New VDO Dayton GPS units

The Siemens-owned VDO Dayton has pulled the wraps off two new GPS car navigators. The PN 4000 and 6000 are high-end units featuring DVB-T tuners, allowing passengers to European TV on 16:9 widescreens. Their antennas are reportedly so sensitive than users can still receive signals at speeds up to 99mph. Additionally, users can browse program listings for the next four days, or play their own music and videos by loading an SD card.

Users can navigate in 2D or 3D views, and install optional modules (sold separately) for Bluetooth calling or RDS/TMC traffic information. The only difference between the 4000 and 6000 is size: the 4000 has a 4.3-inch touchscreen, whereas the 6000's measures 5.3 inches. No prices or release dates have been mentioned, though the units will likely remain Europe-only.
