Navman S70 and S50 S Series Car GPS Navigator Review


Navman have obviously put in some heavy design work developing their new S Series car GPS navigators having made 500 individual improvements. The S50 and S70 both have an attractive, smart look with a silver casing finish with generously curved edges,...

Navman S70 Review


The Navman S70 fits just above the similarly styled S50 but contains European maps alongside its innovative NavPix technology.

Navman have produced a low priced quality product that features the excellent NavPix technology, great screen and performance to match. Only let down slightly by its route-recalculations which we felt could have been a touch quicker.

Ease Of Use

Very easy to set up and use. Accurate maps especially in rural France. Very quick to respond when alternate route is needed. Kids love it!

Navman S70


Cheap Big screen

Speaker is poor. When setting speaker high enough to hear it distorts the sound. The On/Off/Reset switch is ridiculous. When switching off it's too easy to go another click and then it resets deleting all previous favourites. The speed camera sound and...

Navman S70


Nice clear display, lightweight.

Major bad point - the S70 3D takes far too long to find the current position from switch on, up to 5 or 6 minutes and sometimes more (works OK when it eventually finds the current position). Minor bad point, no 240v mains charge unit supplied.

Navman S70


Large, clear screen that can be viewed in 2D or 3D. Nice product with European maps and bluetooth.

The contacts list does not appear to sync with a Blackberry, although the Sat Nav still takes and receives calls ok via bluetooth. The soft case supplied protects the product from scratches but a more solid version would help to protect the screen when...
