就Annti的印象而言,还没看过有内置雷达测速的GPS车机,而如果厂商没有唬烂Annti的话,这个名为 "蒙面侠" 的GPS车机真的是全球第一部GPS导航与雷达测速器Combo的PND车机。

用过GPS车机的人都知道,GPS车机的测速照相地点是内置在图资中,而不是实时侦测,而且还会有正向道与逆向道位置的问题。而蒙面侠的运作方式为雷达测速器将收到的经纬度讯号传给GPS车机,传送的方式走有线或无线RF,实时在导航系统更新,算是一个不错的解决方式,只是还是要两部机器的说。

先将蒙面侠的重点整理一下:

1.可装两个导航系统,像是Papago或RoadEasy(路易通),并可选择要执行哪个系统
2.由于汽车的时速表通常会与真实行进速度有误差,蒙面侠可允许加减微调经由GPS所测得的速度,以跟车子同步
3.对于测速可指定是正向或逆向车道
4.有雷达测速器与GPS车机「结合」与「分离」安装的组合
5.建议售价约台币12000元(RMB2523)左右,Computex 2009结束后就会正式上市,但尚未找通路商

看得出来这是基于WinCE系统,细部接口可以看图集

<Computex 2009: Conqueror GPS with Radar Detector>
From memory, we never seem a GPS with real laser speed radar detector built-in. If the manufacturer's word is anything to go by, this 'BLINDER' GPS unit is the world first PND unit with GPS navigation and laser speed radar detector combo.

For those who have used GPS car units would know, GPS units have occasional troubles of telling the direction of speed cameras, and the speed camera location data is based on data stored with the map, not based on real-time detection. How the BLINDER works, is upon detection, the radar detector unit will transmit the GPS co-ordinate via wired connection or RF wireless transmission to the GPS unit for real-time map update. Kind of nice solution, however, it still needs to have two separate units for the function.

Here is a brief summary of key features:

1. Two separate navigation software can be installed at the same time, for instance, PaPaGo or RoadEasy. The user can switch in between.

2. Since most cars' speed meter don't match the real traveling speed, BLINDER allows some fine tuning of the speed that GPS measured to match with the car's speed meter.

3. Can specify which lane direction to detect.

4. The laser speed radar detector can be attached or detached to the GPS unit.

5. RRP at around NT$ 12000, available after Computex 2009 finishes; however, through which distribution channel is currently unknown.
