The new X-960 and X-970T portable GPS units from ViaMichelin don't exactly break new ground, but they're both looking moderately stylish, and boast of enough specs to get by. On the low end, the X-960 keeps it simple with a 3.5-inch touchscreen, 300MHz Samsung processor and 2 hours of battery life. The little guy measures 0.8-inches thick, and comes in "individual country" or "all of Europe" flavors for €229 ($301 US) and €299 ($393 US), respectively. Things get stepped up a bit with the X-970T (pictured), which sports a QVGA 3.5-inch touchscreen, 400MHz Samsung processor and 3 hour battery life, along with an external RDS/TMC receiver for traffic info and a hands-free Bluetooth setup. The device runs CE 5.0, holds 64MB of RAM, 128MB of ROM, and comes in similar SKUs to its little brother: €329 ($433 US) for maps of a single European country, €399 for all of Europe ($525 US). The X-960 is after the break.
