Navman has a couple new portable in-car GPS navigation devices coming down the chute, and they go simply by the names of N40i and N60i. This new generation makes use of Navman’s NavPix “innovative image-based navigation technology” and as such you find your way around by recognizing pictures rather than just words. They say that you can “simply select a picture, touch and drive.” Heck, both the N40i and N60i come with 1.3 megapixel cameras so that you can add your own snapshots to the NavPix library. They’ve kept both units quite slim, offering “enhanced style and added convenience.” Naturally, the touchscreen GPS devices make use of the second-generation SiRFstar III chipset for the most accurate information possible.
The N40i with its 3.5-inch display (which ships next month) and the N60i with its 4.3-inch display (which ships in November) are priced respectively at $500 and $600.
