Coming in April: The "DrivTrax™ P5" Personal Navigation Device


Clarion Co., Ltd. (President: Tatsuhiko Izumi) will release the DrivTrax™ P5, the company’s first Personal Navigation Device (PND) for the domestic Japanese market, at the beginning of April 2007.

Combining precision guidance and an intuitive interface with a richly detailed database, Clarion has developed a unique Personal Navigation Device (PND) that provides the optimum balance of portability and ease of use. Whether on business or pleasure the "DrivTrax™ P5" will swiftly and accurately guide you to the destination or point of interest of your choice wherever you are.

The "DrivTrax™ P5" owes its powerful navigation features to Clarion’s exclusive in-vehicle product technology — built upon its many years in pursuit of the ideal integration of music, information and mobility, and embodied in the “Clarion H.M.I. (Human Mobile Music Media Interface)” brand slogan. Massive in-vehicle navigation functionality in a compact package comes thanks to such major features as an 11 million address searchable database, search and route calculation, route display, voice guidance and other capabilities, coupled with a vivid 4.3-inch liquid crystal touch panel display, large-capacity 2 GB Flash Memory and the versatile expandable Microsoft Windows® CE 5.0 operating system.

The onboard SD card interface can be used to move from the world of navigation to the world of entertainment, by transforming the device into a portable MP3/WMA music player or a JPEG/BMP Picture Viewer, while the mini-USB port will make it possible to stay on top of future changes by enabling the transfer of map updates and other valuable information.

With a built-in lithium-ion battery capable of up to 4.5 hours of operation and rechargeable using the included AC adapter or USB cable, the device’s portability and ease of use extend beyond the vehicle. Compact (132 mm x 90.5 mm x 22 mm), ultra-light (198 g) and a snap to mount or dismount using the included one-touch car bracket, the device can be held in one hand, and slips easily into a pocket, handbag or briefcase, and out of the reach of would-be thieves in the unfortunate event of a car break-in. Easy to operate and carry anywhere, by car, bike or on foot, whether at home or out and about, users never have to wonder where they are or where they are going.

The major features of the DrivTrax™ (coined from words “Drive,” “Transport” and “x the unknown”) are outlined below.
