Navman announces new S series GPS systems
Navman, a manufacturer of Global Positioning Systems (also known as GPS) with base in New Zealand, has recently announce a couple of new systems, more exactly four devices that will most certainly please everyone because the prices can go from £300 to £150, which means that (almost) everyone has a chance to buy one thanks to the low-budget models.
The best model and also the most expensive one, is known as Navman S90i and its price in USD dollars is close to $600. This system comes with the usual 4.3-inch touchscreen display and has maps from the European Tele Atlas. Besides the obvious bluetooth function that every decent GPS must have, the S90i has 2GB of built-in memory, and processor from Samsung running at 400Mhz.
Other features include a slot for SD/MMC memory cards, and a 2-megapixel camera to take photos or shoot videos. One positive point goes for the real-time traffic support, which in this case comes with a free lifetime subscription, meaning that the $600 are well spent in case you are a traffic maniac and don’t like to wait in the traffic.
As for the other models and their prices, there is the Navman S70 and S50 that also feature a 4.3-inch display, but on the other hand don’t come with all the features as the S90i. The price tag is £200 ($400) for the S70, and £180 ($360) for the S50.
The low-budget model – S30 – has a smaller 3.5-inch LCD screen, and doesn’t come with bluetooth or traffic info.
