Nokia 500 Auto Navigation

August 29, 2007


In-car GPS Navigator has been around for a while, then Nokia thought of a mobile navigator… and then Nokia realised, “Hey! If I have the facilities, capabilities and brand name, why don’t I just make standalone navigator and take the big market share!”

The GPS unit doubles as a Bluetooth handsfree set, and the regionally-tuned mapping software can offer up contact details of points along the way, which means a quick click-to-call without looking up numbers for, say, hotels and restaurants.
A built in MP3 player will beam tunes to your car radio via FM, and there are photo slideshow and video functions for times when the split screen traffic info service fails to bail you out of gridlock. Due in Europe this fall for €300, with a Worldwide rollout soon after.
Oh my… its affordable…
