LG prepares LN505 GPS unit

Coming in February is the LN505, a new GPS unit from LG. The product is clearly aimed at a more affordable price bracket, having just a 276MHz processor, and none of the music or video abilities of some of its rivals. It can however display BMP, GIF and JPEG images, and comes with a 512MB of ROM, as well as an SD slot and a Mini-USB 1.1 port. The onboard software is Destinator 6, which pulls its data from a SiRFstar III receiver with a built-in antenna. The display is a 3.5-inch QVGA touchscreen with 260,000 colors. LG is currently targeting the product at France, but it seems likely to spread to other countries by the end of the year. The French price is set at 199 ($258).
