Alpine Blackbird

Alpine Blackbird

There are plenty of portable navigation systems out there to choose from, but only one has Alpine's pedigree of GPS and music experience. The Alpine PMD-B100 Blackbird ($700) is a portable, handheld GPS system that comes with preloaded maps of the US and features a 3.6" touchscreen, a built-in antenna, and MP3 playback from the unit's SD slot. The perfect addition to any older car in which the closest thing to these features is a dash-mounted compass and a cassette player.
