Keepin' it real fake, part XXXVI: Yuer's V410 mimics TomTom GO

Darren Murph

Yeah, there's always the voice-activated navigation systems for those not interested in fiddling with the touchscreen, but China's own Yuer (saywha?) has unveiled a GPS unit that sports voice recording capabilities to vocally note your miscues and adventurous encounters as you maneuver through the rough -- too bad there's already a more legitimate version already on the market. The V410 boasts a strangely familiar 4-inch touchscreen, SiRF Star III receiver, Samsung 400MHz processor, and 64MB of built-in SDRAM. The device also touts rips off MP3 playback functionality, and includes an SD slot and two-watt integrated speaker for pumping out the jams while navigating the Chinese alleyways. The brightly-colored enclosure shouldn't be too hard to find when rummaging through your daypack, and the 5.12- x 4.02- x 3.19-inch frame would also feel right at home on a CMEC dashboard. Unfortunately, we're not exactly sure when the V410 will be providing guidance to anyone, as there's (unsurprisingly) no details concerning price or availability, but we'd suggest just sticking with the original anyway.
