Portable GPS with vibrating touchscreen announced

Posted by Wolfgang Gruener

Korean PND (portable navigation device) GPS manufacturer CTT-Net has announced what apparently is the world’s first portable GPS system and in-car GPS that integrate Immersion’s Touchsense technology. According to the manufacturer, the CIN-700 will provide the user with “unmistakable” tactile feedback when moving a finger across buttons on the 7” screen.

 

 

 

CTT-Net said that the technology makes the touchscreen feel more responsive and may be reducing glance-time at screen while driving.

There was no information on the price of the CIN-700 and, as you might imagine, there are no plans at this time to make the PND available in the U.S.
