就Annti的印象而言,還沒看過有內建雷達測速的GPS車機,而如果廠商沒有唬爛Annti的話,這個名為 "蒙面俠" 的GPS車機真的是全球第一部GPS導航與雷達測速器Combo的PND車機。

用過GPS車機的人都知道,GPS車機的測速照相地點是內建在圖資中,而不是即時偵測,而且還會有正向道與逆向道位置的問題。而蒙面俠的運作方式為雷達測速器將收到的經緯度訊號傳給GPS車機,傳送的方式走有線或無線RF,即時在導航系統更新,算是一個不錯的解決方式,只是還是要兩部機器的說。

Annti先將蒙面俠的重點整理一下:

1.可裝兩個導航系統,像是Papago或RoadEasy(路易通),並可選擇要執行哪個系統
2.由於汽車的時速表通常會與真實行進速度有誤差,蒙面俠可允許加減微調經由GPS所測得的速度,以跟車子同步
3.對於測速可指定是正向或逆向車道
4.有雷達測速器與GPS車機「結合」與「分離」安裝的組合
5.建議售價約台幣12000元左右,Computex 2009結束後就會正式上市,但尚未找通路商

看得出來這是基於WinCE系統,細部介面可以看圖集

<Computex 2009: Conqueror GPS with Radar Detector>
From memory, we never seem a GPS with real laser speed radar detector built-in. If the manufacturer's word is anything to go by, this 'BLINDER' GPS unit is the world first PND unit with GPS navigation and laser speed radar detector combo.

For those who have used GPS car units would know, GPS units have occasional troubles of telling the direction of speed cameras, and the speed camera location data is based on data stored with the map, not based on real-time detection. How the BLINDER works, is upon detection, the radar detector unit will transmit the GPS co-ordinate via wired connection or RF wireless transmission to the GPS unit for real-time map update. Kind of nice solution, however, it still needs to have two separate units for the function.

Here is a brief summary of key features:

1. Two separate navigation software can be installed at the same time, for instance, PaPaGo or RoadEasy. The user can switch in between.

2. Since most cars' speed meter don't match the real traveling speed, BLINDER allows some fine tuning of the speed that GPS measured to match with the car's speed meter.

3. Can specify which lane direction to detect.

4. The laser speed radar detector can be attached or detached to the GPS unit.

5. RRP at around NT$ 12000, available after Computex 2009 finishes; however, through which distribution channel is currently unknown.
