[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Hi, I'm Bonnie Cha, senior editor at CNET.com, and today, we're taking a first look at the Nokia 330 Auto Navigation System. I know they usually make cell phones, but they do have an automotive unit and this is their first portable navigation system. In a word, it's just average. The design is okay. It's nice and compact, but I wish the screen was a little bigger. And the resolution isn't quite as good as the others. You do get all your navigation basics, such as text and voice guided directions. But, during test drives, I noticed the voice-guided directions weren't as specific as other ones. For example, on a highway, it told me to take an exit but there were a couple exits and it didn't tell me which one so that was a little confusing. It also has a music player and a video player, but you know, I don't use it that much on these devices so, just kind of extras that are on there. The 330 is available now for about 500 dollars, but for my money, I'd probably go with the Garman C550 or the Magellan Maestro 4040, just smoother systems. Overall, not bad though. I'm Bonnie Cha and this has been the Nokia 330 Auto Navigation System. ^M00:01:02 [ Music]
