Nokia's second in-car navigation system, the Nokia 500, was just unveiled in Espoo. Not only does it do the satnav, multimedia, and handsfree Bluetooth calling like the 330, the 500 does it big with a relatively jumbo 4.3-inch display. Integration between the 500's navigation and communications allows you to receive details for the POIs you pass as well as instant directions to the addresses stored in your contacts list. The 500 also features Nokia's Traffic Message Channel Service offering jam alerts as well as an embedded FM transmitter to feed audio out any FM radio. Expected in Europe for a pre-tax price of €300/$410 sometime in Q4 2007 with other, unannounced markets to follow.
