XRoad V4050 US-bound

The FCC has just given its seal of approval to the XRoad V4050, a GPS navigator being imported by Capoint. The device was originally released abroad as the Takara GP43, and is notable mainly for its 4.3-inch touchscreen, which has a 480x272 resolution with an unusually high 16.5 million colors. It runs on a 400MHz processor, and supports playback of JPG images, MP3 audio, and MPEG-4 video.

Internal storage has not been mentioned, but most data should be transferrable via SD card or Mini-USB, with Bluetooth support allowing unknown device functions. No prices or dates have been cited for the 4050 either, but the GP43 is on sale in Europe for approximately €500 ($715). [via NaviGadget]
