GPS add-on launched for the Archos 605

No surprise to many, Archos have finally announced a GPS solution for the Archos 605. The unit is a In Car Holder for the 605 Wi-Fi PMP that turns it into a fully fledged navigational system. The In-Car Holder will be sold for approximately $130 and in theory this will make it quite an impressive competitor to most dedicated GPS system. This is because the Archos has a much larger hard drive (30-160 Gb) and screen resolution compared to most similarly priced GPS systems. The new system will use Tele Atlas maps and will be available as a European version cover 22 countries, a North America version covering the US and Canada, and a Chinese version. The full Archos 605 GPS package will give you the following features: Your Navigation Clear, easy-to read maps on the high-resolution 4.3-inch touch screen Easy and intuitive address, zip-code and POI (point of interest) markers for rapidly selecting destination points Precise navigation with automated simulation inside tunnels, lane assistance, advance signposts and fast and accurate route recalculation Traffic assistance, route planning, and speed control assistance in some countries Gain navigation information on any location throughout North America, Western Europe and China Get clear voice-to-text support through the car’s FM stereo (via the built-in line out), or the ARCHOS 605 WiFi's amplified built-in speaker Your Media on the Move Passengers can use the ARCHOS...

New theme and the end of the blog neglect!

Unfortunately we have been neglecting the blog a lot this year, it is only myself that contributes to the blog at the moment and I have been extremely busy with my company Dolphin Promotions. I have been trying to find a new member of staff and until then I am doing 2 peoples job, we have also been looking for new offices which takes up a surprising amount of time and therefore have not had much chance to blog here or the SEO Blog for Dolphin. Finally things seem to be getting close to being sorted, we are in the final stages of sorting the office and hopefully we have found someone who fits the bill for the job role. I am hoping to be able to blog a little more and to get back into things I have decided to update the theme with a template our designers created. The old theme seemed to have a few problems in IE and lots of other little irritating issues so instead of fixing them I am starting a fresh. Unfortunately there is no branding yet but we will get around to it! Overall I think the theme is a good choice, its nice and bright and there are less sidebars allowing for more room for the blog text to spread out. I am also considering implementing some adsense on to...
