Right now it’s just making the trade show rounds, so the NAVist III from Seoul-based HS Networks doesn’t have a release date or price, but it looks damn cool. Powered by dual 600 Mhz processors, the NAVist III is an in-car navigation system that integrates entertainment features reminescent of those dedicated computers are capable of.
Featuring a 7-inch screen, the double-DIN device has a DVD optical drive, and can also store audio files and photos on either an HDD or SD card. Plus it supports DivX files. There is also an AM/FM tuner, five 50 Watt speakers that blast Dolby Pro Logic and DTS supported surround sound, and Bluetooth support so you can listen to tunes wirelessly. The NAVist III also comes with an iPod cable so you browse your iTunes collection on the unit’s interface and playback its content. Finally a USB 2.0 port allows you to transfer multimedia files from your computer onto the unit’s hard disk drive.
Now we just have to wait for HS Networks to find a distributor for this bad boy, which I’m sure will cost a pretty couple of pennies.
