The 2cm-deep widescreen devices also come equipped with a docking cradle and a more powerful speaker than earlier products. To enable usage of Traffic Message Channel reports, the C520t will be supplied with a TMC-enabled version of the docking cradle, which will be available as an accessory for C320 and C520 (pictured).

The split-screen displays key journey information, including the next four upcoming manoeuvres, information about local traffic congestion or selected points of interest nearby and offers complete 360° over and above rotation of view. All devices sport a 400Mhz processor, SD/MMC card slot, hands-free mobile calling with built-in Bluetooth and microphone, MP3 player, photo viewer plus maps of 22 Western European countries pre-installed on the internal 1GB flash memory.

All products will be available in the UK in April priced as follows... C220: £199, C320: £349, C520: £399 and the C520t: £449.
