LG LN800


LG's top of the line LN800 GPS unit adds longer battery life, a light sensor, and a larger touch screen to what already was a great value for money un...

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

Screen has poor viewing angle, sluggish re-routing times, no headphone jack, extra cost over lesser model

The LN800 offers a larger screen and a light sensor, but we don't think its worth the extra asking price over the LN800. Still, it's a solid unit with a fair list of included features.

LG LN800


The LN800 is a solid first crack at the Aussie GPS market with its good looks, light sensor and text-to-speech, but it may not be enough to tempt punters.

Spoken street names improve the GPS experience ; Looks and feels like a quality item ; Auto day and night modes good for safety and eyes

No Bluetooth ; Inconsistent "Map" button location ; Multimedia features a waste of time

As we discovered when we tested the TomTom One XL, the Sensis mapping data that's used in the LN800, and almost all Australian GPS units, is less than perfect: there are phantom streets, roundabouts where there aren't any and missing traffic restrictions.

Bought the unit in Adelaide. I returned from South Africa 5 month later to Brisbane. Trying to update the badly out of date unit and buying the car power cable(left behind in South Africa), I got now where. More than one place told me to get the...

good as a weak flash light when you are looking for something. Well it does get you in the area only

Update problems. Time wasting routes. Local stores indications/data are very poor. No directional indicators to locations. General larger map view and getting a picture of the area is difficult. Saved locations does not bring you back to the exact...

LG LN800


It is a basic unit but for its purpose is brilliant.

Ease of use ; Signal strength... It works inside where others will not detect a signal ; Solid construction.. some others are like $1 plastic toys

Supplied with 06 maps but was lucky enough to strike co-operative person at LG who sent out 07 maps with no fuss
