World's First PDA With GPS Navigation Hits Stores
GPS India unveiled this week iQue 3600, the world’s first personal digital assistant (PDA) with integrated GPS (Global Positioning System) technology for the Indian market.
Based on the Palm OS 5 platform, the iQue 3600 has created a new utility in the PDA market by combining both organization and navigation into a single device and bringing the benefits of GPS location technology to new and existing PDA users.
The PDA is specially designed for business travelers and tourists. Users can look up an address or appointment on the iQue 3600 and navigate to it using the mapping function. The progress is presented digitally on the device’s 320×480 pixel TFT color display.
The device is expected to enhance PDA functions a step further, by adding features such as locating hotels or places of tourist interest on the hand held device. Similarly, entertainment locations in each city as well as locating unfamiliar addresses in a foreign city will now be possible without a hitch.
The Garmin iQue 3600 is available at a suggested price of Rs 55,000.
