A must have Navigation device for 2011 and in the future.
9 December 2011
Summary: This is the Navigation of all mobile navigations. It has a wide navigation screen, loud turn-by-turn instructions for when you have your music blasting. It's from Navman, the top of the line mobile navigation maker. Price should be no problem for this device if you want the best. It may be expensive but it is worth it. I love mine and it is incredible. Automatic re-routing and lots of extra additional goodies are included on this device.
Summary: There is not much that has not already been said. The Navman ICN 630 has lasted me 5 years now and it's just been great. Well built and extremely reliable. When it was introduced it was the best portable GPS on the market. Very fast processor. The map and software updates I've purchased (the first one was free!) has kept it fresh. The only negative is that I wish there were more POIs. UPDATE: It's amazing how fast GPS technology has advanced.
Summary: I have used a factory installed navigation system in my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee for a year; and have found the Navman icn 630 I purchased for my other vehicles to be less confusing and faster to re-route; I surmise it is because the Navman does not have a hard drive as in the Jeep. Also, the Navman map is less confusing to follow because of the 3D feature that automatically displays when approaching a turn.
Summary: This is the first in car navigation I have purchased. I used handheld units (back in the "old" days) that required putting in waypoints. These were great for fishing and other outdoors things, but not so hot for riding around in your car. We have been really pleased with this product. Since we have relatively new cars but with no navigation, these are great for us. (We purchased 2 as my spouse and I both travel for work).
Better than the more expensive Magellan RoadMate 700

Summary: I like to start reviews with some background on myself, because I think it helps readers better evaluate my ratings. With that said... I am no pilot, sailor or mountaineer, but I have been using GPS gear since about 1999, when I got a Garmin GPS III simply because I was a gadget lover. At that time, the GPS III was about $400, which was as much as I was willing to spend on what was admittedly a toy.
Summary: I got the Navman iCN 630 after trying the Delphi Mobile Navigation system, as these units are based on the same hardware and similar (but not identical) software. The screen is sharp and easy to read, while the voice instructions are loud enough to be heard in a car traveling at highway speeds with the radio on.
Summary: This is my first GPS and I love it. It does exactly what I wanted and even if I miss the turning it very quickly corrects the route. The voice is very clear and if you happen to be talking it reminds you when you reach the turning. The screen is very easy to read. The information I received from my initial enquiries to Navman were answered immediately. I had one query after purchase and that again was answered straight away.
Summary: For $700 bucks don't expect AI military precision and functionality. This product does as advertised and I am generally happy with it. I took it down to Los Angeles and San Diego and I was able to get around without a bunch of maps as I normally do when traveling. After a couple of days in LA I thought I knew where I was going, I got lost one night and it was pitch dark on some expressway at 1am.
Summary: After doing a lot of research I settled to buy this unit. The ... rebate was attractive as well. Unfortunately I had to return it. Pros: 1. Excellent screen and easy to use. 2. Route recalculation is fast. 3. Mounting bracket included along with a carry case. 4. Uses non-proprietary CF cards, limited to 256MB CF usable card data although you can use larger capacity card for storage Cons: 1. Limited memory, 64MB built in + 256MB CF card. 2. No data for Canada yet. 3.
Summary: Where do I start? Firstly I have used many GPS systems in cars and I noticed that they never tried to get me do illegal things like making a right hand turn at a No Right Turn sign or telling me to make a U turn..Navman does! It gives you an estimate of how long a trip between A & B will take...it told me 9 minutes for a 15 mile journey along a normal major suburban road which would take me no less than 30 mins at best.
