In a rather bold and unprecedented move for a CE manufacturer, the Amcor company rolled out no less than six different PNDs back in the second half of 2007, each of them however targeting a different “audience”. And one of the respective GPS devices is the 3750 model, which provides certain interesting navigation features but, more importantly, has a completely different hardware structure than the other similar devices available on the market.
Thus, the 3750 is built around a 22-channel Centrality Atlas-II receiver, accompanied by a Centrality Atlas-II 300Mhz CPU and 64 MB Flash / 64 MB RAM, used for running both the Microsoft Windows® CE .Net Core version 5.0 and the iGO / Tele Atlas navigation software. As you can see, Amcor bet it all on Atlas in the case of this particular model, but it remains to be seen whether this choice will pay off or not.
Since we've mentioned earlier the navigation issue, it's important to note the fact that the PND has been equipped with a 3.5-inch TFT full-color touch screen, which provides a 320 x 240 pixels resolution, 350 cd / m2 brightness level and 16.7-million colors. Furthermore, the navigation maps come on SD cards, as the device supports memory cards with storage capacities of up to 2 GB, while the 3750 is capable of offering spoken instructions either via the built-in speakers or headphones.
The device also offers users a premium set of multimedia features, which include photo viewing (bmp, jpg, gif, png), music (MP3, WAV) and video (AVI) playback. Furthermore, the whole device is powered by a rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery (1000 mAH), although no information regarding the available functioning life is provided.
The Amcor 3750 retails for around 150 US dollars, which is a very small price to pay for such a product, compared to all of the other similar PNDs available on the market.
