Rand McNally unveils own portable GPS Navigator


Before there was such a thing as GPS and portable units for your car, we had something called a map. Like, on a piece of paper. The leader in that charge was Rand McNally, and now they’re jumping into the digital navigation foray with a gadget of their own, aptly dubbed the GPS Navigator.

The company brings 150 years of experience, helping “tens of millions of customers plan trips and get safely to and from their destinations.” Key features on the GPS Navigator include a 3.5-inch color touch screen, voice-prompted directions, and a slim, lightweight design. They’re even tossing in a companion printed road atlas, free of charge.

The price has been set at a cool $500. The GPS Navigator is available now through Rand McNally and Amazon, with a wide launch planned for October.
