Netropa IntelliNav 3

Netropa has escalated its efforts to win the GPS business by launching the IntelliNav 3, part of a new line of mapping devices from the company for 2007. The 3.5-inch touchscreen unit represents much of the line and focuses around an exceptionally large map database: where most GPS units ship with 1GB or less of information, the 3-series ships with a 2GB SD card loaded with 6 million points of interest in over 100 categories. The space also touches on regions rarely covered by most GPS units, expanding outside of the continental US and Canada to cover Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Free room on the card allows MP3 music and photos for longer trips.

Other features extend to 2D and 3D viewing modes, a pedestrian mode for finding foot paths while using the 3-hour battery, and the ability to create alternate routes based on typical traffic patterns or attempts to avoid specific roads. The IntelliNav 3 will join the 3.5-inch 2-series as well as the 4.3-inch 4 and 5 models when they launch soon. Prices and exact release dates are unavailable. [via NaviGadget]
