VIEWSONIC PJ258 - pounds 600
Viewsonic's PJ258 projector uses the company's VideoDock technology to throw your iPod's video content on to the nearest vertical surface. It's a 1024x768 design and features VGA and S-video inputs for hooking up PCs, DVD players and such. Sourcing a home cinema system from an iPod does seem something of a cart-before-the-horse approach, but as they say if you can, do.
NOKIA N76 - pounds 270
Another month, another Nokia multimedia smartphone. Pretty as well as functional, with a clamshell form factor, glass external screen and flat stainless steel keypad all squeezed in Nokia also manage to fit in a 3.5mm headphone jack and external controls into its form for good measure, making this a sensible music device.
MAGELLAN CROSSOVER GPS - pounds 300
In the past adventurers who wanted sat-nav for the road, the hills and the sea needed a couple of devices. Not any more. An AD-card swap is all that's required to transform this 3D mapping, text-to-speech, TMC-ready sat-nav into a waterproof GPS with topographical maps. Marine mode kicks it into nautical miles, with a compass and waypoints.
IRECORD - pounds 160
This device has inputs for standard composite and S-video sources, and it outputs MP4 video to your iPod, PSP or USB storage device. A word of warning - it won't play on your iPod until you sync with iTunes and you can't schedule recordings... but it's still well worth buying.
