Aside from the navigation, the nvis also have built-in jpeg viewers, world clocks, and currency converters. After a few trips with this little gizmo, you'll wonder how you survived without it. The nvi 200 starts at $320.

The World's Fastest Diesel
The whole remarkable story of the JCB DieselMax land speed record car-from the JCB chairman's boyhood dream to the 350.092-mph, record-breaking runs on August 23, 2006-is recorded in this book by the project's biographer, David Tremayne. The streamliner vehicle is powered by the twin-turbocharged JCB444 diesel engines that eventually yielded 750 hp. In July 2006, the car was being tested at more than 100 mph and approached the 200-mph mark. Just a few weeks later, the first of three records was set at the Bonneville Salt Flats, with the magic 350-mph barrier broken. It makes a great coffee-table book for any diesel enthusiast, and The World's Fastest Diesel can be purchased online for approximately $40.
