The market for automotive GPS systems with all the bells and whistles (full-color maps, audible prompts, decent screen size) has pretty much been a three-way fight among the Garmin StreetPilot, Magellan RoadMate and the TomTom Go. Now marine equipment company Lowrance has added its name to the field, with its $799 iWAY 500C. PC Magazine took a look at the unit, and ranked it an Editor's Choice, for features that include a built-in 10GB MP3 player, 20GB for maps, a bright 5-inch display and good mapping software. It also includes an AC power supply, so you can hook it up at home to download your music files.
