Cool GPS Devices for Everyone

 

As the shirt-pocket GPS market continues to grow, so does the number of products vying for your attention-and your cash. The newest entry in the portable navigation category is the WorldNav 3100 from TeleType, which is available in two versions: Deluxe...

Text-to-speech function. Sensitive SiRF Star III receiver. Extensive POI database (Premium version).

Reflective screen. Issues with each of the media players. Lack of 2D north view. Limited information displayed in map view.

TeleType is moving in the right direction with the new WorldNav 3100 GPS. The extensive POI database, text-to-speech function, and low price make the WorldNav 3100 worth considering.

TeleType GPS WorldNav 3100 Portable GPS - Premium Edition

 

Over the past few years, I have become a huge fan of GPS systems. Most of the units I test are aftermarket add-ons for PDA's, Smart Phones and Handhelds - but the trend seems to be shifting to fully functional, portable all in one units. One of the...

My review unit was a very early production unit (if not pre-production) and I saw improvements with the first software update.

Worst thing I've bought for a long time

 

The Deluxe did not work properly, and I paid $50 additional to replace the Premium. The software is very arwkard to use. My son borrowed my car once, he graduated form an IVY league school major in Computer Science, he could not figure out . Because...

None I can think of

Software not user friendly. The rechargeable battery is totally dead after only about 10 hours of use, and the user can not open the unit and replace the battery ourself

Lost in America

 

This is a terrible product I experienced many Phantom turns. The advertised 12 million POI's are a fabrication. I live in a major metropolitan area and this thing was very confused. I sent it back. And by the way the garmin base model worked very well.

Many features some even partialy work

Can you say "I'me lost

Consumer review by:

Much more then I expected

 

This GPS unit helped me a lot traveling through upper Michigan. Directions were very loud and clear. Coming just on time indicating when to turn and on which road. The famle voice announcing the name of streets is very nice. I would recommend this...

Supoer bright screen. Perfect directions

Enclosure is not a hard car

Consumer review by:

Excellent value

 

Great product for the money. I got mine on sale, $259 (they also offer a lower end model for $199). The Premium has text to speech so it says the name of the street to turn onto. It also gives 12 million business listings and POIs which can be searched...

text to speech, 12+ million businesses and POI w/phone number lookup

A little slow in POI search
