Sanyo intros three PNDs

Sanyo on Wednesday announced it will soon launch a trio of advanced in-car entertainment and portable GPS devices, including the 7-inch Gorilla NVA-GS1580FT that doubles as a car entertainment center and the portable 7-inch NV-SD750FT, as well as the 5.2-inch NV-SB510DT. The first two use 4GB solid-state drives as well as a dual 12Seg/1Seg TV tuner built-in to catch live broadcasts in the company's native Japan. Apart from the smaller touchscreen size, the NV-SB510DT supports only a 1Seg TV tuner.

All three share Sanyo's EcoDrive functionality that teaches drivers how to get the best fuel economy from their cars by changing their driving habits. In addition, the new devices will reproduce MP3 and WMA audio files as well as JPEG photos stored on SD cards, with the NVA-SD750FT adding an optical drive to read and rip CDs, as well as play back DVDs. The SD650FT is also equipped with a 43Wx4 amplifier to drive the car's speakers.

The Sanyo NVA-GS1580FT is priced at the equivalent of about $1,570, while the NV-SD750FT costs $1,320. The NV-SB510DT will cost about $760. All three are due to launch in Japan on November 20th; Sanyo releases GPS units in the US but by necessity has to strip out 1Seg, which isn't supported in the West. [via Akihabara]
