Navman MY500XT GPS unit


A replacement for Navman's previous flagship GPS unit, the S300T, the MY500XT is the hero of the company's latest MY series. It features built-in traf...

Design, capacitive touch screen, choice of glide or tap interfaces, keyword search, traffic capabilities, lane guidance and 3D junction views

Overzealous school zone alerts, map is missing red light cameras and 'no right turns', screen transitions are a little sluggish, not all phones compatible with Bluetooth, TMC antenna is built into charger not the actual unit

The Navman MY500XT's capacitive touch screen is a nice inclusion on this feature-packed GPS. The glide interface won't be to everyone's liking but it's much more responsive than previous versions and can now be turned off. The maps aren't perfect and...

Navman MY Series MY500XT


Navman has set a new standard in in-car navigation with its MY500XT. Not only does this GPS take you from point A to B; it also has a lot of features that will make travelling a breeze. It is now time to explore your city and enjoy the road ahead.

Responsive screen; Built-in traffic receiver; Weather updates; Local Search; Travel Book; Easy location search; Quick route calculation; 3D Junctions and Landmarks; FM Transmitter

In-car charger must be constantly plugged/unplugged; Bluetooth pairing problems with some mobile phones; Some instances when unit slowed down during pedestrian mode; No case to protect your GPS

Navman MY500XT: Bouquets and Brickbats


It's no secret that I found the Navman S200 appallingly irritating. So you can imagine my trepidation when I was accosted by a charming PR person (do they come in other flavours?), bubbling about the new Navman range, now with integrated traffic...

Navman MY500XT


Navman has added to the glut of in-car GPS navigation systems with the release of the MY500XT

Like other in-car navigation devices the MY500XT attaches to the windscreen with a suction cup and can be charged via the USB port on a computer or powered from the car's cigarette lighter

Thank the Lord I never had to use this useless crap in the Navy. No good for a Left-Hander. Cannot understand the stupid so-called computer language. Will not add to favourites (What favourites) It kept changing its mind and tried to keep sending me...

for the victims of a Navman product: I just found out that "Navman" is only a trademark registered by to overcome the barriers they built with their dodgy business structure you better send your complaints straight to Mitac Australia PTY...

Navman MY500XT


I owned another brand of GPS while living in America which I absolutely loved. Upon returning to Australia I wanted to get a GREAT GPS unit. I had a gazillion loyalty points on my credit card so decided to redeem almost all of them for the 500XT. I was...

Friday : Bought from Harvey-Norman, came preloaded with WCities and Lonely Planet guidebooks for whole of Australia and 3 years free map updates. Top of the range model. Great I thought!
