Mango Magic380 GPS unit

The upcoming Magic380 by Mango Research (not pictured) is a unique GPS unit for two reasons: aside from being one of the rare devices to be usable both handheld and in a car, it calculates position entirely through software, eliminating the need for a baseband processing chip. This is said to actually improve performance, despite the absence of dedicated hardware. What it does have is NXP's swGPS Personal program, and a 32-bit Samsung processor, with ports to accept add-ons such as real-time traffic input. The size of the touchscreen is unknown, but if it resembles the Magic377, it is estimated to be about 3.5 inches.
