Blaupunkt TravelPilot 500 and 700 coming next month

Aug 27, 2008

If you need a new GPS system or simply like to stay current with these things, two new Blaupunkt navigation systems are coming next month. The TravelPilot 500 and 700 will have interactive voice controls among other new features.

Both models will have Bluetooth and interactive voice controls, while just the 700 will have Internet access. One thing that sets these devices apart from others on the market is the real-time video navigation and traffic sign recognition. With a video camera on the back, these TravelPilot models take in live footage of the upcoming road. This is meant to make looking at the GPS map more safe because it is overlaid on an actual, real-time image of the road in front of you. It can also tell you if you're going over the speed limit.

You can get your hands on your very own Blaupunkt next month. The TravelPilot 500 will cost $490 and the 700 will cost $740.
