After Garmin and TomTom's specific motorcycle GPSGlobal Positioning System. Satellite based tracking device, that uses several satellites to position your exact location to within a few yards/meters accuracy., there's a third choice available. It's from called the Xroad RM-A4000 Open link in a new window (I wonder who comes up with these names?), and it's from Carpoint (Tibo), which I think is Korean.

The Xroad RM-A4000 is a Microsoft CE 5 based GPS, with a 2 Gb SD card memory. The Carpoint GPS itself uses SIRF STAR3 and is water spray resistant (in other words, if it's really raining, all bets are off).

The screen is a 3.5" LCD display (there's even a sun visor), and it has 64 Mb of internal memory. Apart from telling you where to go, it can play music (MP3 and WMA), and even play videos in MPEG-4 format.

The GPS unit weighs 260 grams, and the onboard battery will last 6 hours (no mention of wiring the GPS to your motorcycle).

The unit is equipped with BluetoothAn industrial specification for wireless personal area networks (PANs). Bluetooth provides a way to connect and exchange information between devices such as mobile phones, laptops, PCs, printers, digital cameras, and video game consoles over a secure, globally unlicensed short-range radio frequency. , so you should be able to hear the instructions with a Bluetooth enabled helmet.

The same applies to listening to music, and I presume talking on a Bluetooth enabled telephone.

Availability should be around now, but I can't see where it'll be available.

Price: Around US$ 600.
