Medion launches first GPS with fingerprint lock

Medion GoPal P4425

In its attempt to stand out from the typical GPS crowd, Medion today updated its GoPal GPS mapping units with the P4425. The 4.3-inch widescreen navigator is the first to include a biometric fingerprint reader built into the device for security. Users just swipe their finger to gain access, Medion boasts. The measure lets drivers leave the device in a car for brief intervals knowing that a thief could not make use of the system. It also prevents having to enter a text password using a more cumbersome touchscreen keyboard.

Outside of this feature, the P4424 represents one of Medion's mid-range devices that lacks Bluetooth but adds a Traffic Message Channel receiver for live driving conditions, voice recognition, and an FM transmitter that beams audio directions through the car's own stereo. It comes with a speed warning system and lane recommendations, and should be available in Europe as of today with prices varying by the country.
