Digital TV-ready GPS unit

The Japanese branch of Clarion is near launching the MAX9700DT, an extremely high-end GPS unit. Particularly important is its support for two digital TV formats: the 1Seg mobile format, and DMB-T for higher quality, where accessible. Should that not be enough, it also has DVD and MiniDisc players, SD and Memory Stick slots, and a 40GB hard drive which can be loaded with MP3, WMA and ATRAC files. iPods can be connected and controlled through the seven-inch touchscreen.

Actual navigation benefits from the rare feature of a first-person 3D view, complete with textured buildings in select regions. 2D windows provide overviews and guidance. The 9700DT will go on sale in June for 341,250 yen ($2,855). [via]
