Goodyear dives into GPS market
It is interesting to note that Goodyear, the company that manufactures vehicle tires, is finally taking the plunge into the GPS market. The folks at Goodyear have already inked a deal with The NCC, and the result of this alliance would be eight rugged GPS navigation devices to be paraded at CES next week. Expect features such as Bluetooth connectivity, a remote control, hands-free phone calls, as well as tying in with MSN Direct to get the latest in live traffic updates, local gas prices and weather reports on your dashboard. These devices are also tipped to come with 4.3″ touchscreen displays, stereo speakers, text-to-speech navigation, audio and video playback, 2GB of internal memory and an SD memory card slot for expansion purposes. No idea on how much they cost though.
