CeBIT 2007 is rapidly creeping up on us. It seems like only yesterday we were at CES in Las Vegas, and now we are getting ready, along with thousands of other companies, for CeBIT 2007 in Hannover Germany.

CeBIT 2007 runs from the 15th to the 21st of March. Last year TomTom broke with tradition and announced their new products a couple of weeks before the tradefair. This seems to have started a new trend and both Navigon and Garmin have released details of some new products. In light of this we have started our CeBIT 2007 reporting just that little bit early.

The PocketGPSWorld.com team will be out in Germany with Darren, Lutz, MaFt and myself. We will be having meetings with all the main companies, and a lot of the other manufacturers as well. If you have any questions that you would like us to ask any company a question, post it in this forum you can also use the forum to discuss CeBIT news and events.

I'm assuming you haven't already done this, but if not could you ask TomTom :-

Do they accept that their existing TMC receiver is less than ideal, to say the least, in the UK?

If nothing is announced at CeBit, do they have any plans to offer an a revised or alternative receiver incorporating an external anntena connection?

Whilst I'm sure their focus will be on their GSM/GPRS offerings, I'm sure i'm not the only one of their customers who would like an answer to these questions.

My Safari is still working fine. Obviously as it a Mac it provides me protection from all the nasty bug you encounter when on IE instead of Safari...

Following on from emjaiuk question regarding the TMC I have one question/suggestion that you make like to ask TomTom.

Would TomTom consider including a free subscription to the dial-up traffic service, possible a Lite version with all TMC units? The reason for the suggestion is as follows, when in an area that has TMC reception the TMC source is used, when this is not available the traffic service automatically switches to GPRS traffic, and back to TMC when available.

You better ask them to add in the extra functionality to the software to switch back to GPRS mode when the RDS drops out, as currently the software cannot do this, if you plug in the RDS-TMC it defaults to use the RDS source for its data, it cannot drop back to GPRS mode without unplugging the RDS-TMC - Mike

I think you guys are all too aware there is a major uderlying issue here with TMC with all manufactureres. Pressure could be applied to all maunfacturers about their reciving technology (ariels) and the providers of the transmissions to boost reception.

Their loyal customers are having to throw away provided equipment to ensure adiquate service were before there was none.

You have enough information on this site to provide proof of a problem. I'll give you these two.

Have a good time guys. Smile

Could you please find out if the Magellan maestro 4050 will be available in the UK?

Also, I understand they are going to release the Garmin 670T. I would like to know if there will be any difference between that and the nuvi 670 which is already out.

Thanks.

Can you find out if the ViaMichelin X980T will get upgraded to version 7 software like what is installed on the new X960 and x970 models they have announced. (Neither are a replacement for the x980, as they are lower hardware spec).

I'd be interested to see if the new TMC Antenna Design from ViaMichelin will fit the previous models. Looking at your pictures the connectors look the same at the bottom. Suppose it depends how they would fit with mounts.

If you chat to any companies the build OEM built-in SatNav units for motor manufacturers. Would you ask them to think about adding the following to their devices?

Arrow Accept user custom POIs of a standard type (.OV2, .CSV, etc) and use colour .BMP files to show POI icons on screen.

Arrow Use .ogg files for POI proximity alert warnings.

Arrow Accept reusable common storage media (e.g. SD card, CF card, USB stick, etc) where user custom data (POIs, .BMP files, .off files, etc) can be stored.

Arrow The units POIs should be able to fully interact with the POIs. Such as navigate to, and avoid the POIs.

Regards,
