It's been a while since we've seen a new Mio navi hit Stateside -- Mitac seems to be concentrating on the Magellan brand here -- but it looks like there's still some kick left in those boots: say hello to the Moov S401 and S501. Baby brother 401 will sell for $129 and has a 4.3-inch screen and four...

Hey, they don't call this thing the International Consumer Electronics Show for nothing, so it shouldn't come as any big surprise to see Nextar unveiling a trio of new navigators that are destined for routes in South America. PNDs for Argentina (M3-AR), Brazil (M3-BR), and Mexico (updated to the M3...

They're far from common, but we've definitely seen modular GPS concepts before. If this leaked FCC documentation is any gauge of reality, however, TomTom will be making those wild, wild dreams into something entirely more tangible. The DUB1 is an up and coming navigator which is designed to operate...

We get the idea that the Q4-01 and Q4-02 are simply non-MSN Direct versions of the Q4-MD we've already seen, but we'll humor you anyway. The newest duo in the Q4 lineup includes a 4.3-inch touchscreen, voice-guided directions, NAVTEQ maps, an SD card slot, multimedia player and a rechargeable Li-io...

What comes after the GPSmile 61? Why, the GPSmile 62, of course! The predictably titled successor to the big-bezeled unit we spotted at CES earlier this year has surfaced, though there's no real indication that it's coming stateside. Thus far, we're seeing a 5-inch WQVGA display, an "edge-free" desi...

Sanyo's gone a few months now without popping out a new Gorilla navigator, but as of this week, you'll be forced to live with slightly antiquated jungle-themed GPS units no more. For starters, the outfit introduced a pair of SSD-based in-car units, the NVA-GS1580FT and NVA-GS1480DT; both of these f...

As with Jeep's lackluster RT-300, Panasonic's portable Strada CN-GP50U GPS is probably better left on the shelf. We know, it'll be awfully tough to resist that magnificent 5-inch panel and the sleek black frame, but according to PC Mag, this thing is just so-so on its best day. For starters, the pr...

Hmm, maybe Jeep should stick to scaling mountains and whatnot. To be totally frank, we had all but forgotten that a Jeep-branded navigator was even in the works, let alone closing in on release -- of course, maybe that's because we last heard of this thing in December of 2007. At any rate, the rugg...

Navigon's 2150 Max isn't revolutionary in terms of design nor specifications, but it does feature a rather delicious list of features for just £229.99 ($458). All-too-trusting UK motorists can look forward to a 4.3-inch display, pre-loaded maps of 39 countries, built-in Bluetooth, text-to-spe...
