DUAL XNAV43HD PORTABLE NAVIGATION SYSTEM DELIVERS HD RADIO TECHNOLOGY WITH REAL TIME TRAFFIC

-- Clear Channels Live Traffic Updates Headline Rich Feature Set,

Establishing New Benchmark In Mobile GPS Value --

HEATHROW, FL, January 6, 2009 Dual Electronics has announced a new flagship model to its portable navigation device (PND) lineup that re-defines value in mobile GPS systems. Featuring built-in HD Radio technology and live traffic updates via a generous 4.3 color touchscreen, Duals XNAV43HD brings todays most useful and wanted navigation features to a mass market audience.

Navigation systems with live traffic information are becoming must-have technology, says Robb Groner, Duals Vice President of Product Development. Our new XNAV43HD delivers this crucial feedback through HD Radio TMC broadcasts, along with a deep complement of additional convenience features that typify Duals always outstanding value. Now advanced PND capabilities are available to virtually everyone.

The flagship XNAV43HD alerts the driver to real-time traffic conditions through HD Radio TMC (Traffic Message Channel) broadcast by Clear Channels HD Radio stations. The traffic data for this service is created by a combination of Clear Channels Total Traffic Network and INRIX floating car data. All the data that is provided is continuously monitored and updated by Clear Channels staff of local traffic data producers.

Dual was one of the first brands to feature built-in HD Radio tuners in its mobile entertainment systems, and is now one of the first to offer HD Radio technology and TMC reception in a PND device. In an age of fluctuating fuel prices, drivers can now reach their destinations with maximum savings of time and money.

The XNAV43HD features intuitive operation and a simple interface via a large, bright 4.3 TFT LCD color touchscreen, highlighted by a built-in light sensor that automatically dims the display in daylight conditions. The units fast 533 MHz processor is fed by NAND flash memory, assisted by both 128 MB of random access memory and an external slot for SD/SDHC/MMC cards.

Text-to-speech for announcing navigation guidance is included along with complete maps of North America and millions of points of interest. The XNAV43HD can also play music, videos and photos from SD/SDHC and MMC cards.

Duals XNAV43HD comes complete with a 12-volt power cord that charges its internal lithium ion battery, lasting up to four hours without a power source, as well as a USB cable, a cradle and suction cup for easy dash or windshield mounting.

The Dual XNAV43HD has a suggested retail price of $279.99 and will be available later this spring.
