Sony has got the skills to come up with amazing ideas while Tom Tom claims to have the capability to help people drive through any road in the US / Canada (or even worldwide) without getting lost. These two giants have teamed up to come up with a device that looks sexy and yet be superior as a GPS navigation system. Sony will now be shipping the all new XNV-770BT and XNV-660BT across the Atlantic sometime in November.

“We are delighted to work with Sony to deliver powerful, feature-rich navigation to their savvy consumers, ensuring a stress-free, enjoyable drive,” said Giles Shrimpton, managing director, TomTom Automotive. “Our joint innovations in this arena will incorporate flexible hardware design with standard interfaces that allow for easy updating in the future.”

The XNV-770BT comes with a seven inch capacitative touch screen while the XNV-660BT comes with a 6.1 inch touchscreen. Both will come with USB ports on their rear so that iDevice connections are possible. They will also have multi-channel audio playback and ofcourse both will come pre-loaded with maps of US and Canadian roadways.

Tom Tom claims to have roadmaps of over 1 million miles of roads across US and Canada which can easily be way above any other GPS providing company in America.
