Garmin launches GPS Enabled iQue 3200

Garmin has introduced the iQue 3200, which joins the award-winning iQue 3600 as the only Palm Powered PDAs with fully integrated GPS technology. Both products combine the portability of a PDA and the utility of an automotive navigation system in a sleek, lightweight design.

Like the iQue 3600, which earned a Best of Innovations award at the 2003 Consumer Electronics Show, the iQue 3200 features Garmin’s Que technology. This set of applications provides the user with the benefits of GPS navigation, including pinpoint location awareness on an electronic map, automatic route generation, off-route recalculation, turn-by-turn directions and voice guidance. Que technology fully integrates organization and navigation capabilities in the iQue 3200, allowing users to attach a “location stamp” to a contact in their Address Book or an appointment in their Date Book. The user can then follow voice prompts along a series of turns to the selected location.

Thanks to a bright 320×320-pixel color display, users can see navigation data at a glance. Additional screen space is dedicated to a Graffiti area for data input. Garmin also includes an automotive navigation kit as a standard accessory that simultaneously powers the unit and recharges the battery via the power outlet in a vehicle.

Other specifications of the iQue 3200:

Operating system: Palm OS 5.2
Processor: 200-MHz Motorola DragonBall MXL
Unit size (WxHxD)/weight: 2.8″ x 5.0″ x 0.8″ / 5.2 oz.
Display information: 320×320-pixel, transflective TFT with 16-bit, color-rich display; bright white LED backlight; dedicated Graffiti writing area; and usable screen area of 3.0″ (diagonal)
Internal Memory: 32 MB SDRAM
Expandable Memory: Secure Digital slot with SDIO capability
Battery: Rechargeable lithium-ion battery

The iQue 3200 is expected to be available in early August 2004 at a suggested retail price of $535.70. It will ship standard with a MapSource City Select CD, USB recharging synchronization cradle, AC adapter, automotive windshield mount with integrated charger and speaker, installation CD with owner’s manual, and quick-reference guide.
