£98.11 using 2-3 business day delivery option

Pocket LOOX N100 Series provides everyone on the move with ease to use navigation. It offers mobile navigation in the lightest, smallest and most flexible design with entertainment from a unique music playing feature.

Outperforming even larger fix installed navigation solutions, The Pocket LOOX N100 Series is the first pocket navigator with the brand new NAVIGON software MobileNavigator|6.

Weighing only 100 grams, the new Pocket LOOX N100 Series is the lightest and smallest navigation system on the market.

That's why it is perfect for any pocket and can be used, whether you are driving, cycling or on foot. A user interface, which is visually very easy to follow, ensures a uniquely ease of use. Either when entering a street, postcode or location or, when listening to the integrated MP3 music player (also compatible with WMA and AAC format), you receive perfect guidance through the menu.

Microsoft Windows CE 5.0 Core Version supports persistent store - saves all data even if battery runs out.

This must be the cheapest price for this Loox!

Thanks Racoon.

Think I'll stick to my N73!

If you wanted to use this in your car, am I right in thinking you would need to buy the cradle and power adapter in addition to this? I note PCW are charging £33 for the power adapter alone. Would sort of make it very uncompetitive compared to other proper car package satnav units if true.

here is an indepth review

Don't know much about GPS, so are the maps downloadable for free and does it tell you to turn left/right or do you have to keep an eye on the device while driving ?

Thing is, a mate is driving to Poland soon so will this help her ?
#10
apparently you can unlock these and use as a PDA and put other apps on.

Well i've bought one :) been missing my GPS since mine was stolen a while ago.
#12
Bagged one. Check out a few more reviews than the one posted here. Cnet and RegHardware have more favourable reviews.

Sounds like you can even install TomTom on these with a bit of tech savvy.

I think this runs Navigon software and therefore doesn't have full postcode search.

I have a Sat Nav with Navigon software on and it is such a right royal pain. You have to put the first part of the postcode in, for example "AB1 3" and then you have to try and find the street name. I find it really difficult especially when you get an address that doesn't have an obvious street name. One silly problem is sometimes a road may have a local name like London Road but is in the navigator as A431.

Full Postcode search is brilliant, you put the whole postcode in and it takes right to the door. ALways ask for full postcode search before buying a navigator.
#16
Great price and a good piece of kit. I've got mine on order.

Nice one!
#17
I have had one for a few months and they are great, you can enter the full postcode or a partial one and the street. they come with full EU maps. there is also a seamless EU map for cross border navigation out there ;)

I have mine set to use Memory Map / TomTom / iGO but Mobile Navigator 6 that comes installed is IMO by far the best.

...they come with full EU maps...

does this PCW item definitely come with full EU maps? Sales blurb at the site simply sez:
"Licence code for Country Map"
er, which country / countries? :thinking:
#19
I have 2 of these and they are brilliant. I paid about £120 off EBuyer and that was a bargain so I guess a new model is coming out so hence the silly price now at PC World. If you do your research or ask me nicely I`ll tell you how to put TomTom 6 Navigator and all the UK and Europe Speed Camera database on this ! (In simple terms you need to upgrade the firmware and add a patch onto the memory card using a PC which unlocks this PNA to a PDA)

It comes with a car cradle, and a lot of other cables for Car and Home Charging. The Navigon Software is very good and covers all of Europe BTW but if you want speed camera database for free then install TomTom.

Also it`s an excellent MP3 player and lastly it will play movies if you re-encode them and put on 3rd Party Movie Player.

TomTom One can`t touch this for being so versatile and it will fit in a shirt pocket !

Best Buy in my opinion !

Hmmm that makes it even more tempting! I see there instructions here on how to unlock it. http://www.eioohelppoo.org/~jaatinet/?p=241 I'm only put off by a few reviews saying it is slow.
banned#21
Seems to be out of stock with 10 day wait for new stock. As this is a discontinued item do you think there is much chance of the item being re-stocked? The website was willing to accept my order but not sure it is worthwhile if item is out of stock.
#22
I got one of these a few months ago - just get it if you want a satnav - it is first class - full postcode search blah blah!!!! it does the lost. AND if you live in Northern Ireland it has about 99.9% of all roads (even the wee ones) - it also does cross board routing so if your going from Dromore to Castleblaney it sorts it for you and when you cross the border it tell you about the khm and speed limits etc!

it is just cool....
#23
I had one of these used it for 2 weeks and got rid as it was just too slow, sometimes had to wait up to a minute for the unit to respond when inputting in on the gps software, took so long sometimes I thought it had froze on various occasions..

Bought a Tomtom One and have had no problems since..:thumbsup:
#24
Crazylegs, you must have had a faulty one as the 2 I have track the Gps really quickly. The only time its slow is when you first switch it on and it aquires the signal, I`ve driven at very high speed and its perfect in my car and tells you the speed of your car as well. I have a mac home computer and have encoded a DVD using Visual Hub Software (H.264 codec) and it plays movies brilliantly so theres nothing wrong with the processor on this baby (Yes I know it`s a small picture)

I bought one of these Ebuyer a couple of weeks ago. It came well packaged, its very small and neat with all of the clips chargers etc and seemed much more expensive then the £130 I paid (Actually I think its rrp originally was c.£300). However,


a) I found it a little slow and generally suffering from Windows CE Operating system type instability on which it is based (I have had pocket PC devices before and they all need rebooting regularly – not great if its a phone or a gps in a middle of a motorway!)


b)I attempted to update the software to the latest patch from the website, to be followed by updating the maps from a dvd which was provided (European maps noyt built in they have to be installed). It seemed to work fine but then froze on the reboot after the update and I spent a frustrating evening/night panicking as I needed this device for a trip to Italy. I was unable to bring it back to life (even though I am a techie and full time IT professional – the hotline had no ideas either). There was no roll back to the old software either.


Finally c) I also learnt Fujitsu was suspending development of the Loox range. E.g. see http://www.pdastreet.com/articles/2007/8/2007-8-15-Fujitsu-Siemens-to.html.


Obviously a bit of concern for things like updated maps etc


I then bought a Garmin Nuvi 270 off Amazon (as on HUKD c.£160). An all together more robust device. It heavier but seems more tough. It also has all of Europe as well as the US already built in. No need to install stuff from the PC. It does not crash or slow down either as its much more of a purposeful propriety device rather than a pda with ad on like the loox. I used it with good success all over the Amafli Coast, Pompei and Sorrento (and Italian roads are pretty dodgy).


My advice is although the Loox, loox good so to speak its really sluggish unreliable and long term support is doubtful. A proper GPS manufacturer like Tom Tom or Garmin is a much better bet. Only buy it if you really can't afford the extra spend on a pukka one and a prepared for some shortcomings.

This is not the case with the Loox, it has full postcode search.

I bought one a few months ago for about £130, and I love it. It's small enough to fit in your pocket, and has everything I need. Only thing it's missing is speed camera database, but you could buy a detector with the money you'll save vs. TomTom

I picked up one of these on Friday, seems a great price. I've not ordered from PC World Business before, to keep the postage down I chose the 2-3 day option. Has anyone else ordered from them before, order's still showing as "in progress", how reliable are they in getting orders posted on time? Do they only use Parceline to deliver?
#28
I ordered one on Friday - arrived today, delivered by parceline. Seems fine so far - as far as I can tell it does full postcode but doesn't know my postcode (house only been there since 1925...). Maps are v6.0, seems latest is v6.2.
#29
I called them today and it's due back in stock on the 14.09.07, order on hold will be despatched the next day...crossed fingers!

on the same day I received a cancellation e-mail for my "clearance item"(?!???)

I called today and definitely not going to be in stock:x

I'll go for the one on ebuyer then...
