The Kapten Talking Pocket GPS system and iPod Shuffle share one thing in common, both don't have displays, and for good reasons.
This palm-sized unit relies on voice recognition technology, which means it accepts verbal input where you will need to make navigation requests simply by talking to the Kapten, and will be given spoken directions in return. For those with some vision, you can keep your eyes on the sidewalk, while offering the blind pedestrian spoken directions. It works with a Bluetooth-enabled cellphone as well just in case you need a hands-free kit on the go.
The device is currently available with a US-only map, you can also purchase a model with a Canadian map separately.
