Sanyo Gorilla GPS Units

Sanyo on Monday launched a pair of Gorilla GPS units built to handle the rigors of urban driving. Both the SB250DT and SD200DT (pictured) have doubled their storage to 2GB to contain as many as 3 million locations, including a true 3D mode with textures that help replicate the road from the driver's perspective. Each also has a 1Seg digital TV tuner for watching shows with the 4.5-inch touchscreen display. The new Gorilla line further makes a concession to eco-friendly driving, Sanyo says: ECO Drive cautions if it believes driving is unnecessarily wasteful.

The Gorilla line is separated primarily by portability. The SB250DT includes a four-hour lithium-ion internal battery for handheld use; the SD200DT is slightly thinner but relies primarily on a car charger (bundled with both GPS systems) for power, supporting outside use only through a three-hour external battery. Either map device will be ready on April 24th in Japan for $836 (SB250DT) and $587 (SD200DT). Whether or not US equivalents will be available is unconfirmed.
