|You can do a lot with the ClarionMiND Mobile Internet Navigation Device — surf the Internet, get directions, play movies and music, and much, much more. You'll enjoy the benefits of many devices in one sleek, portable package. Stow it in your bag when you go on vacation, check e-mail at the coffee shop, or compare prices while you're shopping at the mall. And you can access all this powerful functionality with just three simple buttons and a 4.8" LCD color touchscreen.
The slick user interface makes choosing menu items a breeze — scroll through the icons with a swipe of your finger, or arrange them in an overhead "carousel" mode. The icons grow larger as you scroll toward the center, making it even easier to tap the screen and get where you want to go. You can also personalize your home screen with shortcuts to the programs you use most often for maximum convenience.
Entertainment at your fingertips
Play your movie and music files, view photos, watch YouTube™ videos, or play online games with the ClarionMiND. Built-in RealPlayer™ is compatible with most file formats, and gives you almost DVD-quality playback. Connect a gamepad to one of the USB slots to play games, or show everyone pictures of your vacation from a thumb drive. Unlike some other portable devices, you get a large, bright screen that's easy on the eyes. Use the Music Sync application to access your MP3 files from anywhere you have Internet access. Your tunes are stored on a remote server, so you can synch them to the ClarionMiND any time you're online.
Built-in computer processor and Linux operating system
Your web pages will load quickly and movie files will play smoothly, thanks to a robust 800 MHz Intel® Atom™ processor, a user-friendly Linux operating system, and 512MB of RAM. Built-in Bluetooth® lets you talk hands-free in your vehicle with your compatible cell phone. You can even connect to the Internet on the road, using your cell phone as a modem with your wireless data plan. A USB input lets you access files from or copy files to a thumb drive. You also get additional computer functions like an address book, file manager, calculator, and PDF viewer.
Wireless Internet access
With the ClarionMiND, you can surf the Internet in any Wi-Fi® hotspot or over your home wireless network, while you view full web pages on its large 800-pixel wide screen, minimizing the need to scroll left and right. You'll find popular web applications like MySpace™, YouTube, weather, news, and e-mail built right in. On the road away from a Wi-Fi hotspot, you can use your Bluetooth®-enabled phone and data plan to access the Internet.
Find your way with GPS navigation
The ClarionMiND gives you turn-by-turn map and voice guidance as you drive, and you'll see maps of the entire U.S. and Canada clearly on the big touchscreen. You'll hear street names called out as you follow directions to your destination. A Traffic.com widget displays traffic jam info, so you won't get caught in the latest pile-up. Split-screen mode lets you keep an eye on the weather, news, your music, and other information as you navigate. You can mount the ClarionMiND on your car's windshield or console with the included cradle.
You can access powerful destination searches by connecting to the Internet. The ClarionMiND links with Google™ Maps to provide you with a wealth of information when you're looking for a place to eat, shop, or relax. You can narrow your search for a specific type of location or include as many options as you want — Google Maps can help you find what you're looking for.
