GPS Lodge Monthly Round-up for September 2005
This was another fun month here at the GPS Lodge, as we were able to bring you a lot of GPS News this month. Most recently you may have seen us referenced on Gizmodo where they picked up our exciting announcement on the new Magellan RoadMate 800. If this is your first trip to the GPS Lodge, welcome. Check us out, we have a lot of GPS information and GPS reviews on receivers and devices. While you are here, check out some of the other sites at the Blogpire.
We also covered Magellan's announcement of their new RoadMate 360, adding features to the low end of the automotive market. We also reviewed the Magellan eXplorist 600 this month - Magellan's high end handheld.
In news from the other biggie in the industry here in the US, Garmin announced the new Garmin Nuvi, a personal navigation handheld device geared for travelers - complete with translation capabilities. Garmin kept up a fast pace on GPS releases, with the new Garmin StreetPilot i5 - a great little inexpensive automotive GPS. Wonder how Garmin can keep up the fast pace of new introductions? Check out our article on Garmin's HUGE increase in R&D spending. In cleaning up some older business, we reviewed the tried but true Garmin V GPS; is it a handheld? Is it an Automotive GPS model? It's both!
In other news, AOL's MapQuest announced that they will start selling a MapQuest branded TomTom model. In case an automotive GPS is too big, you can carry along a key chain GPS from Navicom or the GPS watch from Suunto. Finally there's some interesting news coming out on the Navman PIN 570.
