ViaMichlen gets FCC OK for US
ViaMichelin's new GPS navigation device, the Navigation X-980T, has just got approval from the FCC. ViaMichlen is already in Europe and must be planning a launch here too. The X-980T features a touch screen interface, and supports SD memory cards, so maps will most likely be via an SD card. It is also equipped for live traffic. No word on pricing or when it will go on sale, but we saw the Garmin Nuvi 660 launch weeks after an FCC leak and the Garmin Mobile 10X launch a couple of months after its leak. So your guess is as good as mine. It’s getting late to launch anything before the busy holiday season, so if they don’t launch immediately, look for an announcement after the new year, potentially at CES in January where there were a whole lot of announcements last year.
Update: Even more information on the Via Michelin X-930
