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.
Summary: I had used PiN 100 for about a year, then accidentally broke it, so bought a PiN 570. After about 10 days' use, here's a comparison between PiN 570 and PiN 100. 1. GPS functionality. PiN 100 worked smoothly right out of box in this respect. But PiN 570 had been giving me quite some headache for about a week until I finally grasped all the tricks after doing a lot of research online and conducting experiments myself.
Summary: I purchased this Navman with a 2gb SD stick and it works great, which i have tons of maps and music loaded. Download sompy's and pocketdivx encoder and you can encode a whole divx movie with excellent quality at only 300MB of space. The navigation is great once you get used to it. My only complaint is the suction cup window mount keep falling. This is a overall steal if you utilize all the features. *update* You can also load Iguidance on it which uses Navteq maps.
Summary: This is a decent GPS device and a fine Pocket PC. I'd give it 3.5 stars if possible. Pros: 1) It's a perfectly decent Pocket PC. I've owned several, and this is no worse than any of them except for CPU speed and RAM. It's perfectly OK and actually pretty decent looking. Its lights (charging, charged, etc.) keep you well informed. 2) The GPS functions work pretty well. The software for the PC is quite good.
Summary: I recently bought this item. The GPS functions are great but take a little getting used to. Your can plan a trip and the PIN 570 will tell you where to turn and quite cleaverly if you decide to take a different rout it will re compute the rest of the journey after warning that you have deviated from planned rout. It can be set to avoid toll roads and for varous ather settings.
Summary: First off you get a decent GPS rolled into a reasonable Pocket PC PDA. So if you use Exchange email at work you can sync it up to that and get extra functionality. Ok, you have a nice big screen, pretty good GPS software, clear audio and works very well. The post code entry is the only downside to this great sat nav. You need to enter a road name as well as the post code as it doesnt take the full post code.
Excerpt: "I bought the Navman PiN 570 after looking for an all-round PDA that has satellite navigation. Most of the ones I found were phones that had PDA functions. Although they seemed nice they were very expensive and most required a phone contract – so no thanks. Eventually I settled for the PiN 570. After doing some on-line research I found some good reviews. It was no longer being manufactured, though it was being supported by Navman – more importantly, ...
