Navman N40i

 

The Navman N40i sits in the middle of the company's new range of dedicated in-car GPS units and offers convenient fuel and parking buttons, a 3.5in to...

Navman N40i GPS receiver review

 

Mobile phones have digital cameras, so why can't GPS units? That's the thinking behind Navman's N40i GPS with NavPix. The Navman N40i is a mid-range GPS device for those looking for something more than the TomTom One but less expensive and feature...

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

Camera could become just another gimmick

Finally Navman gets top marks

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...

Navman N40i GPS Navigation Review

 

This article reviews the Navman N40i GPS navigation system. I've tested a couple of Navman systems before which have been disappointing so I was interested to see if the N40i would fare any better. The N40i does have one trick up its sleeve, a built-in...

Fast, reliable, excellent product for money and performance

 

I bought this in Oct 2006 and it actually helped me drive in the Boston downtown, Columbus OH, Washington State, Oregon and Iowa. The processor is really fast as well as it can calculate real fast back on track (like 4/5sec only) if you miss a turn....

Fast processor w/ very fast back on track; maps already loaded onto 2GB internal card; Love NavPix Camera; 2D/3D map views as well as summary of all the turns

Sometimes trouble in restarting from standby mode. No text-to-speech directions

Does the job.

 

If you want to get somewhere, it will show you how to get there. That works well. Other functions, particularly the POIs, are quite poor and seem like a gimmick. You should be able to totally re-organise POIs your own way. You can set it to display...

The basic navigation function is quite good. Camera is poor quality, but still useful for recording where you have been with GPS co-ords stored in the EXIF data

POI functions are next to useless. It would be nice to be able to put in your own POIs to replace the built in POIs, but they seem hard coded

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.
