Medion GoPal PNA 210 - Cheapest SiRF Star III Sat Nav

By D Barton in GPS. December 16, 2006

The GoPal must be one of the lowest priced navigation systems around. You can currently pick this up for just £99 from PC World on-line (£129.99 in store), which surely makes it the cheapest SiRFStarIII device at the moment.

For such a low price you'd expect the GoPal to be very basic. And it mostly is. There are few buttons, everything controlled by the touch screen which is smallish 2.8 inch instead of the usual 3.5. There's also no built in rechargable battery, instead it takes 4 AAs but it does come with a cigarette lighter adapter for use in the car.

The SiRF Star III GPS chipset is, for me, the selling point here. It wasn't too long ago that these sat navs were costing in the region of £400. It also supports 2D or 3D viewing, Navteq UK and Ireland maps, SD card support (for additional maps), a photo viewer (but not mp3 playback), voice guidance, UK fixed safety camera warnings, 256MB of memory and a car mounting kit. Which isn't too bad at all.

You can input addresses using eight digit post codes. It also gives you the option of being directed to the middle of the street if you donít know, or canít be bothered, to enter the number.

Although a little light on features it does have fast accurate positioning (thanks to that chipset) and good maps of the UK & Ireland. For those on a tight budget, or if you don't use a sat nav that often, the GoPal PNA210 is a good choice and great value for money!
