The new offerings will include the 4.3-inch VIA 1405 and 1435, along with the 5.0-inch VIA 1405 and 1435. Each of the devices features a slim design paired with an EasyPort mount that adapts to windshield or dash mounts and a range of viewing angles.
The 1435 and 1535 both feature a brushed-aluminum finish, while the 1405 and 1505 are built with basic black housings. Optional features include voice recognition, Bluetooth integration, spoken street names, and lane guidance information.
The VIA series will arrive in the North American market sometime in the middle of the year. Suggested prices start at $169.
