garmin streetpilot look alike from china: GP78

When we first saw this little navigator from China we thought it looked just like the Garmin StreetPilot c340. The features aren’t that bad either. Called the GP78 this gps navigation system comes with SD cards with pre-installed maps on them which fit right into the SD slot on the left side of the body. On the opposite side of the body it has a mini USB port and a headphone jack. On the back side of GP78 you’ll find the integrated speaker for voice guidance, the power and the external antenna jack. On the front side of the device there’s nothing but the 3.5 inch (same size as garmin streetpilot c340) touch screen which gives it a really sharp and clean look.

It runs Microsoft WinCE.NET 4.2 on a Samsung 266 MHz processor and comes with a Li-Ion battery so you can use it on foot once you park your car. The battery will last you upto 10 hours and you can recharge it with the car adapter that comes in the box.
