Summary: I have had this GPS for a year +. If your looking for a unit that has MP3, Blue tooth, LCD TV, etc. this is not the one for you. It does it's job reasonably well, that is: Driving instructions, keeps you from getting too lost, and when you do, it brings you back to where you should be. On the not so good side: the interface is not very intuitive. You really need to read and digest the 73 page manual. Also the maps are out of date, and can cause some problems.
Navman iCN 530: A good, solid sat nav, that isn't perfect
2 March 2009
Summary: At first glance it is a good product. And it is for the most part. The maps are quite well labelled and it is usually fast with redirects. I do worry however about the sturdiness of the product however. Often I do have to reset the box and then go through the process of setting it up again. Other features are also good when looked at first, but then are disappointing.
Pros: Good at redirecting, solid
Cons: Bad in poor weather start ups, some features disappointing
The best GPS I have used, and yet...so near, but so far!

Summary: Overall, this is a fabulous little unit, and I have no doubt that in the four weeks I have owned it, it has justified the outlay. On the whole, the unit is intuitive in its operation. Its ability to "see" satellites is phenomenal - as another reviewer has said, it operates even inside the house sometimes.
Overall very good, but with a few major shortcomings

Summary: Overall this is a very good unit. It is good value, the screen is bright and clear even in sunny conditions, the maps are good and it comes with full postcode search and European street-level maps. There is a stylus included which stows neatly in the side of the unit. There are however two things that let the unit down.
Excerpt: Stufo di perdermi continuamente nelle grandi città ho deciso di prendermi un navigatore e recandomi in un negozio di elettronica mi venne consigliato questo Navman. Rispetto al più famoso Tom tom ha il vantaggio di avere già incluse nella cofezione le mappe dell'Europa ma a mio parere dopo quasi tre anni di utilizzo i vantaggi si esauriscono qui.Altre cose utili sono solamente il ricalcolo automatico del percorso e la possibilità attraverso due tasti ...
Pros: Mappe europa incluse
Cons: Continui blocchi del software e scarsa ricezione
Summary: Er kam leider etwas spät, deswegen konnte ich seine Führung noch nicht so ausführlich testen. Kommt nach dem Urlaub als Update. Also zunächst zur Bedienung. Das Menü ist ein bisschen gewöhnungsbedürftig. Aber mit der Anleitung am Anfang ist alles flott zu finden und mit "Stylus" (Stift) gut zu bedienen. Der Stift kann sicher im Navman verstaut werden, alternativ kann man die Infrarotfernbedienung benutzen.
Pros: Fernbedienung, suche nach Plz, schnelle Neuberechnung
