Becker Traffic Assist.
Becker Traffic Assist 7977 was unveiled couple of months ago but it wasn't until recently that it appeared on their own website.
The new Traffic Assist 7977 is their top of the line GPS navigation system with a 4.3″ touch screen display, live traffic information, lane assistance, and maps for all of Europe.
Becker 7977 takes SD cards, and can even access media on USB drives making
easier to access images and audio files. It has bluetooth interface too; so you
can connect your bluetooth enabled phone and take and receive calls directly on
your sat nav system. In addition Becker has reality view that comes up when you
are approaching freeway junctions, something very similar to Navigon's.
New Becker Z101 and Z200
German brand Becker just introduced a new range of sat nav
systems called Z with two new models: Z101 and Z200.
Becker also introduced a new GPS navigation software which can split the screen in two to show small graphics representing your next turn and a general view of your route.
The hardware also got some upgrades which now uses SiRF Star III with InstantFixII which tries to predict the location of satellites to shorten fix times.
Both Z101 and Z200 follow the design of Becker Traffic Asist 7977 and 7827. They have a 4.3″ screen, maps of 40 European countries from Navteq on a 2GB SD card and RDS/TMC traffic receiver.
The navigation software actually comes from Navigon and it really excels when it comes to providing lane guidance with RealityView as well as 3D renderings of certain buildings.
Compared to Z101, Z200 has the extra Bluetooth kit for handsfree calling and a multimedia manager for reading video and audio files.
Z101 will be available mid-July for 229 Euros whereas Z200 is on sale starting from mid-June, for 349 Euros: New garmin etrex. Gps navigator. Garmin 305 Garmin 205 Garmin forerunner

Becker Traffic Assist 7928
Becker announced an extra wide GPS navigation system at IFA 2007
in Berlin. Called Becker Traffic Assist 7928 the device has a 4.8″ touch screen
- which is unusual for a sat nav system.
Inside Becker 7928 you'll find a 400 MHz-processor and a SiRF Star III chipset which is normal. However, the new device has 128MB of RAM which is twice what other manufacturers offer. Of course a device named 'traffic assist' also features RDS/TMC receiver to get live traffic information and thanks to the bluetooth feature you can take calls handsfree provided you have a bluetooth enabled phone.
Becker comes with Navteq maps that cover 37 European countries - which fits on a 2 GB SD card, which also contains some 3D renderings of famous landmarks in some select countries:
Becker Traffic Assist 7827
Becker continues to confuse people with numbering of their
models, but don't you worry, we at Navigadget are on top things. Today we have
Becker Traffic Assist 7827, not to be confused with 7927, 7928, or the 7934.
Becker Traffic Assist 7827 - which will be showcased at CES 2008 - will have maps of North America pre-installed on a 2GB SD card; and will also include POI data for continental U.S., Canada, Alaska and Puerto Rico. You can expect to see your driving directions assisted with Reality View on a sharp, wide, 4.3″ touch screen, and even have the correct lane you're supposed to be on thanks to the highly detailed freeway data.
Other features include the dynamic route guidance with free real time traffic, MP3 player and picture viewer, and the ability to display speed limits. We have no info when it'll be available in the U.S. but the European version of 7827 can be found on Amazon for ??250 ($500).
