Home Reviews Mobile Devices Navman – 7” does matter

GPS maker Navman have released a 7” portable GPS aimed at vision challenged drivers. It works well for short-sighted motorists.

The EZ2Y270LMT has a 7” diagonal screen, lifetime maps and SUNA traffic updates, SmartFind keyword search, Bluetooth hands free, and landmark/lane guidance on tricky intersections.

Navman software runs on Mac and Windows and makes regular map updates simple – just plug in the USB cable.

Recommended price is $279 for the 7” and $169 for the 5” version.

Comment

I have been following the portable GPS segment for a few years – when 3.5” was considered a giant screen. I currently use a 5” Navman SmartGPS and I am tempted to buy the 7” – beats putting on glasses in traffic!

Most GPS – regardless of brand - do a creditable job of getting from A to B – some do it better. Navman has become my favourite ‘user interface’ and I like the multiple route offering (it will identify fastest, slowest, with and without tolls etc.)

It also has one of the better information readouts in a pop down box and speed limit and traffic camera alerts.

I am also a fan of Nokia’s HERE maps which it uses - these seem to have better coverage than other brands.
