Fujitsu Siemens unveiled the co-developed Pocket LOOX N100 to the U.S. market at the 2007 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES). This light, compact, and ultra-portable industry first redefines the personal navigation device (PND) product category by offering a first-rate navigation experience with new on-the-go features and functionality.

Designed for dynamic lifestyles – business people, over-scheduled soccer moms, anyone on the go – the Pocket LOOX measures 0.6 inches (16mm) thin and weighs 3.9 ounces (110 grams), making it the thinnest and smallest multifunctional PND available. This pocket-sized device delivers heavyweight performance in a featherweight package as the perfect travel companion. Featuring the largest display in its class, the Pocket LOOX 2.8 inch color screen is comparable to its heftier predecessors. The device, powered by a five-hour rechargeable lithium-ion battery, also sports a built-in MP3 player, video player, photo viewer and computer games in a trendy design that can hang off a keychain. The Pocket LOOX guarantees one-click operation; directed by NAVIGON’s customized MobileNavigator (MN) Premium software featuring touch screen capabilities and a multilingual user interface.

The Pocket LOOX is the first U.S. device to leverage the advantages of NAVIGON’s MN Premium software for rich and easy-to-use, audio-guided navigation. The company’s category-leading map display provides lane information, point-of-interest searches with branded icons along the route, speed limit information and warnings, road signs, and GPS auto-follow in tunnels – features typically reserved for high-end products. General availability of the Pocket LOOX begins at major U.S. retailers in Spring 2007 for an MSRP of $499.
