Play back MP3, WMA or DRM music from subscription services
Your GoGear player supports the latest Windows Media Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology from Microsoft that enables it to recognise and play back music purchased or subscribed from online audio services using the same technology. Or create your own MP3 or WMA music files by ripping your audio CDs and transferring them onto your player to savour the vast universe of digital music available.
1.5" Full colour display for easy navigation and album art
3.8 cm (1.5") full colour screen allows you to navigate easily within the control menu or the music files of your GoGear player. Plus, you can flip through your photo collection while enjoying your music on the go.
Up to 25-hour music or 4-hour video playback
Forget about the hassle of having to recharge your GoGear player battery constantly. This long-lasting player allows you to savour your favourite tunes for up to a whopping 25 hours of continuous music playback or up to 4 hours of video playback — all on a single charge. Now you can sit back and listen to music all day long or watch the equivalent of 2 movies back-to-back wherever you go.
Direct charging from PC via USB
Charge your GoGear player battery quickly and easily from your PC via USB. Connect your player to your PC with the cable provided and follow the necessary prompts and your PC will provide the power for charging your player within a few seconds. Enjoy the convenience of doing away with a separate recharger.
Folder view to organise and view media files as you do on your PC
Folder view is an optional directory view of the GoGear player that lets you view all the files on your player as if it were a computer. Once you select Folder view, opening any supported file (i.e. music, pictures or videos) is as easy as selecting the file and hitting Play.
Easy video downloads from the Internet to your GoGear
View videos on the go with Internet Video Download, an easy-to-use feature that lets you download videos from video sharing sites (YouTube, MySpace or Google Video) to your GoGear. Install the PC application provided, connect your GoGear to your PC and use Internet Explorer to visit your favourite video sharing site. Choose a video and click the Download button that appears when you hover the mouse cursor over the video. No need to wait — just move on to other videos and start downloading more.
FM radio with RDS and 20 presets for more music options
RDS (Radio Data System) is a communications protocol standard that allows digital information to be transmitted over FM radio broadcasts. RDS-enabled FM radio receivers can display useful information including station identity, programme details and song title and artist etc. You can store a desired station as a preset channel on your GoGear player at any time. With the ability to store 20 preset radio stations, you can quickly access your favourite radio station without having to tune the frequencies manually each time.
Easy and intuitive user interface with album art display
GoGear's easy and intuitive user interface is powered by advanced navigation technology. It not only helps to ensure quick and smooth navigation but also an enjoyable multimedia experience that doesn't take long to master. Smart features like Album Art—which displays album artwork embedded in music files—enables you to have a richer experience, just like in the good old days when you would view the cover of a CD or LP while enjoying your music.
Voice recording to take notes or record anything, anytime
Voice recording converts your GoGear player into a handy dictation machine. Besides playing music or listening to the radio, you can also record notes or reminders for work or school, record shopping lists and phone numbers – even song lyrics. By pressing the recording button and speaking into the built-in microphone, voice messages are compressed and stored in the built-in internal memory. Voice recording gives you a highly portable voice recorder allowing you to record anything, anytime and anywhere!
