Navman S30 S Series Car GPS Navigator Review

 

Like the famous HP, Navman was a garage start-up company however, it began in the very different location - Auckland, New Zealand. The company name was changed in the early 1990s to Navman which came from the name of one of the world's first chart...

Entry-level but usable sat-nav device

Strong signal ; Clear directions ; Includes in-car charger and dock ; 3D maps

No expansion installed ; Plastic looks a little cheap

Navman S30

 

Navman has dramatically overhauled their portable navigation systems, and the first of the new S-Series models is the S30 - an entry-level unit that c...

Stylish design, compact window mount, vivid interface, keyboard says letters out loud, preloaded speed and red light camera alerts

Re-routing times a little slow, no text-to-speech

The S30 is an ideal GPS unit for those on a budget. The entry level unit combines a stylish design with good maps, a reasonable feature set and a very competitive price.

Navman S30 Sat-Nav

 

The Navman S30 is entry-level, but does that mean it's not up to the job? Jon finds out…

In navigation mode, there are more thoughtful touches. The most notable are the extremely clear and realistic next-turning icons that appear in the top left of the screen. On every other sat-nav I've used, these are picked from a library of generalised...

Navman S30 review

 

The S30 3D's headline feature is its ability to display landmarks in three dimensions. This didn't impress us very much, as the model database is small and doesn't even include Wembley Stadium. Fortunately, this isn't the S30's only trick.

Navman S30 3D Sat-Nav

 

It's one of the cheapest sat-navs around, and it now comes with 3D landmarks.

The S30 3D’s headline 3D model system may be a disappointment, but at least you don’t pay a premium for it. In fact, this is one of the cheapest standalone sat-navs currently on the market. Yet it's still a very capable device, and easy to use. For...

Navman S30 3D review

 

The Navman S30 3D is the entry-level model in Navman's new range of personal navigation devices. It has a 3.5in display which, after having used the larger 4.3in widescreen models, we found a little cramped. This is particularly so as the default...

The Navman S30 3D makes a valiant attempt to distinguish itself as a local travel guide rather than a point-to-point navigation tool with the addition of 3D landmarks and its strong directory listings. Its compact dimensions lend it to being carried in...

The smallest of Navman's new S-series has a big job to do if it is to compete against the market leaders

Almost on a par with the best value sat-nav – TomTom's ONE – and with features that might make it more attractive to you

Navman S30 satellite navigation device

 

For the S-Series of portable satellite navigation devices, Navman has made a number of design changes. These, we're told, are the result of focus group input from consumers, so ought to be useful refinements, rather than outré extras just for the sake...

Navman has built on its already solid satnav foundations with this completely new range of widescreen models. The Navman S30 is an intelligent and unobtrusive device, which will get you where you need to be without making a song and dance about it, and...
