harman/kardon Guide + Play

The typically audio-focused company harman/kardon has announced that it will take its first steps into the GPS market with its upcoming Guide + Play receiver. As indicated by the name, the device will feature a heavy media playback component, playing music as well as MPEG-4 and Windows Media videos on SD cards ranging up to 4GB in storage. Media browsing is expected to be more advanced than with most other GPS handhelds and will have an easy song browser that sorts by artist, genre, and other metadata instead of simply displaying folders. The company further promises a very portable system: the Guide + Play is scarcely larger than its 4-inch screen and will last an unusually lengthy 5 hours when away from a car adapter or wall outlet, according to harman/kardon. It should ship in January for $499.
