Great price for this edi, nice find!

Amazing price! Hotttt

Does this come with pda software? eg word excel etc
#4
Reviews are great. Does not seem to be able to be used as a PDA...at least I could not find reference to any hacks.
#5
This is an incredibly frustrating device - it works well as a navigator with the SIRF III chip but Fujitsu Siemens seem to have deliberately disabled the PDA functionality provided by their other N series models - and this probably excludes the use of the Tomtom software that is far superior to the Navigon supplied product. Maps are OK at present but longer term support is problematic.

TomTom 6 can be installed on the N100 see GPSPassion Forum

..................... Tomtom software that is far superior to the Navigon supplied product. Maps are OK at present but longer term support is problematic.


I don't agree completely with this comment. The Navigon software has some real advantages over Tomtom. It is not as easy to use I'll admit, but its Lane Assistant, Real Signpost Display, Better audio instructions and better night / day colour and brightness settings are all superior to the tomtom product.

Tomtom has some better itinerary planning and is generally more easy to use.

I have written a detailed review of the Navigon software (albeit on a different hardware platform which costs £249.99 - £369.99), with screenshots of all of these details. I am awaiting permission from ADMIN to post it because it is hosted on my webshop.

Essentially though this offer is giving you European maps for £144 when on other hardware it can cost £369.99 so it is a cracking deal.

As for long term support the Navigon software is used by Talex, Blaupunkt, Becker and Sony. It is one of the moest OEMed software platforms in Europe, so long term support is not an issue.

Similarly it is using Navteq maps which are known to be far superior to Teleatlas for N. Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, never mind the far flung European countries.

Tomtom does work as I have it running on ithe LOOX' desktop, easy to hack, easy to use and a very cool little device - the included navigator 6 software I think is still pretty good if u dont fancy playing around with it but it's dead easy to hack, somewhat limited use as a PDA becasue of the core version of windows used but for this money it's a steal!!!

Price now is £241.95 inc VAT. I wonder why?

Introduction

This review is intended to give the reader a clear understanding of the Navigon satnav software. Included in the review are several detailed screenshots which will allow the reader to get a clear understanding of how the system works, and why it is better (or worse) than other alternative products.

Summary

Likes:[LIST]
[*] Screen clarity
[*]Excellent verbal instructions
[*]Lane assistant
[*]Signpost display
[*]Intelligent Day / Night settings[/LIST]Dislikes:[LIST]
[*]Some options buttons consume too much screen space[/LIST]Ease of use:

This is a fairly easy to use device, offering simple means to navigate to a new destination. It isn't intuitive as a Tomtom, but it is certainly amongst the best we have tested.

Screen Quality:

Bear in mind this PDA has a 2.8" screen. The screenshots below are 3.5", but are the same resolution.

Visual and Audio Instruction:

The audio instructions given by the system are excellent. For example you might be told "Turn Right in 200 yards onto the A422". Most other systems omit the information about the road number. Having this imformation gives you much more confidence in the instruction at any kind of complex junction. We really like this feature.
For more information on the visual instructions please see the sequence of screenshots below:

The lane assistant as shown in Figure 2 is a big help at complex junctions on motorways and dual carriageways, giving plenty of warning of which lane you should aim to be in. [/LEFT]

Accuracy of Maps:

This software is using Navteq mapping and are very accurate. Navteq maps are known to be superior than Teleatlas if you are in Northern Ireland, Ireland, Scotland or Wales. If you need European maps then you should purchase the relevant European versions of these products.

Routing:

These devices offer a considerable degree of control over the routing choices. Like other satnav systems you can choose the fastest or the shortest route. There is also an "optimum" route which is between the two and takes into account fuel efficiency over the journey.
In addition to these choices you can also change the route by selecting whether you are in a Fast Car, Standard Car, Slow Car or Motorbike. These affect the arrival time calculation and also the choice of roads taken. Essentially you need to experiment with these options to see which suits your own preferences best.
You can also affect the route choices by choosing whther to use motorways, ferries, toll roads or take into account traffic information.

Postcode Support:

These devices support full 7 digit postcodes for defining destinations or waypoints.
Advanced Planning and Itineraries:

Both units allow you to define your own specific itineraries and save these for future re-use. Route points can be defined by entering and address, postcode or a point on the map.

POI Database:

This is a particular strength. Past experience with other satnav systems has shown the POI databases to be horribly out of date. The database on these units seems to be more accurate and the information more comprehensive (e.g: whether the petrol station is Esso, Shell, Jet etc) than with the likes of Tomtom. Also the way these points of interest are displayed on the screen is more informative and better presented.

Speed Camera Warnings:

Unknown for this device.


Congestion charge:

The congestion charge zone is considered a toll road and you can program the route profile to allow, avoid (if possible) or forbid the route to use these roads.

Night Day / Vision:

We particularly like the night / day vision options because you can define the screen brightness for day and night time use. Therefore when you change to night time viewing the colour scheme AND the brightness are then automatically adjusted. On many other systems only the colour scheme is changed and even these can still lead to unpleasant glare from the screen if the brightness is not adjusted as well.

thanks jdcampbell for the great review and screenshots, just ordered one myself

Now if someone can confirm that it is possible to unlock the PDA functionality nd use activesnyc to sync contacts and calender this could prove to be a must have gadget:)

Thanks EliTom. Glad you found the review useful.

Great review jdcampbell. You mentioned a 7 digit postcode, is that with a space in the postcode or without?
Nice find Edi, I was tempted but I'd need the speed camera warnings as well.

From what I have read on German sites about this StaNav there is a neat function that displays the speed limit and you can then set a warning with a user adjustable offset if you are driving too fast.

This is dependent upon the maps having the speed limit incorporated, but if this works then, depending on your driving style, should be more useful than "surfing2 known camera sites.;-)

Anyway I will check this out when I get mine. If it does not work then I may hack it a run tomtom, but the genearl reviews of the Navman software are very good, with some reviews saying it is prefered over tomtom

I have a Mio Mitec 269plus and a C710. The C710 has the Speed Camera warnings and a speed warning. The speed warning gets right on my..... and I ended up turning that function off.
Anyway, I'll wait for your comments when you have received it. Thanks.:thumbsup:

This software is Navigon, not from Navman.

The speed limits are only really present for Motorways. You can get full comprehensice speed camera data and warnings, but only by buying the Talex equipped Transonic hardware. This starts at about £249.99 for UK & Ireland only. So you can see that this Fujitsu deal for the European maps is a very good deal.

It treats a postcode as a continuous string so you just ignore the space

CV35 0SB would be CV350SB

BD5 6XP would be BD56XP

This is also available direct from Fujitsu for £139 inc VAT, and with 2 years return to base warranty, but cheapest delivery is £9, and with VAT, brings the total to £150.57. They are in stock at both ebuyer and Fuji, but of course you can get free delivery at ebuyer to keep the price at £139.
#26
Mine's arrived from ebuyer and I'm very pleased with it. Small, fits easily in a pocket and nice looking. Has full postcode search too. Seems to pick up satellites fairly quickly ( although does take a bit of time on very first search). I'm mainly using it for walking and it seems to update the route quickly. There's also a good off-line route planner when you can't get a signal ie indoors. There's a software update on the fujitsu Siemens website. It installed with no problems. A good efficient little device and sooooooo neat.
#27
hi all i'm in the market for a new sat nav, has anyone managed to get speed camera database on it, and how easy was it to do.
#28
Got one of these from ebuyer - £132.xx (with google check out & 5 day supersaver delivery (came in 3 days to NI with no surcharge). While it is small and thereofre a little challenging to read all the small detail it is a great little device. The Navteq maps for the NI are comprehensive (i.e. most of the country lanes are availble (I know I live on one) - and this is the first systme I have seen that have my location - TeleAtlis are a disgrace where NI is concerned with only A roads! Also the MP3 player is great!
#29
Depending on what version is already installed on this, the latest online update 1.57.00 includes video playback capability and there is also a video conversion tool to download.

This does look good. Is there any way to get maps on it that could be useful when hiking?

I would go for this one if I didn't get the £99 Navman Pin570 from Halfords.
Considering the SIRF III chip and better look, it worth the extra £30 (it's £129.99 with google checkout, right?)
#34
Came this morning, amazing bit of kit, but I think mines been pre-washed, it's absolutely tiny, would fit in a fag packet and I'm worried:-
A) I'll lose it
B) I'll sit on it
C) My eyes aren't that good!
#35
Just purchased this and the price at checkout was £119.25

Please update the OP price.

No and No

It it basically a cut down PDA. Its primary function is a GPs which it does very well IMHO
