Best Buy's Insignia GPS gets previewed

Insignia, Best Buy’s house brand, is launching two GPS units that come with cellular connectivity built-in – somewhat like the Dash GPS. The notable difference is that these two GPS units use Google Local search instead Yahoo Local search. We won’t ruin this dudes entire post but let’s just say, it sounds like a house brand product to us. 

Satellite lock was very slow on a rainy day; I got a couple of miles down the road before it locked.

Local search result lists give the distance to the destination, but not the direction.

Cellular reception with the Insignia has been spotty so far, though there seems to be some improvement following a firmware upgrade from 1.01 to 1.3.
