Navman S90i review


Whats this - a satnav with digital camera? Genius idea, or convergence gone mad?

Value for money ; Widescreen display ; Built-in camera ; Easy-to-use interface

Bulky ; Fiddly widescreen mount ; Built-in camera ; Disappointing POI ; Lacks flair

The Navman is a solid, competent performer, but there's little here to separate it out from the ground. Even the novelty of a built-in digital camera fails to convince

The S90i is Navman's cream of the crop, and it is certainly a fine unit. The 2-megapixel camera adds flexibility for using NavPix.

Text-to-speech technology, stylish design, vivid interface, keyboard says letters out loud, preloaded speed and red light camera alerts, Bluetooth handsfree, NavPix 2-megapixel camera

Re-routing times are a little slow

Navman S90i GPS receiver review


The Navman S90 takes on TomTom and Garmin in the high-end satnav market, but can Navman deliever the goods? We get on the road to find out. The S90i is the flagship of the S-series and following a "dramatic redesign" of the company's satellite...

Interface, speed camera information, Navpix

Retro design, no voice input, no FM transmitter

The simple to read, crisp, clear interface is certainly going to win over drivers

Navman S90i GPS satellite navigation device


The S90i is Navmans top-of-the-line model in its S-series of GPS devices. It features a large 4.3in widescreen display, text-to-speech, Bluetooth handsfree calling and, of course, a leather pouch to carry it in. But the feature that really sets the...

This attractive and intuitive navigator is a welcome addition to Navman's S-series. It remains to be seen whether navigation by image will become a hit, but top marks to Navman for not just listening to feedback but acting on it too. Given its high-end...

Navman S90i review


Navman is one of the sat-nav big players, sitting happily up with Garmin and TomTom. Happily enough, that is, unless they were able to climb a couple more branches and rule the roost. Enter the S-series, of which this S90i is the flagship. The whole...

Navman S90i


We'd love to heartily endorse the S90i but, like the spurned high school prom queen in every slasher flick ever made, its surface beauty is marred by intermittent spurts of insanity, and so we can't.

Great interface ; Easy to use POI ; Excellent text-to-speech ; Bluetooth

Awful USB cradle ; Intermittently insane directions

The S90i has a lot going for it, even in the premium GPS space. We adore Navpix, love the new Navman interface and anxiously await the arrival of TMC services outside of Melbourne so that we can test them fully. At the same time, the USB charger is an...

Navman S90i


Whoever said satnavs weren't sexy was right. But the Navman S90i tries its best to change that. A good effort!

Plenty of features. It's cheap!

No FM transmitter or Pedestrian Mode.
