Caught a presentation in the CNET area of the new TomTom watch...
TOMTOM AT CES 2011
...then proceeded to the TomTom booth...except there is no public display booth...but closed sessions in the MP (meeting rooms) area where Kaitlin welcomed me after I pushed the door :
They brought the "sofa hands" !
New VIA and GO LIVE AIOs - Both pretty stylish - Mid-2011 Availability
New Nike+TomTom watch with built-in USB connector :
The new Sony XNV-L66BT/L77BT 2DIN aftermarket system with its "heart" (a GO LIVE 1000 without a screen) :
Then off to find Garmin who have a full public booth :

Then on to the nuvi 24xx models with their new "customization" features :

Garmin are pushing their new tracking solutions :
GTU-10, an "upgraded" 1695 (see this topic
for more details) and a dedicated website
A new "tracker" feature on the 1695 :
The Android tracking app :
Outdoor GPS not forgotten of course :
Then off to the other GPS related booths :
NAVTEQ AT CES 2011
Starting with Navteq...
...with the more interesting items on display were:
"Natural Guidance" : new map attributes to give "natural" directions, such as "turn right at the next red light", "turn before/after/at/next, etc...", so far only NNG's iGo software is using them and the coverage is limited to New-York, Chicago and Los Angeles
Some GPS cameras using Navteq's maps and/or POIs for location
GLOBALSAT AT CES 2011
...on to the other GPS related booth in the South Hall : Globalsat, the only remaining (at least at CES) GPS manufacturer from the mid-2000s (gone are Holux, Royaltek, Haicom, etc..)
They have sports devices and watches, including the new 625xt
GPS trackers :
and a new GS-Traq website for their customers :
SiRFstarIV boards too :
SPOT was also in the South Hall but already covered above, so that was it for "GPS"...
BLACKBERRY PLAYBOOK TABLET
...but I stumbled on the Blackberry Booth and was very impressed with their PlayBook tablet, very fast and smart (bezel controlled) interface with the real time QNX operating system and dual core platform. It has GPS of course but they were not sure if it's the powerful and lean SiRFstarIV chipset like on the Blackberry Torch.
And that was it...
before a quick stop at the ShowStoppers event in the Lafite ballroom at the Wynn hotel, but no GPS there unfortunately :
So that concludes my coverage of CES 2011
