LG has jumped into the portable GPS market, and their entry level LN500 unit certainly provides bang for your buck. Featuring text-to-speech technolog...

Text-to-speech technology, ease of use, design, Destinator ND software, price, bundled accessories, red light and speed camera warnings

Screen has poor viewing angle, sluggish re-routing times, no headphone jack

At this price, the LN500 is an excellent choice, especially for a first time user. Text-to-speech technology, solid Destinator software and a stylish, slim design are enough to put this near the top of your list if you are on a budget

LG is hoping that this good-looking GPS unit with text-to-speech technology will entice you away from the established names in the field.

Outlook Yet another big name is trying to muscle its way into Australia's portable GPS market. Whether LG has done enough to entice punters away from established names like Mio, Garmin and TomTom is something we can only determine in a year's time....

no software update. after 1 year this unit is now going into the bin.what a waste of money.

absolutly none

lg have produced a stinker and i will endeavor never to buy lg again. once they sell a unit they should give some support even for a couple of years. perhaps they tought i'd go out and buy a newer lg unit. no way, i like my money

Useless. You cannot update it. The software that comes with the unit has NO field for updating. There is no update info or for that matter, no info at all on LG's website.

Text to speech

Text to speech is US or IK ONLY. No updates
