Eclipse AVN726E Navigation System debuts at CES
by Mark R
When I dropped by the Fujitsu Ten Limited/Eclipse booth at CES Unveiled last night, I saw the new AVN726E auto navigation system. When I saw that it would open and close at the touch of a button, the company had my complete attention.
The AVN726E has a 7.0 inch touchscreen, with visibility that is quite clear in both day and night modes. When it opens up, you can see a place to insert an SD card, and this is where the user can easily update their maps or insert other digital files.
Also visible on the AVN726E is a slot for CDs and DVDs, and it also has a USB port for MP3 Players. The ANV726E is also iPod ready for both audio and video playback. If you forgot to bring any entertainment for your long trip, the AVN726E is ready to use with SIRIUS and XM tuners, as well as HD Radio tuners with iTunes Tagging.
Also built into the device is Bluetooth Compatibility, and it is possible to get factory steering wheel control depending on the model of the car. There is also rear-view camera capability, and the device also incorporates anti-theft measures.
The AVN726E was named best of Innovations in its category at CES, and is expected to be released in April 2009. Unfortunately, there is no word on a price.
