Those thinking GPS to stuff the stockings this winter now have option when it comes to picking out the perfect handheld / car navigation system. Bushnell is taking time from crafting those night vision goggles and luxurious binoculars to throw down three forthcoming GPS units. The ONIX 200 ($199.99; pictured after the break) handheld sports a SiRF Star III receiver, 240 x 160 resolution grayscale display, 128MB of SDRAM, 32MB of built-in memory, integrated US / Canadian maps, rugged / waterproof design, and even boasts the nifty ability to "download, display, and georeference satellite photography." The similar ONIX 200 CR sports the same specs and functionality, including a 26-hour battery life on two AA cells, but replaces the monochrome LCD with a 320 x 240 resolution colored version. On the car-based side, the NAV 500 ($599.99) features a 3.5-inch color touchscreen, pre-installed maps of the US and Canada, a SiRF Star III receiver, MP3 player, SD slot, photo viewer, and a "pedestrian mode to calculate walking routes." While the ONIX 200 and NAV 500 units will both be available this month, the colorific ONIX 200 CR should hit shelves by next February.
