Not as good as I thought

Wei, Amazon
13 August 2006
  • Summary: I have owned this GPS for 2 month. This GPS takes very long time to load and transfer maps from a CD. One hour to transfer 250 MB. total 2 GB of map data for North America. Map are outdated. Sometimes the voice instruction are confusing. The map on the screen showing that you should turn right, but the voice will tell you "keep left". I got into the wrong lane and missed the turn because of that. The routing calculation algorithm is not smart.

Returned item after one week!

M. Lu "Lu", Amazon
5 August 2006
  • Summary: After reading many glowing reviews of this product, I decided to take the plunge and order one. One week later it was repackaged in the box and shipped back. The unit has some nice features including quick route calculations, many POI's, and a nice touch pad. However the time it took to acquire a sat signal makes this thiing pretty much useless.

Navman iCN520 GPS is no good

R. RAMIREZ "all-around IT dude", Amazon
8 July 2006
  • Summary: This device is a piece of trash. Don't waste your money buying it. The address database for the USA 2005 maps that were bundled on the enclosed CDs is missing a lot of addresses. I tried looking up my street address so that I could get directions from a friend's house to my place and my address was not included in the database! Anything made by Garmin, the CS32X series is way better than this sorry excuse for a GPS.

Navman iC520 come perdere la pazienza

Quentin120, Ciao
31 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Mio padre ha acquistato questo prodotto di seconda mano, e in queste settimane ho avuto necessità e modo anch'io di testarlo. Intuitivo e facile nell'impostare la destinazione, pecca a mio avviso di un unico grande difetto, l'estrema lentezza con cui prende il segnale GPS. Si parla di 4-5 minuti se si resta fermi, che diventano anche 20-30 o di più nel caso come me di auto con vetri schermati (mi hanno infatti detto che le case francesi adottano questa ...
  • Pros: Piccolo, esteticamente carino e funzionale
  • Cons: Connessione GPS spesso lentissima

Un navi bello ma poco usabile

caramon77, Ciao
12 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Navigatore basato si Windows CE Embedded, con slot per scheda SD (ho provato fino a 2Gb e funzionano), design molto piacevole e professionale e con la giusta selezione di tasti. Lo schermo e touch con pennino in dotazione (che sparisce nel corpo del navi). E' piacevole ma pecca di luminosità. Di giorno, con luce solare anche solo media, non si vede nulla e diventa fastidioso da utilizzare. Suppongo che lo si possa dotare di telecomando perchè ...
  • Pros: design, robustezza, precisione
  • Cons: luminosità assolutamente insufficiente, lento a prendere il segnale

Pagando novatada navegadores

Ciao
16 March 2007
  • Excerpt: Resulta que los navegadores GPS no son aparatos electronicos, sino informaticos.Es decir admiten programacion aunque no precisamente por el usuario. Despues de encontrarme con que el iCN 520 tarda hasta 15 minutos en coger la señal, con lo que hay veces en ciudad que ya he llegado a donde pretendia antes de que me guie, empece a buscar por internet para solucionar problemas y me di cuenta que como con Windows los usuarios hemos admitido el fallo y el error como...
  • Pros: solidez y presentacion del aparato - Hardware
  • Cons: sistema operativo y funcionalidades

Problèmes iCN520 France

gej78, Ciao
16 December 2005
  • Summary: J'ai acheté un iCN520, dans le but d'épargner quelques points de permis... il marche mais il a de nombreuses lacunes, et est loin d'égaler la qualité du TomTom ... bug du logiciel ne permettant pas de sélectionner les points d'intérets que l'on souhaite visualiser. Ils sont tous présents, ce qui surcharge l'affichage. fonctionnement erratique en mode autonome (batterie), dès que la batterie descend au dessous de 66%.
  • Pros: minceur, accessoires, chargement fichiers
  • Cons: cartographie incomplète, bugs
