postheadericon Visualized: classic biplane gets a glass cockpit

Waco’s YMF-5D biplane may look like an authentically vintage aircraft from the outside, but it’s an entirely different story once you strap yourself into the pilot’s seat. The plane is available with a number of different “glass cockpit” options, including the top of the line model pictured above that’s outfitted with a whole slew of Garmin aviation gear and other 21st century niceties. Of course, that doesn’t exactly come cheap – all told, the full glass configuration runs just over $99,000, or over $500,000 including the plane itself (you can see what it looks like after the break).

postheadericon Garmin’s nuvi 2400 pairs a 5-inch screen with voice control, isn’t a phone

You don’t need us to tell you that phones are posing a huge threat to the dedicated navigation device market, but Garmin isn’t giving up without a fight (or without hedging its bets). It just announced its nüvi 2400 series of “large format” PNDs, with 5-inch screens and a wealth of features. Standouts include voice control and some serious routing capabilities based on “trafficTrends” and “myTrends,” which are exactly what they sound like. Prices start at $250, with all the features available but except for traffic and free map updates. At the $350 mark you can get lifetime map and traffic, traffic adapter . The whole line should be out in Q1 of this year.

postheadericon Garmin GTU 10 GPS locator tracks whatever you want, wherever AT&T’s coverage goes

GTU 10

GPS is that stuff that gets you home when you have no idea where you are, but it can also be the thing that helps you find those dealies you left… somewhere. At least, it can be if you have a GTU 10 GPS module from Garmin attached to said dealies. It’s a little integrated unit that has a wireless connection and can, for better or worse, dial itself to AT&T‘s data network. It updates its location in regularly and allows you to see just where that is via the Garmin Tracking site. Or, you can download the Garmin Tracker app to your mobile device (of undisclosed provenance) if you prefer to use your active voice, enabling you to get turn-by-turn directions right to your wayward GTU. It’ll even fire you an e-mail or a TXT if whatever it is you’ve attached it to strays too far outside of your safe zone. The GTU 10 looks to be available now at $199.99, which includes one year of tracking. You’re stuck paying $49.99 per year after that — or, you know, losing your stuff.

postheadericon Garmin StreetPilot app does turn-by-turn on the iPhone and iPad for $40

When Garmin curtailed its hardware partnership with Asustek late last year, you had to know the company would make a comeback to the mobile front in some shape, fashion or form. Starting today, the iPhone and 3G iPad both get the all-new StreetPilot app, which costs $39.99 and provides you with turn-by-turn navigation from the guys who make their living from the stuff. It undercuts TomTom’s $49.99 offering for iOS, while offering real-time traffic data, voice commands, lane assist, address book integration so you can navigate directly to your buddies’ addresses, and multitasking support. It’s looking like a pretty comprehensive piece of premium navigation software, which, if previous rumors bear out, should be landing on BlackBerry devices as well pretty soon. Jump past the break for the press release.
