Dual GPS cradle brings navigation to iPhone, iPod touch

updated 04:35 pm EST, Tue November 10, 2009

Supports handhelds without built-in GPS

Dual Electronics on Tuesday revealed the XGPS300 GPS cradle, which enables an iPhone -- or the typically GPS-lacking iPod touch -- to perform turn-by-turn car navigation. The device contains its own GPS sensor, and is bundled with NavAtlas' navigation software. Other hardware features include a speaker, rechargeable battery, audio output and a mini USB port.

The XGPS300 will ship later in November and cost $180, coming bundled with a windshield mount. [via GadgetReview]

    Considering you can get full GPS units for that price...

    turn by turn free on Android

    Get an Android phone instead of an iPhone, and Google's turn by turn navigation is free

    you have to be kidding

    how insane the pricing. A new iPhone 3G, $99. The absolutely FABULOUS CoPilot Live 8 $35. Lets see, $134 for far superior over all solution, or this $180 excuse. Upgrade the damn phone.
