iNavi G1 is one of those in-car entertainment systems that never make it out of Korea and leave Westerners drooling. First off it is a GPS navigation device that can render 3D maps including 3D buildings, and even the night sky with stars and mountains in the background. The navigation system is supplemented with a geomagnetic sensor (g-sensor) to help navigate where GPS signals are weak or nonexistent such as between tall buildings and tunnels. Just like many others iNavi G1 also has a DMB receiver that lets your watch you favorite channel while navigating (who’s doing the driving?) thanks to its Picture-In-Picture capability.
iNavi G1 is also a media player supporting various formats such as MP3, AC3, AVI, ASF, WMV, MPG, MPEG, WMA, and OGG. However since there’s no on-board HDD you may wonder how to put your videos or music on to the device. Well, no worries. The iNavi has an SD memory slot as well as a USB host meaning you’ll have as much storage as your flash disks can hold.
Other features include a photo album to easily view your pics, several games, and a smart little software called ‘car diary’ to keep track of various car related expenses and other things.
And here is the best feature we left for last: The iNavi G1 is also a karaoke machine which we believe makes it the first and only device to combine GPS navigation with karaoke. Congratulations iNavi G1! via
