Motorola TN20, TN30 GPS

Motorola has a couple of GPS units coming to market for the end of the year, the standard screen Mororola TN20 and the widescreen Motorola TN30. Both units were announced recently and are set to go on sale exclusively at Radio Shack. The Moto TN20 GPS looks like a fairly standard GPS entry level GPS that offers a 3.5-inch screen, maps for he 48 continental states, and text to speech (something that isn't on all entry level units). It cuts corners on the claimed 1 million Points of Interest, hardly enough to pass my test of reasonable amounts. I can hardly stand 1.3 million POI, let alone 1 mil.

The Moto TN30 is a widescreen version GPS (4.3-inch) that adds a few features to make the offering a bit more rounded out. The TN30 has text to speech and maps of North America, while adding POI - in fact a total claimed POI of 4 million, which is more like it in my mind.

The Motorola TN20 GPS has a list price of $199, and the Motorola TN30 for $299.

Both are available at Radio Shack.
