digital camera with GPS navigation from Altek


Taiwanese Altek just announced a GPS integrated digital camera. The current model will have 8MP resolution and will feature a 3″ touch screen display.

The idea is pretty simple; record the exact coordinates and time stamp of each picture in the image data, which than can be interpreted using Geotate’s software. In addition you can also use free web services such as Google Earth, Maps, Flickr to annotate your images and even show your friends and family the route you’ve taken during your trip.

What’s quite unique about Altek’s GPS navigation digital camera is that it can actually navigate you back to the location of the photo you’ve taken before. The details of this are not very clear in the press release (pdf) but does sound like full pledged GPS navigation system:

Altek Corporation has succeeded in developing an integrated map with browsing and navigation features on the existing digital camera platform… …a product that has incorporated electronic map browsing, search function for points of interests, satellite navigation and DSC functions

It is expected to hit the market second half of this year, ready for Beijing Olympics.
