Medion and AuthenTec announced today three new personal navigation devices that all include a fingerprint scanner. Fingerprint authentication is a theft deterrence device. Without scanning the correct fingerprint, users can’t activate the device.

Each of the three navigation devices uses the small AuthenTec AES1510 fingerprint sensor. The Medion models with the fingerprint sensor include the GoPal P5235, P5435, and X5535. The high-end X5535 integrates a gyroscope to maintain tracking if a GPS signal is lost.

“Because of the success of our first fingerprint secured PND last year, the MEDION GoPal P4425, we wanted to add this same theft-deterrent feature to our newest MEDION GoPal products,” said Mark Jendrzok, MEDION AG’s Director of Product Management, Mobile Computing. “We’re pleased to further expand our relationship with the world’s leading provider of fingerprint sensors and bring peace of mind to owners of these innovative new navigation systems through the integration of AuthenTec’s TruePrint fingerprint sensor technology.”

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.
