Even though there are million of GPS devices out there, Korean company UMID has come up with a pretty innovative GPS-capable gadget that also includes... breathalyzer functions. Although the manufacturer didn't provide too many details about the way the device analyzes your breath, it's obvious the unit targets especially drivers, aiming to improve safety during, or better yet before driving.

UMID's F1 UMPC is actually a pretty advanced device sporting HSDPA functions and WiBro (WiMAX) connectivity. In addition, it features a VIA C7-M 1.2 GHz processor plus 512 MB/1GB of RAM (depending on the version you choose) as well as 30/60 GB (also depending on the variant) hard disk storage capacity.

In case WiMAX and and HSDPA functions are not enough for you, manufacturers have also included WiFi 802.11 b/g connectivity, allowing you to connect to a wireless network straight from your car (connecting to a network while in motion is quite difficult if you want to get a decent signal but producers still think this is a great feature). The Bluetooth 2.0 support lets you pair the device with the mobile phone for initiating and answering calls while remaining focused on the road.

The 7-inch LCD touchscreen display supports a maximum resolution of 800x480 which, in combination with the DMB TV tuner, can prove to be an excellent in-car entertainment system.

The UMID F1 comes with pre-installed Windows XP Home Edition which means owners can do a lot of different things on the device, including playing games, watching movies or listening to their favorite music stored on the hard-disk, all of them through a simple and familiar interface.

Unfortunately, there are no pricing details but keep your eyes peeled on autovolution for further information.
