NEWS - GPS AT CES 2011


Las Vegas Convention Center on January 4th at noon

All the pictures from CES 2011 on Flickr : >> CES 2011 Picture Set<<

The CES International 2011 show took place in early January and the GpsPasSion Team was on location. There were some press events on the 4th and the 5th and the tradeshow started officially on the 6th. Previous years had been disappointing in terms of GPS news but this year Garmin had some exciting announcements, as well as TomTom and it was good time to catch up with other GPS players, such as Globalsat.

If you have questions or comments you can use the GpsPasSion coverage of CES 2011 Show topic in the "GPS and Mobile News" forums.
TOMTOM - GARMIN - NAVTEQ - GLOBALSAT - BLACKBERRY PLAYBOOK - SHOWSTOPPERS

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 :


GARMIN AT CES 2011





The new Smartphone apps : StreetPilot for iPhone and myMechanic for Android/Ecoroute HD





see the [TOPIC] Garmin® ecoRoute™ hd via OBD II - Reviews for more screenshots.

new dezl 560 for truckers on display of course :





see the [NEWS] Garmin dezl 560LMT - GPS for Truckers for more screenshots.

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



see the [NEWS] Garmin nuvi 24xx Series - CES 2011 Preview for more details and screenshots.

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 :



...or sports









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...




SHOWSTOPPERS

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



FINAL WORDS : all in all not a bad year for GPS with some unexpected announcements like the Garmin GTU-10 turnkey tracking solution and the Nike/TomTom watch. Good to see the new customization options on the Garmin nuvi 24xx and dezl 560 systems too, even it it's too bad the existing models will not be getting them. Nice to see the new SiRFstarIV designs from Globalsat too, let's hope they appear in more systems quickly.
