We’ve talked about TwoNav here before; the GPS people who like green color. Well they just announced a brand new handheld GPS device called TwoNav Sportiva. The device is co-manufactured with Holux, another name that has been in the GPS market for a while now.
Anyhow the device only measures 58x105x23mm, weighs 124 grams, fits IPX6 standards, has a 3D compass and a barometer, has a 3″ transflective touchscreen, 2GB internal memory, and a microSD card reader up to 32GB. GPS reception is by SiRF III, and the battery has 1050mAh capacity which should last up to hours.
Hey, maybe we should’ve talk about what the device is for before all those specs… TwoNav Sportiva is pretty much good for any kind of outdoor activity whether it is to keep track of where you are or your performance. Hiking, biking, geocaching or all valid options thanks to the capable software loaded on Sportiva.
You can bring your own maps with you in different formats, from topographic maps, satellite pictures, raster maps and urban maps to paper scanned maps (because some maps just don’t exist in digital format). You can convert them using CompeGPS Land free basic version and transfer them to your GPS. You can also get your free maps from TwoNav which cover Spain, France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Finland, Norway, Netherlands, Austria, Morocco, Sweden, Australia, Tunisia, and the USA.
TwoNav Sportiva will be released in about two weeks on March 1st and will cost 379 €.
