SYDNEY: Uniden has announced its first entry into the fast growing in-car navigation market with the GNS 8600 which combines GPS technology with the functionality and usefulness of a guidance aid.

A key selling point of the unit is the 5.6-inch high resolution LCD screen, which at time of release is the largest screen size for an in-car GPS on the market.
According to Uniden national marketing manager, Mark Willis, the GNS 8600 is also one of the first car navigation systems to offer a built-in early warning system, pre programmed to alert the driver to all fixed speed cameras, fixed red light cameras and black spots in Australia.

“Car navigation products represent an exciting new business category – the products offer real and practical benefits to consumers and offer retailers a high dollar, good gross profit product portfolio,” said Willis.

The GNS 8600 is available nationally to all leading electrical retailers and includes 12 months of free software and camera downloads available from the Uniden website.
