V7 has launched two advanced functionality Portable Navigation Devices (PNDs), redefining value and utility for GPS customers. The NAV730 and NAV740 GPS PNDs are targeted at value-conscious GPS consumers and commercial fleets. Both are portable navigation devices featuring V7 Navigation Software with turn-by-turn, text-to-speech capabilities that allow users to see and hear where they are and how to get to their destination.

"The ultra-slim NAV730 and NAV740 are perfect solutions for consumers as well as commercial fleets who demand a feature-rich product at a value price point," said Rainer Kozlik, vice president and general manager of Ingram Micro's Global V7 Private Label Group. "These products are part of V7's commitment to offer innovative, reliable products at an attractive price-performance ratio to resellers worldwide."

The NAV730 and NAV740 come with many features typically available only in higher-end priced models, including a 3.5-inch 320x240 TFT-LCD high resolution display (NAV730) or 4.3-inch 480x272 TFT-LCD high resolution display (NAV740). Both models are touch-screen enabled with an easy-to-use, intuitive graphical user interface and turn-by-turn voice instruction including text-to-speech. Featuring an attractive, lightweight and slim (only 19.8mm thin) design, the NAV730 and NAV740 can easily slip into your pocket, making them truly portable navigation devices.

The new V7 NAV730 and NAV740 feature 400MHz CPUs for faster map redraws and enhanced AV capabilities, SD card technology for expandable storage, preloaded maps, and a built-in high performance multimedia (audio and video) player that supports the most popular audio, video, and digital picture formats (MP3, WMA, OGG, MPEG4, AVI, WMV, GIF, JPG, TIFF). Easy-to-install mounting hardware and auto adapters are included as standard products. Both units carry a two-year warranty.

"Loaded with the features at a price anyone can afford, the V7 NAV730 and NAV740 will not only make getting to your destination easier, but make your travels more enjoyable, too," Kozlik said.

V7 is Ingram Micro's exclusive global house brand for high quality IT and CE products, including notebook computer cases, notebook batteries, LCD Monitors, GPS navigation systems and toner. Leveraging worldwide operational excellence, real-time market intelligence and global sourcing power, V7 delivers state of the art products at an unmatched value maximizing return on investment for resellers and higher customer satisfaction.
