One of the nicest features in is Google Maps Navigation. In a nutshell, it’s Google Maps with turn-by-turn GPS navigation, and voice guidance. Google has put together a video that introduces Google Maps Navigation, which we’ve embedded above, but there are some of the features that stand out to us:

  • Live traffic: Since Google Maps can show you traffic info, it’s obviously built-in to Google Maps Navigation, at no extra cost.
  • Routes always current: When you search for directions, Google Maps Navigation searches the cloud, and gives you the best current route based on the most recent data
  • Layers: You can overlay different types on data over your maps, like restaurants, gas stations, and more.
  • Live street view: This is just awesome. You can use the Google Street View feature to get a fantastic visual of your surroundings while driving
  • FREE!: Google Maps Navigation is free. That includes the GPS, the live traffic data, and the always updated maps. That is a big deal.

The first handset to ship with , and thusly Google Maps Navigation, will be the .


Loc8u Num8The Num8 from Lok8u (pronounced “locate-you”) is designed for parents who want to know where their children roam.  This locator device is concealed inside an ordinary child’s wristwatch, and a parent can follow their kid virtually via mobile phone or computer.  Users also have the option of setting up a “virtual fence.”  If a child with the Num8 steps outside this “safe zone,” the parents will be notified electronically.  The Num8 will also notify the parents if the device is removed for any reason. 

Of course, this security has a price.  The device is about 149 Euros ($245,) and the location services range from about 4.99-19.99 Euros ($8-33,) depending on what type of service you want.

Magellan RoadMate 1700

The Magellan Roadmate 1700, the latest from the company, aims to impress with its 7-inch screen.  It features 6 million points of interest, text-to-speech, and multiple point routing capability - all standard fare for a GPS nowadays. It’ll include maps of North America, AAA Tour Book, and lane assistance as well. All of that is just child’s play when compared to the super huge screen, though.

Amber Alert GPS 2GFor those parents that are nervous about their kids, and really want to know where their children are, then they should probably purchase the Amber Alert 2G device.  It works as a GPS beacon, which allows not-so tech savvy parents text to find out the exact location of their kid.  True, I’m not certain whether a longitude and latitude will help, but the “Breadcrumbing” feature allows them to track their steps like Billy from the Family Circus.  The Amber Alert costs about $379.99, with monthly plans being $9.99 and $59.99.
