Road Angel Navigator 7000

European mapping company Road Angel this morning unveiled the Navigator 7000. The handheld can receive its updates wirelessly through Bluetooth, according to NaviGadget, and thus saves the trouble of plugging in a USB cable or copying files to an SD card. Its portable nature is also a specialty: in addition to a size scarcely larger than its 3.5-inch touchscreen, the Navigator 7000 runs for up to 8 hours on a lithium-ion battery and is waterproof against heavy splashes.

Built for Britain and Europe, the 7000 can search for primary schools, warn of speed cameras, and notify the driver of the congestion toll areas found in London. MP3 and photo playback are also part of the system. Road Angel offers its latest nav unit for 300 ($584) after taxes.
