Sanyo rolls out widescreen Easy Street GPS duo

updated 09:20 am EDT, Wed July 18, 2007

Sanyo Easy Street 4070

Sanyo expanded its still fledgling Easy Street line of navigators with two new models that pack better-than-average features for the price. Both the NVM-4050 and NVM-4070 offer a 4-inch wide touchscreen that improves on the standard-aspect 3.5-inch screens often seen at the price. They also feature Bluetooth for hands-free calling (including sending contacts and photos to the GPS device) and make it a point to include full maps for Canada and the US, including Hawaii and Puerto Rico. Either player also includes MP3 and WMA music playback either from free space on internal memory or on SD cards.

The NVM-4050 represents the baseline and includes all the above features at $400. Choosing the $500 NVM-4070 brings the option of a live traffic subscription with auto re-routing around busy roads. Media support is also upgraded to include JPEG photo viewing, MPEG-4 video, and an FM transmitter for beaming sound into the car without rewiring the car itself. Sanyo says both should be available today.
