Perhaps seeing the error of its ways or facing slow sales, Alpine Electronics announced on Wednesday that it has reduced the price of its Alpine PND-K3 GPS from $349.95 to $199.95.

"When we first introduced the PND-K3, the pricing was competitive for the market and for the device's robust feature offering. As the marketplace has changed in the last few months, we are adjusting the price to meet consumer demand for a full-featured product at a better value," said Stephen Witt, vice president of marketing.

Frankly, we thought the price of the PND-K3 was too high from the get-go, but either way, we're glad to see the price drop. The portable navigation device includes features such as text-to-speech functionality, advanced lane guidance, and integrated Bluetooth. You can find out all the details in our full review of the Alpine PND-K3.
