Navman has announced today three new devices of the iCN series. The two top of the line are the iCN720 and iCN750. Those two new units have 4 inch (480×272 pixels) LCD widescreen displays and use the second-generation SiRF Star III chipset. The most impressive of all the features of the iCN720 and the iCN750 is that they feature a new technology called Navpix. So what is NavPIX? Both the devices have an integrated 1.3 MP camera that allows the user to take pictures of any place they want. This pictures are tagged with the coordinates of the place that the photo was taken and can be used as custom POIs. Users can upload their Navpix pictures at Navman’s website and share them with each other. This is a brilliant idea in my opinion and as the database of these Navpix POIs gets larger it will be an extremely useful resource for travallers around the world.
Both the units are expected to start shipping in May with a price of 599€ (£399) for the iCN720 and 699€ (£549) for the iCN750
