AVT presented the following models during the 3rd Philippine International Motor Show: the AVT Navigator PN-301, PN-401 and PN-501.

The AVT Navigator PN-301 is an entry-level GPS device priced at P9,800. It comes with a 3.5-inch color touchscreen, a built-in speaker and comes with a USB 2.0 ActiveSync support. The PN-301 is powered by a Sirf Atlas IV 500MHZ processor with a Microsoft Windows CE 6.0 operating system.

The mid-range AVT Navigator PN-401, also with a built-in speaker and USB 2.0 connectivity, comes with a bigger display of 4.3-inch color touchscreen, and runs on a Sirf Atlas V533MHZ processor with Windows CE 6.0. It costs P14,500.

AVT, the first company to introduce a portable navigation system in the Philippines, is supported by the iNav team which provides updated local maps. To date, the iNav map already has 95,000 points of interest and covers close to 100 percent of the Metro Manila road network. Its system also includes key cities and towns nationwide.

AVT likewise provides the GPS devices for vehicles like the Isuzu Alterra, Hyundai Starex Limousine, Nissan X-Trail, and Ford Everest.

“Our company was the first to make a strategic commitment to a Philippine-based GPS navigation system,” AVT navigation systems project leader William Chong said in a statement. “We believe it is this commitment to local support that sets us apart from other brands.”

AVT navigation systems are available nationwide and map updates are released regularly. Owners are given free update support for at least two years.

    Kindly check Roadguide.ph. Map is better, Using a garmin nuvi is way way better than avt china products. This is proven and tested. A garmin 760 series would cost you just 10,000.
