JVC GPS KV-PX9
JVC has announced the are jumping on the GPS navigation bandwagon with the JVC KV-PX9 GPS. The device features a 3.5 inch touch screen display with a 20 GB drive that allows for GPS navigation as well as playing movies and audio files.
“We designed JVC’s first offering in portable navigation to be so much more than just a database of maps and directions. The KV-PX9 can be taken wherever you go to listen to music and play videos whenever and wherever you want,” said Gary DeFeo, General Manager, JVC Company of America’s Mobile Electronics Division.
With the JVC KV-PX9 (say that ten times fast) you get 7 GB to store your movies, music, and pictures while 13 GB is dedicated for maps and over 13 million POI. You can transfer your media (WMA, MP3, WMV, ASF, AVI, or JPEG) to the GPS system via USB 2 or SD cards. The JVC KV-PX9 also includes an anti-shock system to protect the hard drive in the event the device is dropped, very similar to the system used to protect hard drives in Apple laptops.
Expect to pay about $800 for this device when it arrives in March.
