LG LN790 GPS Unit
Rounding out its series of announcements, LG has expanded its LN700 GPS units with a new top model. The LN790 is both the largest of the series with a 4.3-inch widescreen and also the most advanced, bringing in support for Traffic Message Channel data for live route congestion info in 50 major North American urban areas and Bluetooth for hands-free speakerphone use. Passengers can also play music or watch videos when the map function isn't immediately needed. Map information is also comprehensive and includes maps for all US states, its Puerto Rican territory, and Canada.
Maps come preloaded on an SD card that ships with the system, which will be available in North American shops in September at a price of $699.
