Maxtek 7-inch GPS Unit

Maxtek is aiming to upset the GPS business by launching its MNT-7T GPS unit. The system offers a 7-inch touchscreen even though its features are made with basic needs in mind, letting even newcomers to GPS view and interact with maps at a comfortable viewing distance from the screen. 512MB of onboard memory stores map data for the continental US at any given time but is supplemented by an SD card slot, which loads data for the rest of the US included on a bundled DVD.

The device is equally relevant as a media player and loads photos as well as MP3/WAV/WMA tracks from the card slot. An RCA video input further transforms the player into a substitute TV screen for DVD players, iPods, and video games. The MNT-7T is already on sale at $365, undercutting the prices of many smaller systems. [via GPS Gazette]
