The Digitalcube i-station U7 GPS is an innovative addition to the automotive navigation market, especially in this day and age of ridiculously high gas prices. In fact, the whopping 7-inch i-station U7 uses knowledge of road systems to route you the most economical way to your destination possible. And by economical we don’t just mean the shortest. The Digitalcube unit uses a tilt-sensitive to track hills which obviously suck up more gas than driving on the flat and this unit even has knowledge of ideal driving styles which it draws on when mapping your route for you.
As if this isn’t enough, the i-station U7 features a 800 x 480 pixel touchscreen with a blue/red LED light that changes according to how impressed the device is with your driving efficiency, audio/video playback including DMB digital TV, 4GB of built-in memory, and Mappy United (what the heck is this?) mapping software with traffic info.
As cool as Digitalcube’s new i-station U7 GPS is, we won’t be seeing it in the US at the moment. But if you’re headed to Korea before the end of July, you’ll find this cool new PND on shelves priced at 398, 000KRW, or about US$398.
