Excerpt: "To sum up in a sentance - I would buy this again. I previously had a Garmin product which worked very well, but eventuall gave up on me. This forced the purchase of a new model which must have European mapping. The S90i has that and a few other bits and so far has not sent me to any daft routes. I use the unit most weeks and have also used the traffic master service on it as well. Look & Feel The units is quite wide and the large screen is ...
Pros: Screen size, visability, ease of use, accurate routes
Excerpt: "Bought this to use in second car and have been really impressed so far. We used it on a month long holiday in Australia and it was a god send around Sydney then Sydney to Melbourne and around then finally in and around Perth and Busselton so glad we took it with us. We have also used it to drive UK to Austria and back and worked really well for that. Otherwise just normal UK usage and so far no problems. The only slight niggle I have with it is that ...
Summary: Don't bother, keeps rebooting - usually at critical times, bluetooth phone connection rareley works - even with a phone on the list, a bit slow when driving fast. the Traffic option works intermittently. Navman camera database is many months out of date. Limited number of POI.
Summary: Just purchased it last week and I'm very impressed with this unit. No trouble connecting to mounting bracket in car (people having trouble have probably not fitted the connector properly into holder). No trouble registering PIN as someone mention previously. I've not had any of the problems mentioned previously except what I have mention in CONS. Maybe these problems have been fixed? Only had minor problems with maps being wrong (not fault of GPS).
Pros: Great feature via bluetooth to my 3_Services phone to connect to Internet to get latest POI whilst out on the road. No problem syncing with my Nokia N73 phone and hands free works fine but you must have phone close to use Mic in phone (Note: there is a connector for external Mic if required). Quick response to touch screen in most cases. Great feature to add POI via the NavDesk Software supplied (eg. added all of Bunnings stores with a tool icon). Great feature to hig...
Cons: Like everyone else, I'm dissappointed I cannot turn unit on with a USB connection even when just connected to a powered hub with no connection to PC. Manual not consistant with some of the phone & bluetooth screen display icons (I must have a later version because the 2008 maps were already installed). Confused somewhat on how to turn unit on, holding down ON switch for >1secs, release and hold again 5secs later for >1sec usually turns unit on again. I wish the camera...
Summary: Great Unit as far as ease of use and functionality. I was enquiring about TMC the other day so I decided to call tech support as I was under the impression that it was available in melbourne. After a forty minute wait I got through to tech support Australia, more like India. they guy I spoke to had absolutely no idea, put me on hold several times, called me back several times, he made me delete all my favourites and recent trip history and finally instructed me to...
Pros: Great Interface
Cons: No customer service in Australia, more like India and they have absolutely no IDEA!! More like the helpless desk!
Summary: Bad customer support. Ask have you tried or that, ring back yes I've tried this and that, which did not work previously anyway and get asked yet again. They do not want to fix anything under warranty. Does not work at all when plugged into car charger, even after getting another charger- pretty useless when stuck somewhere and battery goes flat. Will NEVER waste my moneyagain on another navman product!
Pros: Okay when it works
Cons: Constantly flicks on/off when in car charger.
Summary: I have had my Navman S90i for about a year now and as a lorry driver travelling across the U.K. for various companies as an agency driver I need a good accurate sat-nav system in my work. This I have found in the S90i. It has a brilliant large widescreen display for ease of use, clear and concise TTS directions and the transition between day and night screens is smooth and discreet.
Pros: `Big clear screen, TTS excellent, good re-routing speed, excellent postcode search - even better if full address is known!
Cons: Camera (Low pixel capacity, colours started going weird shades of green then packed-up altogether so now useless!), Bluetooth issues when pairing (or trying to)(also when loading contacts after successful (RARE) pairing, touch-screen temperamental now and again and finally, occassional "FATAL ERROR - Smartstreet.exe " requiring immediate shut-down and re-start to clear.
Summary: Travelled all around Australia with this one and it rarely took me around in circles. Works well. Very happy with the product. BUT... when I had a problem with an activation key I purchased online there was absolutely no service or support forthcoming from Navman. After 3 weeks, I eventually found the solution - myself - on an online forum like this one. Turns out a lot of people had the same issue because a step was missing from the emailed installation instructions.
Pros: Works well, Navdesk software makes customising POIs and display, etc a snap. A great unit with few issues.
Cons: It's a Navman. There is NO customer service in Australia. NONE - ZIP - NADA - ZILCH. Once you've bought the product and Navman have your cash, you are on your own, kiddo. No phone numbers to call - only a webform that takes Navman at least 3 weeks to reply to (and then they usually reply with a question rather than a solution.)
Summary: unit good but!!!!!!!The absolute worst customer service in the world let alone Australia. I have emailed and phoned through no avail re TMC and a quirky battery life. Navman were supposed to organise a pick up under warranty. In the end we organised the pick up and it cost us $90.00 in telephone calls. The head office is not in Australia possibly Bangladesh or nearby.
Pros: reasonable routes and pairing with mobile phone.
