They say a picture is worth a thousand words but now they could be worth a thousand miles too. The Navman iCN750 is a dashboard mountable GPS device with a generous 4-inch ‘hi-def’ touchscreen that is one of the first to also include a built-in 1.3 megapixel camera.

The camera can be used to grab a few memories while on the road but the cool part is that any photos taken automatically get tagged with the coordinates of where the image was shot. These photos are then stored in the Navman’s database so in the future returning to a favorite spot is as easy as loading up the image and the device will then give you driving instructions on how to get back there. No more having to jot down addresses or use your own memory whatsoever. Best of all Navman has also launched the NavPix website where you can upload your own photos or download shots taken by others which of course also include the location’s exact coordinates allowing you to easily find and visit them.

The Navman iCN750 can be found at various online retailers for about $700.
