IGN Evadeo Trail GPS

The French organization Institut Geograpique National is now shipping its unique Evadeo GPS tracker for both drivers and pedestrians. The Evadeo is one of the first GPS units to provide route information beyond roads, says the institution, and ships with two 1GB SD cards that combined store not only vehicle routes but also IGN maps of park paths, main trails, and small village roads for all of France. Owners living in urban areas can also switch the Evadeo to a special pedestrian mode that clearly labels street names and shows walking-oriented street directions. The 3.5-inch touchscreen handheld also has a built-in location search tool that can find both human and natural landmarks. IGN ships the device for 449 ($576 US).
