Pioneer outs 3G-connected PotterNavi GPS for cyclists

updated 03:35 pm EDT, Wed October 26, 2011

PotterNavi includes ANT+ sensor, 3G connection

Pioneer Japan has just unveiled a GPS device for cyclists, the PotterNavi. It has a 3G module and two years of service included, with access to maps, TV weather broadcast information, and other safety alerts. It's mounted in an IPX5 waterproof body and gets a 2.4-inch VGA screen.

A bike mount and cradle for the unit are included, as is an ANT+ sensor that mounts to the rear wheel and wirelessly sends speed and cadence information to the unit. A calorie counter is built inside as well. When off official paths, a basic off-road GPS waypoint system keeps users aware of their location so they can feel safe about going off-road.

The PotterNavi will cost 40,000 Yen (about $526) in Japan when it launches in February. The device isn't likely to come to North America.
