GPS handheld delivers real-time satellite weather

This is one handy device, full of functionality sure to please the discriminating nav-fiend.

It’s the ONIX 400, a portable GPS device from Bushnell that has as its most noticeable feature is the real-time XM WX weather info. It goes without saying that XM Radio is available as well. And for those moments when you just can’t live without sports stats and scores, no matter how far you are from civilization, the ONIX 400 can deliver those, too. Can stock quotes and horoscopes be far behind?

“The ONIX 400 will be the only outdoor device that provides personalized, localized weather content delivery integrated within the GPS map environment.

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.”

The internal memory is 64MB, microSD cards will let you go way beyond that, which the device also uses for all those map and other data needs. The display is a modest 3.5 inches and an even more modest 320×240, but you don’t need much more than that if all you’re looking at is maps and text.

Look for this product and its pricing this summer.
