Porsche is all set to penetrate the satellite navigation system – GPS game with an upcoming receiver powered by Navigon software. This device features a 4.3-inch 480 x 272 pixel 16:9 display, a 520MHz XScale processor, a dedicated graphics processor, 64MB of RAM / ROM, an SD / MMC slot, a Bluetooth hands-free kit, and a removable battery, all running on Windows CE. The system will caution the driver of radar speed traps and of traffic in the 37 mapped European countries, and will even play MP3s on the undoubtedly tinny speakers.
Apparently the P9611 will also work in non-Porsche vehicles, but it’ll be pre-programmed with the locations of all Porsche dealerships worldwide. Wondering why they have not “mapped” United States as well! Further perks like a charger to light cigar, a cord of antenna RDS/TMC, a charger sector and a cable of synchronization are also provided. Map yourself with this gadget that is priced at $960 (approximately) and is expected to be shipped in November.
