 2GB flash ROM, 600 MHz processor, 1600 mAh Li-Ion (nice!), and maps of 40 European countries pre-installed.

NAVIGON 7210 goes for £218 on Amazon.

Panasonic CN-MP200 and CN-MP100



Panasonic CN-MP200 and CN-MP100 are two new portable GPS navigation systems for the Japanese market. As with everything in Japan, CN-MP200 can show digital TV channels thanks to its 1Seg TV tuner.

There isn’t anything too exciting about these GPS navigation systems other than the fact that they allow two way communication between the device and Google Maps for sharing POIs.

Some hardware specs and features include 5″ touchscreen, SD card slot, VICS, JPEG, and DIGA support.

Garmin Forerunner 310XT



Garmin today revealed its latest multi-sport-specific GPS device, the 310XT. Available starting in June, the new device will be sold packaged with a new waterproof, soft-strap heart rate monitor, which will be more comfortable than previous models, or on its own as a standalone unit, for a price of $349.

The 310XT is the next evolution of Garmin’s popular 305 model, and adds a longer battery life—a staggering 20 hours—as well as waterproofing up to 50 meters, making it ideal for the triathlon set.

The 310XT synchs wirelessly to PCs and, now, Macs, for automatic data downloads through ANT+ wireless technology. The wrist-mount device can also can be secured to a handlebar via an optional soft mount.

The large display and intuitively laid-out buttons are backed up by a piercing audio alarm or optional vibration setting, so you users won’t miss a beat. The 310XT tracks speed, distance and location, and if you really want to dork out on data, it works with wireless power-counting devices like SRM cranks and Saris Powertap hubs. Once you collect all that data you can upload it to GarminConnect.com, where you can store your activities and share between millions of other logged rides, runs and hikes.
