Home Reviews Mobile Devices Review: Navman MY300LMT/MY350LMT

Manufacturers of standalone SatNav devices need to deliver features at an excellent bang-for-buck ratio to compete with in-car factory fitted as well as the many other GPS enabled devices on hand today.


Device convergence has seen the rise of sophisticated navigation applications hitting our smartphone platforms and, for a fraction of the cost, providing features we have come to expect on specialised equipment.

Released in the second half of 2012, the Navman MY300LMT and MY350LMT are examples of feature laden SatNavs with a budget price tag that consumers have come to expect.

Both models include 664 Mhz processor and clear 5” screen with resistive touch technology that adequately conveys menu selections, but struggles a little with multi-touch map exploring.   

Bluetooth paring was easy to set up and the separate physical mount worked fine, although the power connection high on the right hand side can be fiddly, particularly for removal after parking, better to integrate power with the mount.

These Navman models offer lifetime map upgrades, which is a refreshing (and most obvious) change and the MY350LMT model also includes Improved Premium Driver alerts and Landmark Guidance PLUS.  These features are aimed at using what the driver sees ahead as reference points beyond giving distance instructions.
