The BlueCore Bluetooth silicon from CSR (Cambridge Silicon Radio) has been selected by Navman for its GPS 4400 in-vehicle system.

BlueCore will allow the GPS receiver to communicate wirelessly with a Pocket PC PDA which provides the user interface. The in-car Navman system makes use of satellite location technology (GPS) to pinpoint location and then issues precise directions throughout the journey using voice commands.

The supplied vehicle windshield mount combined with Bluetooth wireless connectivity allows the GPS receiver to be mounted on the front or rear windshield. CSR says the BlueCore Class 2 Bluetooth device can provide a wireless connection between the GPS receiver and PDA up to a range of 10m - permitting convenient location of the receiver and PDA. A fully mobile system, the Navman GPS 4400 is also designed to be easily transferred from vehicle to vehicle unlike fully embedded in-vehicle systems.
