New Nextar Q4 GPS units
Nextar recently added the Q4-01 and Q4-02 to its Q-series line-up of portable navigation devices. Both devices are simpler, less expensive versions of the previously unveiled Q4-MD that features MSN Direct access over wireless data networks. Both new devices have a 4.3-inch touchscreen and deliver voice-guided directions via their NAVTEQ maps.
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.
