Motorola MotoNav TN765t

Auto Tech
[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> If at first you don't succeed, test yourself often and try again. That seems to be what the guys and gals at Motorola have in mind as they jump back into the fray that is the portable navigation market with the all new MotoNav TN765t. I am Antuan Goodwin with CNET.com. Let's take a first look at this device and see if third time is a charm. Like the MotoNav TN20 and TN30 that came before it, the TN765t is quite the looker. It features a sleek gun metal finish on the screen's bezel while the rest of the techy is a semi-matte black. On the back we have got a couple of physical keys for volume up and down, zoom in and out and one customizable key. However, the real story here is the 765t's unique form factor. Although, this is not the first 5-inch PND that we have tested, it is the first to feature a cinematic super wide aspect ratio for its screen. The upside of this configuration is users still get a ton of screen real estate, but with a much shorter profile, it takes up much less vertical windshield space. Here we have the TN765t next to the TomTom XL and you can see that despite having a slightly bigger screen, the Motorola is much shorter. This safety can be cool. Now, the MotoNav TN765t's interface has also been significantly tweaked with an all new interface that features sliding menu that do not completely obscure the map while driving. So, for example you can pull out the voice command menu while you are blasting down the freeway without worrying about missing your exit. The 765t also features Bluetooth hands-free calling with contact thing and it can also receive traffic data when it is connected to its car cradle. It can also download rich data such as fuel prices, speed and traffic camera, weather and flight info using a service called Moto Extras. For example, if you are looking for a restaurant that is not in the device's POI database, simply hit the Google search button from the search screen and the MotoNav will initiate a short call using your Bluetooth paired phone to download a Motorola server and then it will retrieve the search data. Because this is a voice call, Motorola claims that it will work with just about any Bluetooth phone which is about all of them these days. Check out the full review for an even closer look of the ins and outs of the MotoNav interface and performance. Until then, I am Antuan Goodwin, with CNET.com taking a first look at the MotoNav TN765t. ^M00:02:36 [ Music ]
