Motorola is back into the car GPS game with new devices!

The Motorola brand is not just about smartphones. Motorola is a popular name in public-safety products, home products and mobile accessories. In this last one, the brand particularly shines for its bluetooth headphones, but it is now entering into the automobile accessories game. The first step was to launch the Dash Cam MDC100, a small 2.8" screen with a 2MP camera for vehicles, and the upcoming camera we showed you last week.

This proved to be a successful product since its launch a few months ago, and now Motorola is releasing their first Satellite Navigation devices since 2011, when the last MotoNAV car GPS was launched.

This new Motorola car GPS will be sold for 99 dollars and will be reaching Europe and the US soon. In case you were wondering, this is not a product from Lenovo's Motorola. It's done by Motorola Accessories, a division under a British company called Binatone, which is also in charge of most Motorola-branded home products. Motorola Mobility sold their accessories division to Binatone back in 2015.

The new GPS features a 5" 800x480 screen, as well as relevant information about restaurants, gas stations & hotels. Its memory can be expanded thanks to a microSD slot, while it also features 2D and 3D navigation. The new GPS devices won't carry the old MotoNAV trademark, but will carry a new one called XPLORE. 

All in all, it's quite a nice product and we were lucky to get an early hands-on this product which will launch very soon in Europe, followed by the US.
