Sony PSP gets Wi-Fi based GPS via PlaceEngine
 
 

New navigation software for the Sony PSP will leverage the PlaceEngine Wi-Fi geo location services.

The new navigation software from Zenrin Map 2 and the Edia Maplus will still use the GPS accessory for the PSP, but add location data provided through Wi-Fi. For instance if the PSP is connected to a wi-fi hotspot the navigation applications can continue to show the location inside buildings where GPS satellites are not reachable. We recently reported about the upcoming iRiver W10, which uses the Skyhook Wi-Fi positioning solution.

The GPS receiver for the Sony PSP is still just available in Japan. You can order the PSP-290 via video game exporter Play-Asia for $59.90.
The Zenrin Map 2 with GPS sells for $95 and the MaPlus with GPS receiver sells for $99.90.
Via this Sony VAIO announcement.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
