August 28, 2008 Sony announced four new nav-u personal navigation devices this week but it’s the top-of-the-range NV-U94T model that caught our eye as it adds new features such as a photo viewer, audio/video player and stereo Bluetooth technology for streaming audio and making hands-free phone calls using compatible devices. In terms of what it was built for, the NV-U94T offers a unique, hardware-based solution that consists of an acceleration sensor, a pressure sensor and a gyro sensor that together can calculate the vehicle’s current position based on the last known GPS location. The result is a more consistent and accurate position that helps provide interruption-free guidance when tall buildings or dense foliage obscure satellite reception or when it’s blocked altogether when underground.  Read More
