Bushnell enters the GPS field with three models

Bushnell GPS Trio

Bushnell this afternoon launched its first major efforts in the GPS receiver market by introducing three new units targeted at both drivers and frequent walkers. Leading the introductions is the NAV 500 (pictured), a full-function receiver with a 3.5-inch color touchscreen that displays both road directions and pedestrian routes. Maps of Canada and the US are preloaded while the device also adds music and photo playback. The NAV 500 is already shipping for a $599 official price.

Also revealed were the ONIX 200 and ONIX 200 CR, two more portable handhelds that introduce a rare layering feature, according to Bushnell. Either model can display satellite photography overlaid with map data, providing a real-world visual reference for buildings and other landmarks. These too share built-in North American maps but shed the extra media abilities of the range-topping NAV 500. The basic ONIX 200 is shipping this month for $200 and sports a 160x240 grayscale screen; the CR version adds a double-length 320x240 color screen for improved results and will ship in February. Pricing remains unknown.
