Novogo S700 Review


PCMag has a review up of the stylish NOVOGO S700 that runs the iGo software and does a good job of getting you out there, hopefully for a good price. The iGo interface is usually customized for the GPS maker, but its basic capabilities are best known from the Mio line of products, especially the Mio C310x. The Novogo S700 is a flat form factor GPS system that has a 3.5 inch screen; standard for the industry right now. The unit ships with Maps of the US and Canada, and boasts a relatively large database of 11 million Points of Interest (POI). All of this runs off the 2GB SD card that is included. Most GPS navigation systems of this type usually cram the US and less than half that number of POI locations onto a 1GB card. The unit runs on a SiRF star III chipset and includes an internal rechargeable battery.

Overall Craig Ellison of PC Mag thought that the unit did a respectable job navigating and I like the idea that supports dynamic volume where the volume increases with speed. They used the NOVOGO S700BT which supports Bluetooth handsfree. Unfortunately, Mr. Ellison was unable to pair the GPS with his Bluetooth phone.
