5” and 7” models are just 0.7” thick and feature touch-screen displays, stereo speakers, and text-to-speech as well as maps of US and Canada; Units to be unveiled at 2008 SEMA

Note: Nextar products will be on display in the Mobile Electronics area of SEMA in Booth #10613 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Nextar™, a designer and marketer of bold and new consumer electronic products with mass appeal, is adding two models to its line of slim SNAP GPS navigation systems. The models, a space-saving 0.7” thick with Nextar’s magnetic docking station, are the SNAP5 with 5” touch-screen display and the SNAP7 with 7” touch-screen display. Both come with built-in stereo speakers and text-to-speech (English) technology. The units join the SNAP3, which has a 3.5” touch-screen display. All models offer maps of the entire US and all of Canada. Nextar will introduce the two new SNAP family members at the upcoming 2008 SEMA show in Booth #10613 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

“With the addition of these two models, our slim SNAP navigation systems line offers displays for a wide-range of needs,” commented Eddy Zheng, Nextar founder. “At just 0.7” thick with Nextar’s advanced magnetic docking station, these new units fit in very narrow locations. Slim design, choice of screen size, complete coverage of two countries, and lots of terrific features make our SNAP lineup the perfect solution for the most discriminating buyer.”

Large, clear, colorful images of maps from all 50 states and Canada are shown on both units’ 4:3 TFT touch-screen displays. Maps are provided on one 2GB SD card for easy installation. Text-to-speech technology clearly pronounces road names in English. Software support is provided for English, French, and Spanish, the three most spoken languages in the covered areas. A special automatic night mode offers additional screen lighting for easy-on-the-eye viewing. Voice-guided directions with turn-by-turn voice prompts are clearly audible through built-in stereo speakers.

Users of either of the two new Nextar SNAP navigation systems will have no trouble locating any number of hotels, shopping centers, gas stations, and restaurants along their routes, as each provides millions of points of interest. If a user misses a turn, a new route is recalculated instantly. Digital map data is supplied by Tele Atlas, a leading global provider of digital maps and dynamic content that power many of the world’s most essential navigation and location-based services.

Both units have the capability of playing MP3 files and displaying JPEG images (a required SD card for these functions is not included). Addresses for favorite destinations can be stored in either model. Other features include 2D and 3D map-viewing modes, a SD card slot for additional memory, and a built-in antenna. A lightweight, built-in rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery supplies power.

SNAP5 measures 5.8” x 4” x 0.7”, SNAP7 measures 7.8” x 4.9” x 0.7”. Each weighs approximately 2.6 pounds.

Accessories for both units include: AC/DC adapter, car adapter, USB cable, protection pouch, suction cup, and a stylus/touch pen.
