Navman N40i GPS receiver


Mobile phones have digital cameras, so why can't GPS units? That's the thinking behind Navman's N40i GPS with NavPix.

Mapping software easy to use, digital camera, NavPix, Petrol and Parking buttons

Camera could become just another gimmick

We've been fairly hard on Navman in the past as its always seemed to only get two-thirds of the way to offering a complete package.

Navman N40i


Navman's N40i has good GPS performance and is even somewhat attractive — for a GPS. Read our Australian review.

Quick triangulation ; NavPix technology ; Can download additional photo waypoints

Battery life can be quite variable

Our one concern with the N40i came in terms of its battery life. Navman rates the N40i as being good for "up to" five hours battery life. This is a nebulous figure, at least partially because by default the N40i switches itself off on battery power...

Good GPS


Good build quality, reception, and screen.

The only thing that this unit lacks is the fact that it does not say the street by name.

Product Specifications

The N40i includes an integrated digital camera for taking NavPix to create an unmistakable reminder of your chosen destination. So you can find your way there - no matter how far away it is - whenever you want. The NavPix itself combines exact geographical information with an image, so whether it's the Arc de Triumphe, Trajan's Arch or the Cinquantenaire Arch, you'll easily find your way back. The slim N40i brings together advanced software with ease of use and a finger-friendly, 3.5" touch screen. What's more, that ease of use is carried over into the intuitive display and GPS navigation features. So you can choose whether to use a NavPix or an address, including postcodes, to find your way to a destination reliably and accurately every time. To minimize any surprises during your exploration further afield, the safety camera data was preinstalled and maps added. This makes the N40i great value-for-money GPS navigation. What's more, there are nearest Fuel and Park buttons to help you find somewhere to park or fill up - as well as compatibility with the optional T1 Traffic Pack for real-time traffic updates where available.
