Today a new GPS unit from Garmin called the nuLink! 2390 made its way through the FCC. The device won FCC approval for its Bluetooth capabilities, as well as GSM bands 850 and 1900. Those GSM bands are a key differentiator for the 2390, as they enable Live Services, such as Google Local Search, 3D traffic data, weather updates and other live services available through the nuLink store. Users can even access live traffic cam feeds with the 2390, so you can see road congestion before you start your journey.
The 2390 is already available for preorder in the UK for £229.99, and the device is scheduled for a May 27th release. No word as to when the 2390 will go on sale in the United States, but today’s FCC filing is a good sign that this will occur soon.
