Becker Z205 PND gets 3D landscapes [Video]

Becker have unveiled their latest personal navigation device, the Z205, and while it may not look all that impressive it does have some nifty functionality.  Packed inside the 125 x 82.5 x 12.7 mm case there's a 4.3-inch touchscreen along with a TMC Pro traffic data receiver module, Bluetooth and 4GB of storage.

As well as standard 2D and 3D mapping, the Becker Z205 is capable of displaying 3D views of cities and buildings, together with 3D landscapes.  There's also text-to-speech, voice control complete with voice-entered destinations, traffic analysis based on historical trends, road signs and lane guidance.

Preloaded is mapping data - courtesy of Navteq - for 42 European countries, and there's also a media player with image/audio/video playback and a microSD card slot for adding memory.  The Becker Z205 PND is likely to see a launch across Europe, though release date and pricing is unknown.
