Navman announced three new GPS unit today in addition to a new web-based, navigation-by-picture service called NavPix. At the top-end is the 4GB disk drive-totin' iCN750, which features a 1.3 megapixel rear-mounted shooter allowing users to snap location-mapped photos of peeps or places which can then be uploaded to the NavPix service for sharing with your
buddies. For example, download a NavPix "location" image of Big Ben and the iCN will use the embedded location data to plot a course. Other than lacking a disk (storage provided via SD / MMC slot) and camera, the iCN720 model offers-up the same 4-inch 480 x 272 touchscreen display found on the iCN750, as well as those dedicated gas station and car park buttons, fold-out antenna, and new SiRFStar III GPS chipset for low-power consumption and better indoor coverage. The iCN530 has all the features of the 720 but features a smaller 3.5-inch 320 x 240 display, internal antenna, and older SiRF XTrac chipset. The iCN750 and iCN720 will hit the streets in May for £540 / $937 and £399 / $693, respectively, while the iCN530 will ship in April for £299 / $519. Click on for more pics.
