Amazon.com Product Description With turn-by-turn directions in Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s voice, a selection of vehicles for the GPS pointer, Points of Interest (POIs) unique to NASCAR and Dale Jr., and a pre-loaded Race Shop Tour Route, the Spotter is a portable navigation device (PND) like no other.
The Dale Jr. Edition Spotter possesses all the features you would expect from a high-quality PND:
- Turn-by-turn guidance with street names (not available in Dale Jr's voice)
- 4.3-inch high-resolution LCD with anti-glare
- SiRF Atlas III GPS Module with Windows CE 5.0 Operating System
- Pre-loaded maps of the United States from Navteq (Q4 2008 map data)
- Video player, music player, photo viewing, and e-book capabilities
What makes the Spotter unique is Dale Earnhardt Jr. Instead of a computer-generated voice, Dale Jr. provides turn-by-turn directions in a casual way, saying "just ahead, hang a right" or "back her down" when you miss a turn. You have a choice of Dale Jr.'s cars--Amp car, National Guard car, or Team Trailer--for the GPS pointer marking your position on the route.
The Spotter has two unique points-of-interest (POI) categories. First, the Dale Jr. POI contains a collection of places he likes to visit, businesses he owns, and where to get a great pizza. Dale Jr. even provides a little commentary on each of his stops. And second, the NASCAR POI includes all the NASCAR Home Tracks, NASCAR Speed Parks, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series tracks, and team garages.
Just for the NASCAR fan, the Dale Jr. Edition Spotter comes pre-loaded with a Race Shop Tour Route. Start the tour at any point, and the Spotter will route you to 14 team garages and shops in the Charlotte, N.C., area.
