ViaMichelin X980T GPS

ViaMichelin has just released a new, higher-end GPS unit for those who need more advanced navigation in Europe. An update of the earlier X950 XT, the X980T has a comparatively large 4.3-inch touchscreen that the company says has enough room to display multiple real-time maps: while a 3D view shows upcoming traffic, a smaller 2D view shows the next turn so drivers can recognize its shape in advance. The X980T similarly expands on the typical point-of-interest feature by including 51,000 hotels and restaurants from the company's own Michelin Guides Europe 2006 so that travelers can make reservations at any point along the route. Built-in Bluetooth and a speaker ensure that the GPS device can double as a speakerphone. ViaMichelin says the X980T is available now for 449 ($840 US).
