ViaMichelin's X970T and X960 Personal Navigation Devices Unveiled

Give your Dad a Father's Day to remember this year by surprising him with one of the brand new ViaMichelin sat navs units. Whether your Dad travels for business or pleasure, a reliable PND will take the stress out of trips away. Help your Dad do-away with paper maps and long hours getting lost by giving him the latest units from ViaMichelin, the X970T and X960. Small and compact, the X960 makes a great gift on Father's Day and weighing it at just 136g, it is a suitable device for pockets and suitcases. And, for the more advanced gadget fan the X970T comes with free real time traffic information to avoid traffic routes where there has been an accident. It also comes with a Bluetooth hands free function that allows incoming calls to be accepted by touching the screen.

Whether he's going to the Rugby World Cup in France this summer or you just can't bare another trip where you get lost, the latest PND devices from VM can help with more than just simple direction. Dad can use the new POI (Point of Interest) packs, which can be downloaded from the ViaMichelin website. This will guide him to all the stadiums and show him the best French restaurants and hotels to stay at. Many more POI packs are soon available from the website to guide you around a range of other European cities.

Both units come with exclusive content from the prestigious Michelin Guides so your Dad can easily locate the nearest bank, garage, pub or tourist attraction so he can plan his perfect day out with no trouble. They also include UK, Ireland and European maps which cover up to 20 countries.

Both units also now come with built-in speed camera locator so if your Dad is always in a rush, he may never get caught out again.

The X960 and X970T offer the functionality to book restaurants and hotels using Bluetooth so your dad can find out if a room is available or book a table whilst on-the-go.
