CeBIT gets a sat-nav soaking

Commodore may have been the story of this year’s CeBIT show for computer geeks, but the habitually lost will be pleased to hear that TomTom, Mio and Garmin have been supplying some sat-nav action too.Taxi drivers and couriers will be particularly keen to audition the new TomTom 715 (above), which sports a SIM card slot. Not much use if you’ve already got a phone and handsfree, but it does mean you can connect directly to the web and business services like TomTom WEBFLEET. If that’s your thing. After something a bit more conventional? Good ol’ straight-laced Mio has some presents for you. Its new C320, C520 and C520t all have generous 4.3in widescreen displays, with the latter coming with a docking cradle with TMC traffic alerts. They’re all multimedia luvvies too, with a built-in MP3 player, photo viewer, Bluetooth for handsfree calling and maps for Western Europe installed on the 1GB flash memory. Should just about see you through your shopping trip to Waitrose. Similarly accomplished is Garmin’s new top-end 660FM, which matches the Mio’s C520t but adds an FM transmitter so your sat-nav’s velvety tones can be channelled through your stereo system.Finally, if that sound likes overkill, have a peep at its nuvi 200 series. This pocket-sized number is custom-made for GPS-phobes with a 3.5in screen, voice directions and, ahem, a calculator. Well, it might come in useful.
