Royaltek GPS Media Player

GPS designer Royaltek today reiterated its plan to launch the staR, a hybrid GPS device geared for entertainment as much as navigation. Besides the typical duties of route-finding and tracking, the staR will integrate the GPS position into its leisure: stargazing, games, and other software set to ship with the device will use the technology, the creator says. The handheld will also keep track of jogging and other exercise, using the distance and speed to calculate the body mass index and calorie burn for a given trip.

Complete information on Royaltek's new device is unavailable, but is known to include a 2.2-inch color LCD and a waterproof shell. The device should be fully revealed at next month's CeBIT expo. [via GPS Gazette]
