Summary: I have had this little unit for two years and think its pretty darn good for its size and money. Its directed me to Yellowstone park from Bozeman airport with no problem. Its directed my girlfriend back from a camping trip with no problem..Its a neat little unit that works very well..I like it alot and im glad I bought it. I seldom use it but its nice to know i have it and it works.
Conclusion: The iCN 510 really is a good product. Why do I like this so much ? Well if you compare it to the nearest competitor which is TomTom GO, then it's a much slimmer product, fits in your shirt pocket and is pleasant to use. TomTom GO likewise is a great product but it's a little over-sized with it's built-in sensors, and you are sort of left wondering where to put it when you leave your car for a walk around town. Not with the iCN 510!
Summary: This is a great product. A good friend of mine recommended it to me and since I was in need of a good, reliable out-of-box nav system for my car, I decided to purchase it. Pros: - At about 1" thick, it's the most sleek in-car navigation system on the market. - Acccurate, real-time (no lag) navigation with voice prompts. - Can't beat the price.
Summary: I initially reviewed this item after purchasing it and was very impressed with it. However, after a month of use I am giving this 2 stars, mainly for the great display. Software issues make this GPS useless, please read my updated post below: 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.
Summary: Got this at another merchant for under $350.00. Work's fantastic so far in the San francisco Bay area. Maps appear reasonably accurate and GPS positioning and instructions are precise so far. For the money, it can't be beat. Screen is bright, and touchscreen is easy to use.
Summary: I was able to get this product for $349 at Fry's. This included a free 256MB SD Card. The product works fairly well. It is well constructed and very portable. Nav software is very responsive, voice prompt sometimes off but instructions on screen were always correct. Installation was smooth and without incident. After applying recent software update most or all issues are resolved. You can pay more an get more, but for the price it is the best thing out there.
Summary: This is my 3rd GPS unit. I have previously owned Garmin products and this NAVMAN takes the prize! Not only is it portable so I can use it in any of my vehicles, but I can actually use waypoints. This is a great feature because not only can I use this product for road navigation, but I can use it for all of my outdoor activities like hiking, fishing and geocaching/orienteering!
Summary: Hi, I bought a Navman ICN 510 from someone. It's very silly of me but I took it home and I can't get it to work. I only bought it as I'm going to be a dad for the first time really soon and I need it to take my new baby to see family around Scotland. The unit powers up ok but the maps don't work. If i take the card out it shows "Reloading Maps" but I can't search for any addresses or anything. Do I need the cd with or or software for the computer to make it work?
Excerpt: "...upgrades are available from the Navman website - excellent! To find a destination, the postcode entry screen takes a little time to load but then you can quickly and easily find your destination through several menus. It calculates routes extremely quickly and options such as motorway route, speed/distance options mean multiple routes can be found the Navman voice isn't too annoying. if you take a wrong turn or choose to go a different way ...
Excerpt: "Navman ICN 510 a great piece of kit in your car or on whilst on foot. No installation required, ready to use straight out of the box. Pop the memory card into the side of your GPS flip with the satellite receiver pointing up to the sky and away you go. The memory card has all the UK roads and some other European country's major roads installed, although any new roads that have just been built might not appear on the map. I found this out when driving ...
