Sat-Nav specialists AvMap have announced their latest standalone GPS, the Geosat 6 Drive Safe, which can not only guide you but chide you if you’ve drunk too much. Fitted with an alcohol sensor, users simply blow onto the device to get a reading and advice as to whether they’re safe to drive or not. Input is all courtesy of the 4.8-inch wide-aspect touchscreen, with spoken guidance prompts and Bluetooth for using the Geosat 6 as a mobile phone hands-free.
Originally only available as part of a Peugeot promotion in Italy, the Geosat 6 is now on general sale in Europe. In addition to the alcohol sensor, it also has a “smart magnetic mount” which, when rotated, automatically switches the display from portrait to landscape. An SD card slot allwos for extra mapping and media to be loaded.
Measuring 133.6 x 83.4 x 21mm and weighing 270g, the AvMap Geosat 6 Drive Safe is available later this month, priced at around €450 ($702). It uses TeleAtlas mapping data.
