DeLorme PN-40 Handheld GPS - Fast Redraws, Super Sensitivity

DeLorme has a new handheld coming this Fall, the PN-40, an upgrade to the PN-20 handheld unit that brought imagery to handheld GPS units. The New PN-40 comes with a new chipset for higher sensitivity in low signal conditions, and a dual-core processor that allows for fast redraws of maps and images. The advantages here for the new units is that people can start to really use and enjoy the image based mapping that Google Maps has made familiar to everyone searching a location on the internet. The PN-40 also adds a barometric altimeter, and support for high capacity SD cards so you can take a lot of maps with you. Available this Fall from Delorme.

Some of the features below:

  • NEW! Super high-sensitivity 32-channel Cartesio chipset by STMicroelectronics delivers near-instantaneous signal acquisition and ConstantLockā„¢ satellite retention
  • NEW! Dual-core processor for rapid screen re-draws, even with large aerial imagery files
  • NEW! 500 MB of onboard Flash memory (1 GB total hard drive)
  • NEW! 3-axis electronic compass with included accelerometer performs when held in any position--while in motion or standing still
  • NEW! Sensitive barometric altimeter for reliably accurate altitude readings
  • NEW! Supports SDHC high-capacity SD cards--32 GB or higher
  • NEW! Fast USB 2.0 data transfer to internal memory or SD card in device
  • NEW! More detailed onboard base map data for the U.S., now with secondary and connector roads (along with major highways and thoroughfares for the entire world)
  • 65K-color daylight-readable TFT screen for clarity in any light conditions
  • Topo USA 7.0 software with complete U.S topo and street maps included--no extra purchase required. Also displays USGS 7.5-min quads, aerial imagery, and NOAA nautical charts via online download from DeLorme
