Summary: I bought this GPS almost 2.5 years ago. Im not specially happy with it. It does not have or find many, many POI's and addresses. Sometimes does not have even things that they've been in there forever and are really important. Sometimes it takes to the wrong way too. I wouldnt it recomend it.
Summary: Purchased one of these nice looking units after spending weeks researching GPS car units. Units powers up and loads fairly quickly. Acquires sats. plenty fast. But, you can only load a certain number of states into the unit at any one time. Why would anybody want a unit that constantly requires loading and dumping of maps. At the time I purchased mine a 512 MB card was the largest SD card the 510 would support. Hopefully that is something Navman has figured out since.
Summary: I bought this several months ago after using the Hertz navigation in a rental. I know the Magellan is based on that unit, but I decided to give the Navman a try for the price. At first I was very happy with the unit. It was small and compact, came with good accessories (like a window mount), and the maps were fairly easy to download to the unit. Navigation was pretty good, and the bright, clear screen was and still is the best feature of this GPS.
Summary: I have owned an ICN 510 since last November and while the Navman has helped me find my way, I have been disappointed overall with the performance of the product. There are a number of problems that are frustrating and I would like to see rectified in future versions of Navman's software. They are listed below. Route Selection: Even when set to quickest route and preference to urban roads at max, the Navman often takes me through small local roads with many stop signs.
Summary: I have a Garmin GPS V and the iCN 510. As comparing to the Garmin GPS V that I have, I found the followings on the iCN510: Pros: 1. Sleek, light weight design. 2. Touch creen with color is awesome. 3. Great price ( I got it for $300 from Outpost). Cons: Despite the above statements, the search function of this high-tech design equipment is very very BAD as comparing to that of the traditional-looking GPS V. Please read the following scenarios: 1.
Summary: I originally purchased the Navman 3450 add-on for my PDA, and it crashed continuously, so I ended up returning it. However, I desperately wanted a GPS because I got used to using on in a Jeep Grand Cherokee and take road trips often. So, I bought this unit through Outpost for $349. (thanks previous reviewer!) Amazon is almost always cheaper, but not on this... So, the hardware is well designed.
Good GPS Device for the price - but maps are outdated!

Summary: I purchased this NAVMAN icn510 at a different online retailer for $350 (starts with outpost. something :-). I generally make my purchases at Amazon.com - but this time Amazon.com could not beat the price I got for this gadget. I also usually rely on Amazon.com to read reviews of a product. Since I have been helped by other peoples reviews before, I thought it is my time to pay back. Hence I am writing this one. This is my first ever review.
Overall nice but Software needs some reworking for bugs.
Mr GPS, Amazon

Summary: After reading several reviews of the Euro version, I decided to purchase the US version when it came out. Compared it against the similar featured: Garmin Quest (smaller screen), Magellan Roadmate 300 (no battery), and the Tom Tom Go (more expensive). Have found the satellite acquistion is excellent and the displayed map good. Mine has a minor hardware glitch in that the volume wheel does not work.
