Navman F20

 

Just in time for the holiday shopping season, Navman introduces the F20 GPS, the company's entry-level GPS navigation system. A no-frills device, it's affordable and provides easy-to-comprehend guidance.

Easy to learn and use menu system. Good value. Sensitive SiRF Star III Receiver. Route demonstration mode.

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

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The POI database is outdated, and voice-guided directions are hard to hear.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

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...

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

Construction quality lowers rating from 9 to 5.

 

With all the other good qualities, I could tolerate wrong-side-of-the-road problem. However, as others have indicated, the USB port broke inside the unit.

Great maps. Easy to use. Excellent verbal directions

Several times, it indicated street addresses on the wrong side of the road. Was directed to take a U-turn when I was at my address

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.
