Maxfield's MAX-TRACK GPS
German outfit Maxfield has today announced its first GPS receiver, the MAX-TRACK. Running on Windows CE 5.0 with a 400 MHz Samsung processor, Maxfield claims it has the "world's fastest sat nav system." More interesting may be the accompanying features. The receiver comes with Maxfield's MAX-Navigator 5 software, covering the whole of Western Europe and allowing most of that to be loaded at any given time. Route plotting can be customized by setting preferred routes and/or blocking specific streets, which may come in handy if you know that the Champs-Élysées is going to be jammed. Maxfield is probably best known for its audio players, such as the G-FLASH and the BLACKline. The MAX-TRACK comes out in November.
