GPS is a time-saving device for drivers, but once you step outside that car—you are typically on your own. Not so with the Royal Expedition Navigation System.
This touchscreen display is large enough so that you can get accurate directions to any destination, but compact enough to take on the go. After all, who wants to walk endlessly in inclement weather, depending only on the kindness of strangers?
The unit includes walking directions to any address in the U.S. or Canada, and two million points of interest—as well as their phone numbers.
Screen options include, Night Navigation, Map and Search visuals. While you walk, you can also have your own personal soundtrack, courtesy of the unit’s built-in MP3 player and 2GB of memory. It supports MP3, WMA, WAV music files as well as JPG, PNG, GIF and BMP photo files.
The Royal Expedition Navigation System is available now for $249.99.
