Sanyo thin navigator

Sanyo on Tuesday announced it has added a new, high-feature portable navigation system to its US line-up of Easy Street devices from its home market in Japan with the Easy Street NVM-4370. The unit is less than three quarters of an inch thick and features a 4.3-inch touchscreen with a 16:9 aspect ratio that will display maps and any of its preloaded 7 million points of interest or play videos or display photos via an SD card slot. A video input lets users hook up the optional back-up camera or other sources to the NVM-4370.

The NVM-4370 offers key navigation features such as Text-to-Speech, which speaks street names when prompting users to turn, and Bluetooth connectivity that even allows users to send text messages from the NVM-4370's large touch screen display to their phone, then out to recipients. Advanced search functions let users find POIs by their proximity to their current location, along their route, or by category. A built-in FM transmitter will play the unit's stored MP3 music, the incoming phone conversation or spoken directions over nearby radios.

The lithium ion battery is good for four hours of continuous use, Sanyo claims, though that number likely decreases when MP3 music or MPEG-4 movies are playing.

The Easy Street NVM-4370 is currently available for purchase, priced at nearly $300.
