Garmin iQue M4 Announced

by Reads (5,347)

Garmin has released another Windows Mobile GPS unit, the iQue M4. The M4 is designed to be a pick-up-and-go unit right out of the box, with the City Navigator program, which includes maps for the US, Canada and Puerto Rico, loaded into system memory. It also includes a new SiRF chip for better GPS performance. The M4 isn’t fancy as a PDA though, opting for the older version of Windows Mobile and no integrated wireless. The iQue M4 goes on sale in December at an MSRP of $750.
