The GPS 1000, a new handheld global positioning system device from Cobra Electronics, incorporates mapping software from Rand McNally (a U.S. interstate highway map is standard; you can download street-level maps from your PC using optional Rand McNally software). The unit can store up to 500 waypoints with names and symbols and create as many as 50 routes with up to 50 waypoints. It has a compass, altimeter, clock, and a location logger that automatically tracks your travel. Cobra plans to sell the GPS 1000 at major electronics stores starting this fall at a suggested price of $250 US.
