Car manufacturer JEEP Open link in a new window have launched a rugged GPSGlobal Positioning System. Satellite based tracking device, that uses several satellites to position your exact location to within a few yards/meters accuracy., which should go on sale in the US in January 2008. Though meant for cars, a rugged GPS is something that should interest us, since it'll most probably be rainproof, and should withstand the vibrations that motorcycles create.

Jeep RT300 GPS

The Jeep GPS, called RT 300 has a 3.5 inch display (the same size as Garmin and TomTom motorcycle GPSs), and touchscreen functionality. Apart from the turn-by-turn navigation, you also get MP3 music, video playback capability and even an eBook reader (the last 2 are a bit useless when riding, but probably great when camping).

The unit comes equipped with all USA states preloaded, and with 1 million Points Of Interest (POI).

Not much else is known yet, like will it take a 12V lead, mounting possibilities, updating facilities, etc.

Expected Retail Price: US$300.
