Asus has decided to take the plunge into the GPS market with the introduction of the R700t GPS. It is the first GPS from Asus, and while not perfect, the R700t is a worthy unit, especially when you consider that Asus is typically known for just making motherboards. In this review, we'll see how it stacks up to the competition and how well it performs.
Although the R700t lacks text to speech functionality, the system does attempt to make up for the void by adding a few distinctive features, such as 3D renderings of buildings on the display maps as well as a built-in traffic receiver. The receiver works with your free lifetime membership to the Traffic Message Channel to help you get through rush hour without too much of a fuss. The Asus R700t GPS can currently be purchased for around $325, depending on whether you shop online or through a retail venue.
The design of the Asus R700t is simple and in line with other GPS devices on the market. Its silver and black borders are attractive and complement your dashboard without being too much of an eyesore. The R700t is one of the slimmest GPS units on the market and definitely packs a punch despite its small size. It measures 3.1 inches high by 5 inches wide by 0.5 inches deep and weighs in at 7 ounces. Donít let its compact size fool you though; this is a solid piece of machinery. The highlight of the R700tís design, as with other GPS units, is its 4.3 inch touch screen display.
