Navman MY50T GPS unit

 

The mid-range model in Navman's latest MY range of GPS units, the MY50T features built-in traffic support, lane guidance and 3D junction views. But it...

Design, choice between glide or tap UI, included traffic subscription, large display, 3D junction views, lane guidance

No Bluetooth hands-free, overzealous school zone warnings, map is missing some 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...

Step up to the MY50T and you'll get a larger than normal 4.7-inch touchscreen, traffic messaging with a lifetime Suna subscription, and Google or TrueLocal searches via a Bluetooth internet connection.

Bluetooth, but not for hands-free ; More illegal turns than we'd like ; Overzealous school zone warnings

Thanks to its larger than normal screen, good looks, keyword destination searches, banishment of swipe to scroll and the inclusion of traffic messaging at AU$400, the MY50T warrants inclusion in any GPS shortlist. If Navman had decided to use Bluetooth...

Navman MY50T GPS

 

The early pioneer of GPS devices for cars Navman has just released its 2009 series which includes everything from a budget option through to an all-dancing deluxe model. While the MY50T is next in line after the entry-level MY30 it manages to include...

The larger than normal 12cm (4.7-inch) touch-screen is the first welcome sight, followed by the appealing design and super-thin form factor of the device.

MY50T - OK this is my first GPS and had it for 15 months. Received an email to update my maps with instructions about 6 months ago and this worked fine. I like the detail on the screen compared to other GPS' like Tom Tom. The main negatives I have...

Large Screen, free maps, POI

sluggish performance when first turned on

I noticed my Navman 50T stopped receiving SUNA traffic updates for Sydney in August 2010. Please check before buying if TMS life time subscription is still available for this model.My next GPS will not be a Navman, ever..

Large screen

Road speed limit indicator not available, Traffic updates stopped after 6 months, prolific errors with invalid left , right and U turns even for major arterial roads

ditto to all of the above criticisms. I want to thank all the reviewers. I thought I must have developed early onset dementia after trying to use the bluetooth.
