Panasonic CN-GP50U Strada Portable Navigation System

 

The Strada's 5-inch screen impresses, but the unit's performance disappoints.

Text-to-speech. Includes maps for U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico, and Mexico. Multisegment routing.

Small POI database. Sluggish performance. Awkward destination/POI input. No video input. Data fields in map view are small and difficult to read.

As with all 5-inch GPSs, you pay a premium for a slightly larger screen. Models with 4.3-inch screens offer more features and better performance for less money.

Panasonic Strada CN-GP50U

 

A stylish GPS navigator with some useful hands-free features.

Street pronunciation ; Well-designed map interface ; Bluetooth for hands-free calling ; Voice commands

Small POI database with poor interface ; Slow route calculation ; Photos require a separate SD Card

Like the ASUS R700t and the Nokia 500, navigation seems to be the easy part for companies that don’t focus exclusively on GPS, while creating a usable POI system is more difficult. If you don't mind a smaller 4.3-inch screen, the TomTom Go 930 offers...

Panasonic Strada CN-GP50 Review

 

Panasonic's CN-GP50 Strada is a 5" Widescreen GPS that boasts GPS Assist, Bluetooth Hands-Free Calling, and support for optional traffic services. Given the CN-GP50's relatively hefty $500 suggested retail price, the feature set is lacking, and...

Panasonic Strada CN-GP50N Sat-Nav

 

Bigger can only mean better when talking sat-nav screen size.

I criticised it then for being a bit fiddly, with a small, difficult-to-read next turn icon and distance indication, and for having a slightly washed-out colour scheme. But with the large and bright 5in screen these weaknesses all but disappear.

Review of Panasonic Strada CN-GP50N satnav

 

The clear main map zooms into a junction when nearing it. Once way streets are shown with an arrow. The touch screen is a little slow to respond but it is easy to program. Windscreen cradle is hard to attach and bulky to carry. Road numbers are given...

THIS IVE FOUND TO BE A VERY RESONABLE ALL ROUND PRODUCT

 

PRECISE INSTUCTIONS, LANE GUIDANCE, IT HAS VOICE COMANDS FOR DESTINATIONS,AND A USER FRIENDLY TOUCH SCREEN

THEY HAVE STOPPED SELLING THIS PRODUCT IN THE U.K. THE DASH MOUNT COULD BE A BIT STURDIER,AND WISH THE PRODUCT SUPPORT WAS A LITTLE BETTER,I.E. MORE ROAD MAPS FOR OUT SIDE EUROPE

Consumer review by:

Not a good deal :(

 

As compare to Garmin...it stands no where

Happy wid display only

Not at all user friendly

Product Specifications

The Strada Portable Navigation System boasts a generously large 5" widescreen LCD monitor in a slim 5.08" wide by 3.42" high by 1.22" deep body, making it extremely compact and easy to carry. Take it with you to deter theft, but also so you can show off your digital photos. The large, easy-to-use touch-panel screen is great for sharing slide shows, with a choice of five time settings. You can even set the initial screen image to your favorite snapshot using the Picture Viewer function. Strada's simple and intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) uses contrasting colors and textures for extra clarity, with a minimal number of large, easy-to-use buttons so you can concentrate on driving. Choose from a selection of keyboard layouts to suit your preference (ABCD, QWERTY, AZERTY), with symbol and numeric input capability. Keep both hands on the wheel while setting your destination with Strada's Voice Command function, which learns to recognize your vocal characteristics for enhanced accuracy, regardless of language or dialect. GPS Assist provides positioning compensation in case of poor GPS reception. An electronic compass helps make sure Strada tells you the right way to go when exiting a multi-level parking garage, and the Smart Assist function smoothly adjusts the position based on map data when the GPS signal is interrupted, as when driving through a tunnel. Plan your route in the comfort of your home or hotel without receiving GPS signals. Preview distances and travel times, even simulate the drive on-screen. With map coverage of the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico, including detailed city maps and a vast Point of Interest (POI) database, you can go almost anywhere across town or across the border. With Strada, map updates are easy: Simply transfer new map data via SD card or direct USB cable connection. For rapid search and display, you can save your favorite destinations, like your home address, or choose from the "Last Destination" list of your 30 most recent trips. Strada's secure window or dash suction mounting bracket features "quick click" fixing buttons for fast and easy mounting and removal of your portable navigation system.
