AVT offers portable GPS in the Philippines

AVT today announced a whole line of GPS devices specific for the Philippine market. That’s turn-by-turn GPS navigation available for the entire Greater Metro Manila and all national highways from Abra to Davao.

AVT introduced their most affordable GPS device, the Navigator A800, for an introductory price of Php18,500. The device has a 4.3″ LCD touchscreen, pre-loaded with maps of greater Metro Manila, has turn-by-turn voice direction, 2D/3D map display with some multimedia capabilities (photo, video and music player).

Powered by a Samsung ARM 400MHz, the A800 stores all data on a memory card (up to 32GB) that you can switch anytime if you want to add more maps or multimedia files for playback. AVT will provide updates to your device every 3 months for 2 years for free. A minimal fee per update will be charge after that. Updates can be downloaded on their site and saved to the SD card.

Maps are developed and provided by Accu-Map Philippines. It covers 100% of Metro Manila and National Highways Road Network and has 12,869 points of interest for Metro Manila and 40,276 nationwide.

We went around Makati to try out the device. My first impression is that the touchscreen is very responsive, GPS tracking was also accurate. The system is also aware of the one-way streets in Makati as well as u-turn (or no u-turn) slots along EDSA. It’s not 100% MMDA-proof (I asked!) but it’s fairly accurate that it even knows how to go around gated communities or subdivisions.
