New Packard Bell GPS units

Packard Bell has announced two new GPS car receivers, a part of its Compasseo 800 series. Both feature four-inch touchscreens, half an inch larger than the 500- and 600-series units, as well as integrated TMC traffic information; the 830 will have improved traffic detail, and built-in Bluetooth.

Specifications are otherwise identical between the new products, with SiRFstar III receivers, 64MB of RAM, and SD/MMC slots for permanent storage. They are also capable of playing AVI, MP4 and WMV movies, in addition to MP3 music, but the screen is limited to 65,000 colors. The 810 will be available in Europe by the end of May, bundled with a 1GB SD card for 299 ($406); the 830 will ship in June with a 2GB card for 449 ($609). [via NaviGadget]
