Viliv flash-based GPS

The Korean-based Viliv has just uncovered the X2 Flash, its newest GPS system. The device is based on the P2, which likewise has a SiRFstar III receiver, and an identical Chocolate-like control pad; the main difference is memory, altered from a 20 or 30GB hard drive to 4 or 8GB of flash. Since this may be constraining for some users, the X2 is also one of the few GPS systems to accept SDHC cards, ranging in size from 4 to 32GB. A slot is also present for regular SD cards.

The X2 is intended to be a media powerhouse, able not only to stream DMB broadcasts but a wide variety of local formats: these include MP3, OGG and WMA music files, as well as videos coded in DivX, XviD, WMV and MPEG-2 and 4. Picture-in-picture should allow users to keep media running in the corner while navigation is running. Prices and release dates are unannounced, but the presence of a DMB tuner means the product is unlikely to visit North America. [via Akihabara News]
