Samsung presented its STT-D370 Bluetooth Navigator which is the first GPS system that connects to cell phones via Bluetooth, as shown by a pretty (South Korean?) girl in the photo. The microphone and speaker phone, embedded in Bluetooth Navigator enable the users to make or receive phone calls and SMS text messages, without using a mobile phone.
The Bluetooth Navigator also offers a built-in Real 3D map developed by Samsung, ensuring that the driver sees the road ahead in crystal-clear 3D graphics. The latest maps can be updated through Anycall Land ( www.anycall.com ).
The STT-D370 also offers a dynamic navigation feature, which uses TPEG (a transportation information service based on terrestrial DMB data broadcasting) information updated every five minutes via a terrestrial DMB data channel to select the optimal route by incorporating road situations in real time.
The highly portable Bluetooth Navigator with a 3.7-inch LCD and 16.8mm thickness, together with its long-lasting battery allows the user to enjoy navigator features and the various additional features it offers not only in vehicles but also while walking.
The Samsung STT-D370 includes various multimedia functionalities, such as high-resolution Personal Media Players (PMP), MP3, and photo albums; as well as a translator, an electronic dictionary, a file viewer. It also supports SD memory card.
The Bluetooth Navigator is currently available in Korea at a price of around 600 USD.
