Navman iCN 550 GPS unit review

 

Should GPS units not only tell you were to go but also help you avoid that bank holiday traffic. We think so and so does Navman. But has the company got it right with its latest GPS offering the iCN 550 with Traffic Pack bolt-on? We get on the road and...

Traffic information on the fly, petrol and parking button, easy to use interface

Requires your dashboard to be filled with wires, Traffic element an afterthought

A perfectly good system only spoilt by the roughness of the design. Unless you’re an early adopter this is probably one to steer clear of

Stand-alone GPS sat nav technology that could put an end to queueing in traffic.

Unlike rival systems which require a Bluetooth connection via a GPRS-enabled mobile phone to receive traffic data, the great thing about the Navman iCN550 is that you don't require any additional hardware.

On a four and a half mile journey from Islington to East Finchley on a busy weekday afternoon the Navman unit achieved mixed results.

Don't waste your money on this product.

 

It works

No support, no new maps, no upgrades and slow service

It would be cool if it was solar powered

ICN 550 Review

 

Not a worthy investment. Useability on the fly is poor. The speed is mediocre. Any other product at 300 MHz or less probably won't do well for speed. Even though it gets you "there" so do other products. It's price point isn't bad but for me it's best...

The product will get the user where the user wants to go ; Lots of points of interests (POI)

The product will get the user where the user wants to go but it often is the long way. There are settings to allow the user to adjust for quickest or shortest combinations but they are almost meaningless. The user cannot easily build a route that is...
