Routing profiles limited to shortest and quickest routes. No multimedia players. No multisegment routing.

Navman F20

 

Navman's F20 skips the frills and gets you from point A to point B for an affordable price.

Inexpensive ; Easy to use ; Dedicated buttons for finding gas stations and parking areas ; Battery charges in car for outside use

Currently no option for live traffic or weather ; Can't plot multiple waypoints ; No outlet power cord or USB cable

Navman F20

 

The Navman F20 is well designed and attractive, with a charcoal-gray case. The unit is easily swapped between cars, as it's a compact 3.1 inches high by 4.5 inches wide by 0.9 inch thick, and weighs just 7.1 ounces. Navman kept external controls...

The affordable, compact Navman F20 provides accurate directions and is easy to use. The unit includes maps of North America and a points-of-interest (POI) database.

The POI database is outdated, and voice-guided directions are hard to hear.

The Navman F20 is a reliable, portable navigation device for first-time buyers or anyone looking for an accurate, intuitive, and affordable GPS unit.

Intuitive user interface, Convenient parking and fuel buttons, Compact size and weight, External volume controls, 3.5in touch screen

No AC adapter or USB cable included, No red light or speed camera warnings, Sluggish re-routing times in some instances, Battery life could be improved

As a basic, entry-level GPS unit at this price, the F20 does quite a fine job. It doesn't include speed or red light camera warnings and is thin on included accessories, but an easy to grasp interface and solid maps provide a pleasing navigational...

Navman F20

 

Navman's F20 portable GPS is aimed at users after a simple and reliable navigation system, but it still includes features found on much more expensive models as well as few handy traits of its own.

Fast and accurate route calculation ; Fuel stations and parking buttons ; Good value

Poor display ; Lacking some features

The Navman website has a downloadable manual, as well as an online technical support feature and customer service telephone number.

The F20 is damned by the similarly-priced TomTom which is superior in every way.

Girly Navigation'- Navman F20 Review

 

A SatNav system for girls and it's not pink!We'll not quite but having dedicated buttons for parking and petrol does suggest novice SatNav users. We test Navman's new low cost GPS system.

I wish I'd bought a Garmin instead!

 

I've owned the Garmen older model Color GPS about the size of a small TV. I wish I'd upgraded to another Garmen in lieu of the lower priced Navman Unit. The battery quickly failed in the Navman within a year of use and no longer holds a charge. Often...

It turns on

Absolutely no USA map upgrades available anywhere, and never free. $149 plus by purchasing another SD map card. NO US SUPPORT AT ALL ; Poor volume on voice, annoying by talking TOO MUCH

Product Specifications

GPS navigation should help you get where you want to go easily, reliably and accurately. The F20 is Navman's simplest, most reliable GPS navigation system. Take the F20 out of its box and it's ready to use with a completely redesigned menu display on its high-quality, finger-friendly 3.5" touch screen. And if you thought its class-leading GPS capabilities and features would command a high price, think again. The F20 introduces a wealth of new features previously only found on much more expensive GPS navigation systems. So, you get dedicated buttons to find the nearest petrol station or car park - ideal when you're somewhere unfamiliar, full postcode searches and the easy-to-use touch screen. The latest GPS technology is also included in the F20 to achieve that accuracy and reliability, meaning you get high-quality navigation straight out of the box. What's more, the F20 is made compatible with the optional T1 Traffic Pack for real-time traffic updates where you most need them - while using the F20 in your vehicle. And as you'll see with the Navman F20, there's now no longer any reason to fear GPS navigation bamboozling you on your journey.
