V7 GPS and 22-inch LCD

Display maker V7 late yesterday introduced both a GPS receiver and a computer display aimed at its relatively untapped US audience of budget users. The Navigator 1000 (pictured) distinguishes itself primarily through international support, V7 says. A full 23 languages can be used for both on-screen navigation and voice commands. The 1000 otherwise shares many common features of GPS units in its class including a 3.5-inch touchscreen, a lithium-ion battery for use away from the car, and a media player that supports MP3 music, photos, and AVI/MPEG-4 videos. V7 plans to ship the Navigator 1000 through Ingram Micro in early 2007 for $340.

Details and a photo of the company's new computer screen can be found after the jump.



Revealed at the same time is the R22W02, a 22-inch widescreen LCD. The display emphasizes its core functions only and has a 1680x1050 display with a 5ms response time and a capable 700:! contrast ratio. Input is focused on computing with DVI and VGA ports. Importantly, however, the display promises an uncharacteristically low price of $349 and should be available today from resellers associated with Ingram Micro.
