Expert Review


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 review


Navman has had its S-series in the development studio for some time: can it make TomTom shift uneasily in its cradle?

Smart, clever and capable. A couple of imperfections keep it off the top spot, and we might be tempted by the camera-less S70, but it's a fine choice

Navman S90i GPS receiver


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 unique selling point of the S90i is the camera function and the new addition of all those Flickr photos, however take that out of the equation and you've got a unit that is a solid performer but by no means breaks any boundaries. Following on from...

Navman S90i GPS receiver - First Look


Navman has officially launched its new S-series, following a "dramatic redesign" of the company's satellite navigation systems. But is it for the better? We were able to have a brief play with the new models at the launch event in London. Losing all...

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

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 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...

You can view the mapping in either 2D or 3D and there are plenty of points of interest programmed in, should you want to take the scenic route or are looking for something in particular. The S90i comes with 2GB of expandable flash memory to which you...
