Navman S100 GPS unit

 

The entry-level GPS unit in Navman's S-Series Platinum range of in-car GPS units, the S100 lacks built-in traffic, FM transmission and Bluetooth, but ...

It is very simple to use and has really good features such as an mp3 player built in, maps are easy to view whilst driving and setup takes about 5 seconds. It is so slim and really good looking and the menu is simple when ur in a hurry. The gps can...

I found the setup really easy as i am new to sat navs and love the slim model, it fits in my pocket easily and the screen is easy to see

Touch screen isn't always responsive have to give it a few sharp taps before it clicks and it struggles to find a gps signal often
