New Navman GPS: iCN530
Navman launched a mid-tier GPS receiver today, the new iCN530, positioning it as a sleek portable GPS receiver. Sleek and pocket-sized, the new iCN530 is less than an inch thick and weighs less than 7 ounces, making the iCN530 one of the lightest and most portable navigation models ever. The iCN530 also features an integrated SiRF Star III GPS antenna and a non-reflective 3.5 QVGA LCD touch-screen.
The iCN530 is packed with some decent features: extended voice guidance which now includes junction and road numbers; clearer map display and color choice; additional 3D next-turn map arrows; and detailed trip-meter report. Furthermore, the iCN530 offers unique one-touch gas and park buttons to help you out in a jam.
Traffic Receiver on the Navman iCN 530
A new and simplified car mount design also allows quickrelease and safe storage of the iCN530. To escape traffic, the iCN530 also offers subscription-free, live traffic information via an optional traffic pack first launched by Navman in 2005. This is available as an add-on.
The innovative traffic pack makes the iCN530 the definitive driving companion. Attach the pack and the iCN530 receives live TMC traffic updates. Updates are then displayed as icons on the map to provide all the information you need for the road ahead. You can therefore easily plan your trip, while also choosing between automatic or manual re-routing to avoid congested areas.
The iCN530 comes equipped with the second generation SiRF Star III. It pinpoints your location even faster and improves reception in environments where there is a weak signal, such as areas surrounded by high buildings or dense foliage. They have also added features that help with navigation with turn by turn voice instructions.
The unit is available in the UK and UK and Ireland maps packed with the latest TeleAtlas data are standard on the iCN 530, while the supplied CD provides additional street-level maps for 17 European countries. Advanced map imagery gives a superb impression of surroundings on screen, including land contours, parks and forests and a choice of full 3D moving maps, plus a 2D mini-map screen and route summary.
Also included with the iCN530 are a sleek lightweight remote control, car charger and main power adaptor. Available in the UK starting in April 2006 from leading retailers and e-tailers, the iCN530 will retail for £299 Inc VAT. The traffic pack is available separately for approximately £100 Inc VAT.
