News: Audi show way with digital dashboard

pocketgpsworld.com
Audi unveiled their new digital dashboard in the Audi TT last March but now they've revealed that it will be rolling out to other models with the new Audi A4 the next in their range to get the upgrade.

Using a large 12.3-inch TFT display in place of the traditional gauges, the virtual dashboard uses crystal clear graphics to represent the gauges and information panels and because this is a virtual display it can change instantly from the classic dashboard with dominant speed and rev counters to an infotainment mode where navigation, media etc are displayed more prominently.

Powered by an Nvidia Tegra 3, a chip more commonly found in high end smartphones, the display refreshes at 60 frames per second and is accompanied by steering wheel and centre console controls. The A4 also includes a large screen mounted centrally on the dashboard so that passengers can view navigation, enter destinations and select media.

News: OSO launch two new Smartphone mounts

pocketgpsworld.com
Osomount have launched two new Smartphone mounts, the Smart EX and 360 Flex.

Both mounts incorporate the sticky suction cup which allows them to adhere to windscreens and surfaces such as textured or curved dashboards and other surfaces where traditional suction cups would fail.

The Smart EX has an extending arm, perfect for those cars with deep dashboards. A one-touch grip mechanism makes insertion of the phone quick and easy. A pressure operated button detects the phone being inserted and closes the arms automatically.

The second mount is the 360 Flex. This comes with a 360 degree tilting mount that can accommodate smartphones from 2-inches to 3.5-inches in width and is available in black and white versions.

Smart EX is 22.99, 360 Flex 19.99 and both are available from Osomount's website.

We have two mounts to give way, click the competition link below for details on how to enter.

News: U.S. Air Force Space Command celebrates 20 years of GPS service

pocketgpsworld.com
The U.S. Air Force Space Command is celebrating 20 years since the Global Positioning Service (GPS) was declared fully operational on 17th July 1995.

On that date, 24 satellites were on orbit and providing service with 24-hour coverage worldwide, hence the Fully Operational Capability (FOC) status attributed as of that date.

Even prior to this, GPS had proved its worth in Operation Desert Storm where, for the first time, commanders were able to accurately pinpoint both their assets and their targets. This despite, at that time, only 16 satellites were available reducing coverage to about 19-hours per day.

Now GPS is as ubiquitous as electricity and clean water, we take it for granted and many have grown up with it. There are an estimated four billion GPS-enabled devices worldwide and the market is expected to be worth more than $26 billion by 2016.

As well as navigation, GPS is used for precision timing in finance industries and is being rolled out in commercial aviation, reducing the reliance on costly ground based infrastructure and allowing more direct routing and better use of airspace.

And the best bit, this global service, that billions of us rely on each and every day, is commanded and run by just seven people in one small room at Schriever Air Force Base.

News: Ford unveil MoDe:Flex eBike

pocketgpsworld.com
Ford have unveiled a new eBike concept called the MoDe:Flex, an electric assist bike that, they hope, will convince you to mix driving and cycling in your daily commute.

Using a dedicated app, MoDe:Link, you can plan a commute that mixes car and bike journeys and, with that in mind, the MoDe:Flex can be quickly broken down into two boot friendly parts. Leave home in the car, drive to an out of town car park and then cycle the last leg of the journey.

MoDe:Flex is also equipped with LED lights, a removable battery pack for easy charging and can be configured for road or off-road cycling.

This is still firmly in the prototype stage but it's the third bike Ford have shown off so it would seem they are serious about looking at this as a future product.

Reviews: Brodit iPad Mini Retina Holder Reviewed

pocketgpsworld.com
Brodit make some of the best device holders on the market. I took a look at the Brodit 521584 iPad Mini active holder with cig-plug. Putting it through its paces in both my personal car and in rental cars I wanted to see how transferrable it could be and of course how stable and secure the mounting solution would be.

I have a number of devices that I use regularly, and a larger number that I use occasionally. I also do a lot of travelling in rental cars so I need a mounting solution that is not only transportable between vehicles, but can easily be installed and removed quickly and easily. Of course the other main criteria are that my device is held firmly and it can be powered as well.

News: Some Lorry Drivers Placing Too Much Faith In Satnavs

pocketgpsworld.com
The Local Government Association (LGA), which represents councils in England and Wales, has called for increased power for local councils to tackle lorry drivers who breaks height or weight restriction rules.

The LGA is seeking the same powers as Transport for London which allow them to impose fines. They say "There has been a spate of accidents involving lorry drivers driving irresponsibly and bringing bedlam to small rural communities - and action must be taken immediately to curb this."
