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
