Sticking with the GPS theme, my friend Sean sent me a review of the new GPS model ONIX 400CR by Bushnell.
Bushnell teamed up with XM Satellite Radio to provide satellite weather and radar superimposed right on top of your map for up-to-date views of the weather situation around you.
The ONIX 400 will also play XM Radio so if things get lonely out there you can listen to your favorite love songs or grab the latest news.
The handheld features a split screen allowing users to monitor what XM content is playing while listening or viewing weather data. The waterproof portable handheld unit is ergonomically designed to fit into the palm of the hand for easy use in any type of weather. The ONIX 400 has the ability to layer weather information on the screen along with aerial and satellite photos and topography maps for the ultimate in real world navigation.
Other features include enhanced sports scoreboard with user interface, sports statistics and scores; an extra large full color LCD screen (3.5"; 320x240 pixel); imbedded 64MB Micro SD card for data and map services; and rechargeable Li-Ion battery.
