Making tracks – Uniden’s new TRAX GPS devices with 360 Degree 3D Landmark Technology

Uniden says the big deal with the four new models in its ‘Trax’ line of incar GPS systems is the ‘360 Degree 3D Landmark Technology’, displaying streets, buildings, POIs and everything else in full, glorious 3D.

Ranging from $299.95 to $499.95, the navis will speak street names, using the Sensis ‘Where-is’ map data. Getting all a bit ‘Big Brother’ on you, the units will tell you which lane you should be in and advise when you speed, but they’ll also point out speed and red-light cameras.

The flagship Trax 436 model has a ‘traffic monitoring channel’ (TMC) receiver, allowing subscribers to hear the most up-to-date traffic snarl-up info as it happens, and all models bar the cheapest are Bluetooth compatible.
