NCSNavi Launches Portable GPS/TV

GPS units are popular devices nowadays, with several car manufacturers installing navigation devices on the majority of their models as standard. However, GPS makers around the world struggle to design more or less advanced devices capable of providing last generation features through simple interfaces. The best example is given by NCSNavi, a Taiwan-based company, which has just launched the ntv46 multimedia navigator, a GPS unit offering both navigation functions and portable TV features.

The TV support is based on a DVB-T receiver and a 4.3-inch TFT LCD touch supporting screen that lets you stream your favorite TV channel while stuck in traffic jams. Besides the “excellent TV image quality”, as mentioned on NCSNavi website, the embedded speakers are said to provide very high quality sound so watching movies in your car may prove to be a pretty entertaining activity.

Feature highlights also include a built-in GPS, providing driving directions on the LCD display, multimedia player, high-speed Samsung CPU with 400 Mhz plus SD card support that allows owners to expand the storage capacity using a regular SD card (SDHC also supported).

And because battery is extremely important for such a device, the portable GPS/TV is powered by a lithium-ion battery capable of providing up to several hours or continuously video play in TV mode.

Buying the whole ntv46 package also brings you several accessories, including a vehicle bracket, a car adapter, a travel adapter a tool CD and a quick start guide that provides quick instructions on using the device. Unfortunately, there's no word on its price yet but the device is due to release in the next few months.
