+MaxEntropy Posted September 23, 2003 Share Posted September 23, 2003 I just saw an advertisement on TV for a thing called an Auto Map. It seems to be a GPS with aotorouting. It doesn't have a graphic display, rather it has a simple single-line text display and a keypad. The deal is that you punch in where you are going and it'll route you to the destination with text and voice cues. It also has a database of points of interest similar to my Garmin unit so just tell it you want McDonalds and it'll route you there. The amazing thing was that it cost only $40 and that includes a 'free' car vacuum. I wonder how they made it so cheaply, what did they sacrifice? If this thing is reasonably rugged and reliable, it just might be worth giving out to chronically lost people like my wife. Has anyone seen the ads or seen one of the units?
