MyGuide is finally bestowing its award winning navigational produce on the UK. The entry-level 3200 (pictured above) coupled with newly developed software, version 6.0, will mark the beginning of what we hope will be a steady trickle of quality gadgetry from the company currently based in Germany.
The 6.0 software offers super speedy multi-point route planning from the off. There’s no need for installation or online registration, you just stick in the MyGuide memory card and your MyGuide is ready to go.
Everything’s accessible through no more than a couple of taps on the touch screen, and detailed maps of the UK and Europe are stored on the 1GB memory card, eliminating the need for downloads.
If you’re not sure where something is or you just want a surprise destination, there are thousands of points of interest (POIs) to pick from. Set a random one with a single tap on the screen and you’ve got yourself your own personal magical mystery tour.
MyGuide has slaved over the last twelve months to try and develop version 6.0; maps come in a range of colours to look like traditional paper road maps, and 2D and 3D views with zoom and tilt make it easier to understand commands when approaching turns.
It will also automatically switch between day and night modes according to current times of sunrise and sunset. What a smarty.
If you fancy finding your way round with the MyGuide 6.0, give them a ring on 01909 517 104. The entry-level 3200 will set you back £250.
