Food on the move


Finding a place to eat while you are driving is often pot luck and using a smartphone is illegal and chews up data allowances.

Navman has introduced Zomato (formerly Urbanspoon) to its MY650LMMT sat-nav that brings location based, offline searching and reviews to the GPS with the added advantage of giving directions to get there.

The Zomato guide lists over 40,000 restaurants and cafes across 20 Australian cities and 11,800 restaurant listings in NZ across 12 cities. You can select listings by location or food-type such as burgers, Italian food, tapas, pub food, seafood, Japanese cuisine and more. Simply choose the cuisine category you prefer Navman will generate a list of suggestions.

Current Navman MY650LMMT users can add Zomato user reviews to their device by downloading Navman’s latest software and map updates via Navman’s NavDesk software. Reviews are refreshed with each free map update.

The latest Navman MY650LMMT GPS is also packed with stress reducing safety features including its world first Landmark Guidance Plus - a feature that works by giving you spoken directions based on what you are seeing through your windscreen using visual cues such as the colours, brand names of buildings and displays brand and business logos to guide you.

3D landmarks such as Flinders Station or Queen Victoria Building are also presented on the MY650LMMT mapping screen giving you a better indication of where you should be heading. The sat-nav also comes with free lifetime monthly map updates, spoken safety alerts, live traffic updates.

Combined with features like live traffic updates, spoken safety alerts for speed and red light cameras and school zones, premium driver alerts for things like merging lanes and hairpin bends and speed limit alerts, it enables more confident driving in unfamiliar surrounds.

Its available online or at major retailers for A$199.
