Nintendo Ds Lite Gets Gps Navigation With Google Maps

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  April 19, 2009


Your mobile phone already has GPS navigation. Your car probably does too. Even the Sony PSP has a GPS option. So it was only a matter of time before the Nintendo DS would jump into the GPS fray.

Designed by China’s Fab Chain, the Ranger is a GPS add-on module for your NDS Lite. Just plug the Ranger into the accessory port on the front of your NDS, and provides turn-by-turn directions with Google Maps integration. The Ranger can display maps in both 2D and fake 3D perspective modes, and even has automatic day/night modes. And since it has its own built in rechargeable batteries, it won’t put added strain on your NDS’ power supply. As an added bonus, you can connect the Ranger to your PC or PDA via a USB connection and use it as a GPS on those devices as well.

Fab Chain hasn’t revealed pricing or a release date yet, but if you always travel with your DS and despite all your other gadgets, you’re still directionally challenged, you might want to look into one of these.
