EGO Drive 4.3-inch GPS unit looks pretty, loves your phone

Raytel is bringing a new GPS navigator to CES 2008 next week in Vegas, but decided to share the details a few days early. The EGO Drive sports a 4.3-inch touchscreen with stylus, 3D maps, voice recognition and multiple user profiles, but where it really shines is in phone compatibility. Bluetooth features include hands-free calls, text-to-speech SMS reading, phone voice commands, A2DP and AVRCP audio streaming, and DSP tech for cutting down on noise and echos while you're zooming along. There's also an external knob for operating the unit without taking your eyes off the road. Media support is plentiful, and you can augment built-in memory with SD cards. No word on price or availability just yet.
