DeLorme of US announced two GPS product launches, Earthmate(R) LT-20 and Earthmate(R) GPS PN-20, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Earthmate(R) LT-20

This new high-sensitivity device turns any laptop PC into a powerful GPS navigator.

The Earthmate GPS LT-20 uses ST Microelectronics and SiGE Semiconductor chips, integrated with DeLorme software and firmware, for fast satellite acquisition times, noise reduction, and premium performance. The Earthmate LT-20 will ship in April 2005. It will be available both at retail and direct from DeLorme.

Earthmate(R) GPS PN-20

People who want to use DeLorme mapping software on a handheld GPS can finally do so. Earthmate GPS PN-20, also powered by ST Microelectronics and SiGE chip technologies, is DeLorme’s first GPS with a built-in screen.

The Earthmate GPS PN-20 supports routing and tracking on the device. Users can also download maps and routes from these DeLorme desktop software products: Topo USA(R) 5.0, Street Atlas USA(R) 2005, XMap(R) 4.5, XMap GIS Editor, and a new worldwide software program planned for release later in the year. Topo USA and XMap product users will also be able to access DeLorme Aerial Data packets containing aerial photos, satellite images, and USGS 7.5-minute quad maps.
