TomTom Eclipse AVN4430

While it has not yet officially been revealed to the public, a new car stereo and navigation system combination developed in collaboration with TomTom and Eclipse has been spotted thanks to an award the device will win at the 2009 CES show. While no official specifications on the AVN4430 have been revealed, it is likely to share many with the current ACN2210p unit. One visible upgrade is the larger 4.3-inch widescreen of the removable TomTom personal navigation unit compared to the current one's 3.5-inch screen as well as a slightly revised control layout on the host Eclipse unit's face plate.

The AVN2210p comprises an Eclipse-developed car audio receiver that takes up a double-DIN space in a car's dashboard and doubles as a dock for the TomTom personal navigation unit that can be taken along when drivers get out of the car or even used by itself in other vehicles. The product allows drivers to have hands-free phone conversations via a Bluetooth connection integrated into the receiver. The unit will support MP3 and WMA files burned onto recordable CDs, has a built-in amplifier rated at 200W (50Wx4) and a low-pass filter.

While there is no official information, the AVN4430 is expected to launch at or just after CES in mid-January, with pricing likely to be slightly higher than the AVN2210p's $500 sticker. [via GPS Review]
