Device Not Only Gets Drivers to Their Destination, But Also Does So with No Delays; Q4-LT Model to Be Featured at 2009 CES along with Other Advanced Nextar Products

Nextar(TM) , a designer and marketer of bold and new consumer electronic products with mass appeal, will soon be taking the wraps off of its latest GPS navigation unit, the Q4-LT. The unit includes a free lifetime subscription for live traffic reports that will be audible thru the vehicle’s radio system. The unit features USA and Canadian maps, which are provided on a 2GB SD card. Nextar will feature the unit at the upcoming 2009 CES in booth South 3-31753.

“As convenient and handy as a GPS device is, a major drawback, until now, has been its lack of affordable real-time information,” stated Eddy Zheng, Nextar founder. “Our new Nextar Q4-LT GPS unit eliminates that drawback as it provides live, up-to-the-second traffic reports for free. Users will know immediately if they will encounter any traffic problems that will slow their journey.”

The lifetime live traffic reports are provided at no additional charge and are available right out of the box. No activation will be required as the special feature will work the moment the system is turned on. Nextar is working with NAVTEQ(R) to provide users lifetime free traffic with discrete advertising and special promotions that are offered to users based on their location.

The unit includes a 4.3″ touch-screen display, 3D landmark and sign-post viewing, and a built-in speaker. 1.6-million points of interest, including hotels, shopping centers, gas stations, and restaurants, are included. Text-to-speech technology distinctly pronounces road names in a user-selected language of either English, Spanish, or French. Digital map data is supplied by NAVTEQ, the preeminent provider of comprehensive digital map information for automotive navigation systems.

The Nextar Q4-LT is the perfect traveling companion. In addition to its live traffic report capability, it also comes with the ability to play MP3 files as well as display JPEG images. A built-in antenna ensures signal reception. Power is supplied by a lightweight, built-in rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery. Accessories include: AC/DC adapter, car power adapter, USB cable, external RDS receiver, protection pouch, suction cup, and a stylus/touch pen.

The system measures 4.6″x 3.19″ x 0.8″ and weighs 2.3 pounds.

ScanGauge II Automotive Computer

As a general rule geeks like to have access to as much data and statistics as possible. We pretty much figure this applies to a geek’s motor vehicle as well. So, to allow you to access extra information about your car we would like to introduce the ScanGauge II Automotive Computer. This gadget is easy to install and provides a set of digital gauges, a comprehensive trip computer, and an engine trouble code scan tool.

The digital gauges mode displays four different properties on the screen (for example, fuel economy, battery voltage, coolant temperature, and engine speed). The trip computer tracks your vehicle’s maximum speed, average speed, driving time, driving distance, trip fuel economy and several other pieces of trip data. The engine trouble code scan tool lets you read standard engine trouble codes as well as clear the “check engine” light and other warning lamps.

The ScanGauge II is simple to use and install and mounts in, on or below the dash. It plugs into the diagnostic OBD-II connector found under the dash on 1996 and newer cars and light trucks. The functions are accessed viaa simple on-screen menu interface. There is an automatic delayed power-down after engine shutoff and automatic power-up when engine is started. User and vehicle settings are automatically saved.
