If you want to enter the crazy world of satellite navigation, but can’t let go of your stylish UBD colour scheme, the Navig8r G series devices from Laser offer the ability to customise the appearance of the maps to resemble your favourite old-school street directory. No, us neither…
Outside of that groundbreaking feature, there’s a pretty standard couple of devices here: Text to speech, 2D and 3D views, 3.5 and 4.3-inch screens for the G35 and G43 models respectively and a 30-day trial of SpeedAlert. The maps come from Aussie company Metroview, who I’ve never heard of before, although that doesn’t necessarily mean anything.
The key issue here though is price: $169 for the G35 and $229 for the G43.
