Medion, the Germany-based satnav manufacturer, has extended its GoPal GPS range witht hree new widescreen models.
All three models are based on the same form, and measure 130 x 90 x 20mm, and weigh 200g. The generous 4.3-inch widescreen can display a choice of arrow, 2D or 3D onscreen directions, as well as a compass, distance to destination, estimated time remaining, and previews of major road signs. Based on Navteq mapping, the satnavs also incorporate Berlitz City Guides, which provide travel information to top ten restaurants, the best shopping areas, visitor attractions, and more to 50 major cities in Europe. All three models also have speed camera locations saved to the memory card.
The entry-level model is the GoPal PNA 460, which comes with UK and Ireland maps on a 256MB memory card, features an MP3 player and photo viewer, and retails for £200. European maps cost another £80.
Next up is the PNA 465, which adds an integrated Traffic Message Channel receiver to the list of features, as well as preinstalled European maps; this model will cost £260.
And finally, the flagship PNA470 offers the highest standard of specs, with integrated Bluetooth so that drivers can make and receive calls while driving. This model also includes European mapping and costs £300.
