Chatsworth, Calif. — Sanyo is shipping two personal navigation devices (PNDs) including a model with one of the most advanced feature sets to sell at a low suggested retail of $499.

Sanyo is shipping both the Easy Street NVM-4070 and NVM-4050, first introduced in January at International CES.

The top-end model NVM-4070 offers a 4-inch screen with real-time traffic, Bluetooth, portable media player, built-in FM transmitter to play music through the car radio, text-to-speech to announce upcoming street names and an SD card slot.

It also includes pre-installed maps of Canada and the United States, including Puerto Rico, plus 1.8 million points of interest. The step-down model, NVM-4050, offers similar features without real-time traffic, video playback and built-in FM transmitter at a suggested $399.
