Nextar SNAP5 and SNAP7

Relatively small GPS maker Nextar today launched a pair of larger GPS units for drivers. The 5-inch SNAP5 and 7-inch SNAP7 both pay unusual attention to ergonmics with thinner, 0.7 inch displays and a unique magnetic car mount that keeps the navigators in place while still making it easy to remove them and keep them safe when the car isn't in use. In software, their advantage revolves around a more detailed 3D mode that includes polygonal versions of major buildings and landmarks.

The company otherwise outfits the SNAP models with slightly above average GPS features such as spoken street names, MP3 playback through stereo speakers and JPEG photo viewing. Nextar gives the GPS units SD cards preloaded with American and Canadian driving maps and plans to sell them at comparatively low prices for their screen sizes, with the SNAP5 to be priced at $300 and the SNAP7 at $350. Either isn't slated to ship until spring 2009.
