Introduction

GPS or Global Positioning Service is one of the most useful free services out there, and the best part is it is available as the name implies globally. These small devices are tremendously useful and the only cost to the consumer is the initial purchase of the device itself. Using signals from multiple satellites to triangulate your location these small handheld devices can nearly pinpoint your location and help you find your way from point A to point B. In recent years great advances in these devices have taken place that make them easier to use, cheaper, and smaller. With so many devices in the market however, it becomes increasingly difficult to make a purchasing decision.

With so many companies on the market competing for a share of your money, Nextar decided to introduce a unit with a back up camera to gain the edge. The unit's name is I4-BC and it comes with a back up camera that is to be mounted on top of the license plate of the vehicle. Join me as I try to find out whether the I4-BC has what it takes to succeed in capturing the needs and the wants of the customers.
