Summary: I brought my Navman PiN 570 GPS Receiver because I wanted a PDA and GPS to get me where I need to be. The PDA helps me stay on track of appointments,to do list, and in spare time listen to the MP3 player while studing for a exam. The GPS side provided me direction to and from places I visit with family and friends.
Summary: I like the Navman, for the price, and the features you get. I did find, like the other writer did, that it can take some time to acquire the GPS signal, sometimes. Usually, when it does have a delay, it's like 2 to three minutes. I've never experienced anything close to an hour. It can be somewhat cumbersome to enter addresses, but, overall, I think it's a great little gadget. Also, to the writer who stated that the pegs are in the wrong place on the cradle for the unit?
Summary: Pros: - It was the cheapest PocketPC with GPS in the market when I bought it a year ago. Cons: - no built-in Wi-Fi. Need to buy a SDIO Wi-Fi card for internet access. - the GPS signal reception is very poor. - The navigation software Navman SmartST doesn't have TTS (Text-To-Speech). For example, it only announces "turn right in 0.1 mile" rather than "turn right on Main Street in 0.1 mile." I would recommend a GPS with SIRF star III chip for much better signal reception.
Summary: Inexpensive PDA with a bonus - a NAV system. One big inconvenience: The PDA (yup, Windows based) crashes every time the calendar pops up a reminder for an appointment. Tech supports response: re-boot. Also, the maps are not the most accurate to the street address level. There are several occasions where the NAV system could leave me a block or two from the true destination. We're talking major city & suburbs, here, not rural. Lastly, the addresses are clumsy to input.
Summary: I bought my first Navman PiN 570 more than a year ago, the second one for my wife few weeks ago. It's compact and easy to use. You can download tons of useful information from the Internet: dictionaries, e-books and much much more. Downsides: processor has limited power, it handles maximum 512MB memory card. I tried first 1 Gig, it worked, but would freeze frequently if was used as a GPS. With 512MB this problem was eliminated almost completely.
Summary: I liked Navman pocket PC with GPS. It is simple to use and has enough features for those looking for a pocket pc to store email, contacts and some files. Also good companion while on Road (I named this gadget with my wife name - showing directions while moving) 2 bad things about this product; 1. Maps are old, not sure how to get latest maps. 2. I am still not able to connect to my wireless router (comcast broadband) for internet access.
Summary: I love this thing. OK - my wife hates that I love it but she doesn't want to give me directions half the time anyway. So she argues with the way it routes sometimes - which can be amusing. It was an excellent deal for the money at around $200 discounted. The only feature it is lacking is WiFi which I bought an SDIO card from e-bay for.
