When GPS sellers and Netbook manufacturers are still separating each other from their own territories, the Clarion has landed on the Moon. Such a metaphor is worth using to describe Clarion's latest breakthrough in both areas– ClarionMiND Mobile Internet Navigation Device, an advanced combination of a GPS and MID (Mobile Internet Device).
As a GPS, the ClarionMiND's performance is ensured by a high-precision GPS antenna and vast map data from the well known NAVTEQ MAPS, while as a MID, it provides Wi-Fi based Internet access to Google, MySpace, YouTube and E-Mail just like you are doing on your desktop. Of course, the whole thing does not stop here. The revolutionary ClarionMiND makes a step further by integrating Internet service into the GPS navigation experience. For example, you can use Google Maps' huge database to check out information about a place you've been wanting to go, then have the navigation system guide you right there. Plan an entire vacation by investigating places on the Internet, then having the system plot the best route. Or check YouTube for videos of interesting places within driving distance and then go see them for yourself.
With the ClarionMiND, you are no longer restricted to the limited resource and knowledge about your travel. Connecting to the largest knowledge base – the Internet, and explore any possibility you are used not allowed to!
