IFA 2007 – Route 66 MAXI and MINI GPS videos

Chris Davies - Aug 31, 2007

Satnav seems to be high on the agenda at IFA 2007, with the major players flaunting their latest wares.  TomTom arguably sets the standard, but one company European company still trying to get its foot in the door is Route 66.  Vincent stopped by their booth and shot some footage of the new MAXI and MINI units, the former with a 4.3-inch widescreen and the latter a 3.5-inch standard aspect screen, complete with Lonely Planet guides, MP3 player and photo viewer.

In an attempt to differentiate themselves from the competition, Route 66 are offering free map updates until 2008, free lifetime subscription to the TMC traffic update service in Europe (both models have a built-in receiver) and free safety camera database with on-the-go alerts.
