Clever things those satellites; not only can they track our every move but they can snap images of every square inch of our fair planet too.

Since Sputnik these two satellite technologies have remained pretty much mutually exclusive for consumers but now they've finally come together in the shape of Blusens' new 4.3in sat-navs.

By overlaying top-down spy pics with standard cartography, the Spanish company has devised a cunningly simple interface for sat-nav kind, a la Google's hybrid map view.

Since all those revealing snaps take up a fair amount of space, the G01 gets a 30GB hard drive, while the G02 (pictured) – which adds traffic info and stereo Bluetooth – revels in its 40GB platter. Both will also handle some on-the-fly music or video.

Sadly, they're only loaded with Spanish maps for now – handy for seeing how big your apartment's pool is but less useful for negotiating Chippenham's one-way system.
