ViaMichelin X970T US-bound

Having first released it in Europe, ViaMichelin is now exporting its X970 GPS unit to the United States. The unit features a SiRFstar III receiver, and comes with a 2GB SD card loaded with NAVTEQ maps of the US and Canada. Users can import routes and addresses from the web, and choose between six different route types, including pedestrian, bicycle and toll-free methods. A built-in Bluetooth receiver supports hands-free calling, but those wanting traffic information will need an optional accessory and service. This is compensated for somewhat by a database with "millions" of points of interest, and special material from Michelin's Green Guide.

The 970 has a 3.5-inch touchscreen, and runs off a 400MHz processor and 64MB of RAM. No firm release date has been set, but J&R is taking pre-orders for $349. [via NaviGadget]
