UPDATE: See my Full Review of the Insignia CNV-10/CNV-20 - a Must Read BEFORE you waste your money.

Best Buy is letting go a pair of pretty advanced GPS units that have connected search via Google. Hum, was that the long fabled Magellan 5340 connected unit that never made it to market? Or is that still coming? Best Buy is certainly making a big leap into GPS, in an an especially difficult end of the pool here. The entry level end is flodded with cheap brands and a lot of fairly inexpensive units from the big guys. Dash Navigation has their Dash Express that has incredible connected capabilities, but has had a tough time breaking through with their entry.

The Best Buy Insignia 4.3-inch NS-CNV20 and 3.5-inch NS-CNV10 models, will use a cellular modem to deliver real-time traffic information and Google Local Search. Cost will be $499 for the NS-CNV20 and $399 for the smaller screen NS-CNV10. The nice thing is that the unit has a free subscription to the service for a year - no word on pricing after that.

On sale at your local Best Buy October 19.
