PostSubject: Vector V100 Portable GPS   Tue May 03, 2011 9:42 am

Launched back in February, Vector is among the very
few GPS devices that are available in the Philippines.


With over 38,000 points-of-interests, Vector has a decent number of POIs I’ve seen around.



This touch-screen GPS comes with a built-in battery that lasts about
3-4 hours on a single full charge but you can always hook it up via a
mini-USB car charger that comes with it.

Vector V100 specs:
4.3″ touchscreen panel @ 480×272 pixels
SiRFatlasV ARM11 533 Mhz CPU
128 MB DDR RAM
NDrive 10 navigation software
Bluetooth hands-free calling
2GB internal flash (up to 8GB microSD)
FM Transmitter
LED light sensor
USB 2.0
Extras: Calculator, Converter, Games
900 mAh Li-Ion battery



Vector has almost all of the standard features — turn-by-turn
navigation with voice direction, expansive search, itineraries and
alternate routes. The device is pretty easy to use although you could
get confused sometimes with the icons and the menu (perhaps a quick read
of the manual will help). The system loads quite fast and the satellite
look-up of the GPS locks in under 10 seconds (though this will heavily
depend on your location and other barriers).


Some nifty add-ons include hands-free Bluetooth connection with your
phone, an FM transmitter, music/video player and basic games. It even
has an LED sensor at the back panel that adjusts the brightness of the
LCD depending on the ambient light.



Vector uses NDrive for the navigation system and Accu-Map for the map
data (which I think is the most comprehensive local mapping data
around). NDrive is heavily used in Europe and some Android phones also
have them (like HTC and Samsung).

What I really liked about the NDrive system is that you can just
pin-point any location or area in the screen and the GPS will take you
there with its turn-by-turn navigation (so you’re not just restricted to
POIs or search data).

The unit is available in SM Appliance Stores with a suggested retail price of Php13,900.
