Watch where you're going with Dual's portable nav system

Dual releases another portable GPS navigation system

Car stereo-maker Dual is on the trail of the likes of Magellan, TomTom, and Garmin with the release of its second portable GPS navigation system. The XNAV3550 uses Navigon navigation software, features a 3.5 inch TFT touch screen display, and is preloaded with maps of the United States, including nearly 2 million points of interest. The unit, which will retail for $499, also comes with a range of multimedia playback options, including the ability to play MP3s and movies, and to view JPG photos. All navigation and media data is stored on the XNAV3550's 1GB SD media card, and is served up via the unit?s 400MHz processor running a Windows CE.Net (4.2) operating system.
