Seamless WiFi S-Gen UMPC gets Garmin GPS

Seamless WiFi S-Gen UMPC gets Garmin GPS

It may have been pretty quiet from Seamless WiFi since we first saw their S-XGen UMPC back in September 2006, but the company would like us to know that they've not been sitting on their hands all this time.  Apparently Seamless have been "very cautiously" deciding on GPS software for the UMPC - now renamed the S-Gen - and have settled on Garmin's Mobile XT app.

Garmin Oregon rugged GPS range made official

Garmin's new Oregon handheld GPS range, the existence of which was tipped earlier this week when product descriptions hit the online stores, has been officially confirmed by the company.  Five models are available, ranging from the the basic Oregon 200 and shaded relief-mapped Oregon 300, to three 400-series devices each tailored to different outdoor activities.  Each model has a 3-inch color touchscreen and water & shock resistant casing.

Details of Garmin's upcoming GPS range refresh have been revealed at Buy.com, suggesting a new range of handheld GPS receivers.  The Oregon 200 will include a 3-inch color touchscreen (that's outdoor-readable), high-sensitivity GPS, electronic compass, barometric altimeter and temperature sensor.  Map data will be courtesy of a 3D basemap as well as a digital elevation model, so hills shouldn't be too much of a surprise, and the Oregon is waterproof.

Navigon 2100 Max – thin, light, and easy to use and I’ve got it for review

Navigon 2100 Max – thin, light, and easy to use and I’ve got it for review

Navigon is quickly rising to the top in the Personal Navigation Device market, even superseding TomTom and Garmin in many areas. Their latest PND is the 2100 Max, which is coincidentally one of the few upgradeable GPS units on the market. It also has a 4.3-inch Widescreen, Text-To-Speech functionality, lane guide assistance and speed warnings along with a fairly comprehensive list of Points of Interest; I mean there were more than a couple points listed in the little town I live in.

Garmin Nuvifone hands-on at Mobile World Congress 08

Since the announcement of Nuvifone by Garmin, Vince and I have been very interested in seeing the device personally. While I was unable to go to Barcelona this year, Vince is taking one for the team and managed to have one on one time with the Nuvifone.

Garmin Nuvifone is the phone of my dreams

Garmin Nuvifone is the phone of my dreams

I could go on about how similar to the iPhone this phone is, but I won’t, I’ll simply summarize it by saying that I have an iPod Touch, and I love it, but I think this Garmin Nuvifone would more than fill the smartphone void in my digital life. It has a proprietary Garmin OS, HSDPA, Quad-band GSM, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 3.5” touchscreen (not sure if its multi-touch, but that definitely is the same size screen as the iPhone).

CES 2008: Garmin Forerunner 405 Watch

Garmin showed off it’s Forerunner 405 watch and I must say it’s pretty awesome, and coming from someone who hates watches that’s saying something. Since it’s from Garmin, it is, of course, GPS enabled but it also has a lot of other good features like speed, distance and heart rate track.
