iWAY 250c and 600c

Lowrance premiered its two newest personal GPS units at the opening of the SEMA show today. The mainstream iWAY 250c (pictured) is designed to be portable, Lowrance claims, and has a design not much larger than its central 3.5-inch touchscreen. Standard 2D and 3D map views are included, but the GPS system also ships with a 2GB SD card of map data for North America, ensuring that the 250c can store both the necessary routes as well as millions of points of interest across the continent. Free space on any SD card can be used to store and play MP3 songs as well as JPEG photos. Lowrance is shipping the budget iWAY for $349.

Details of the iWAY 600c follow below.

The more advanced iWAY 600c (pictured below) retains the same street maps as the 250c, but uses a 30GB laptop-class hard drive to store map data for North American coasts and rivers as well; toggling marine mode instantly shifts its focus to sea maps, warning the user about coastline depth, ports, and restricted areas. The display in turn is increased to a 5-inch model with a 640x480 resolution. Approximately 5GB of the hard drive's space is available for MP3 or Ogg music, and the system itself sports an FM transmitter for broadcasting both music and navigation instructions to a vehicle's stereo. Lowrance currently ships this model for $799.
