Decent PDA/GPS For a very decent price

R. Hendricks, Amazon
21 November 2007
  • 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?

buy a GPS with SIRF star III chip

New Yorker "NewYorker", Amazon
27 September 2007
  • 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.

It is Ok for that price

Ada, Amazon
9 January 2007
  • Summary: It is not bad, but needs some improvements. Good things about it are 3D display and price. Using 3D you can see the road ahead in advance. It is very useful when you drive in the dark. It is slow to get signal whenever it starts. Also It is not as accurate as other GPS. When I enter some address numbers it cannot recognize them and set the destination to the city. Another wish item is the cable used to charge and to communicate with a computer.

Navman PiN 570 - You Get What You Pay For!!

K. Lue "Kent", Amazon
12 November 2006
  • Summary: I've just bought this unit this past week and this is what I've noticed: 1) The price is very reasonable for a pocket navigation system with a built in PDA. 2) Very easy to transfer maps or synchronize with ActivSync. 3) It's very easy to learn, but the process of entering locations is very cumbersome. 4) The maps are very outdated. For example, I entered my sister's house, which is in a major city and was built 30 years ago and the Navman maps cannot find it.

Adequate -but could have been great

Gregory R. Todd "Viper 172", Amazon
23 June 2006
  • Summary: I bought my PiN 570 in London before starting a 6 week trip around the UK. Being a Kiwi, I thought I'd support the Kiwi product. Out of the box, the unit is well constructed, and has enough weight not to feel like a toy. The interface is a little cluttered, but the unit is a PDA rather than just a personal SATNAV, so you have to expect a little bit of on-screen infrastructure to handle the units other functions.

Still working

M. M. D. Fonseka, Amazon
22 August 2007
  • Summary: I have had the PiN since January 2006 - and use it mainly as a PDA. As a GPS it can freeze quite often - especially when you most need it! Still it is working perfectly well.

Out of date Maps

"lab440", Amazon
28 February 2006
  • Summary: Good product, agree with the previous review about the manuals but my greatest irk with it is out of date maps, one address I was after was built 3 years ago and has been available on the RAC Routfinder since Dec 03 yet it doesn't exist on the Navman
