News: GPS-enabled UMPC

Asus announced the release of R2H, the first UMPC (Ultra Mobile PC) equipped with GPS to hit the market it seems. Originally from ZDNet. If you got one around try GPS.Radar from JGUI.

Dash.net might catch your interest: "Dash will set a new industry standard for accurate, up-to-date information that helps alleviate the growing problem of traffic congestion in most major cities". The idea is to stay connected through an Internet link to update traffic info. TrafficGauge might be a cheaper solution for the same issue.

But it seems that this won't be the first to market, Streetdeck.com already has a similar product for sale. Along these lines, Technology Review has an article around the subject with a couple of really bad ideas.

And check an interesting interface to Google Maps in MapMyRun, which supports .gpx data upload.
