By Bartoni in GPS. October 30, 2006

The 330 Auto Navigation is Nokia's first entry into dedicated satellite navigation with a price point aimed squarely at the TomToms and recently announced Sony nav-u.

The device ships with a 2GB SD card containing UK and European maps from NavTeq and 'Route 66 Navigate 7' software. The device can also be used as an MP3, video (rumoured to play DivX) and photo player on its 320x240 3.5" touch screen.

"Consumers are increasingly eager to use personal navigation devices while driving and we are delighted to introduce the Nokia 330 Auto Navigation device to meet this demand," said Razvan Olosu, vice president, Multimedia Enhancements at Nokia. "Nokia 330 Auto Navigation complements the recently announced GPS and navigation solutions from Nokia. Finding your way across Europe is simple with this comprehensive navigation package, including an integrated GPS receiver and European maps."

Details are sparse at the moment but expect the SiRFStar III and, as it's Nokia, link up to your mobile phone probably via bluetooth. It'll be powered by Samsung S3C2440 400 MHz processor with 64Mb.

The Nokia 330 Auto Navigation will hit shops this December at around 240 ex VAT
