IFA 2007: Porsche Design launch P'9611 GPS unit

If you've ever longed to own a Porsche, then perhaps the Porsche P'9611 is the satnav device for you.

Turning its eye away from mobile phones and digital radios, design house Porsche Design, have created what it thinks is the must have satnav unit: the £650 P'9611.

The GPS receiver, which will be making its way to the UK in October will come with TMC, Bluetooth, Lane Assistant for showing you which lane to be in on motorways and of course the usual array of MP3 player and picture viewer.

In an attempt to break itself away from the likes of TomTom, Garmin and Navman, the unit will come in a brushed metal finish and the cradle will not only includes the antenna for the traffic offering, but also two stereo speakers for music and direction playback.

The technology behind the device is actually from Navigon.
