The last time we saw the guys from Navman was at the Wales GPS meet just before they released the iCN 520. This time we met at The Vinyl Factory in Soho. In fact it was in the basement garage that the meeting took place. A strange location for a GPS presentation...
Yesterday I went with Tim Buxton and our newest moderator Sergei (aka Eldar). I was the lucky one who was picked up in a Mercedes limo froom the train station and chauffeured to the underground garage.
Whilst in the limo I was given a working demo of the latest Navman release the iCN320. This is a budget SatNav system designed for the complete beginner. It is a plug and go device, that does not need any other system to run. This means that you dont need a PC.
The New Releases
There were 3 devices launched today: the iCN 320, the iCN 550 and the Pin570.
We reported on the Pin570 some time ago and it has been available for purchase for some time now. The iCN320 and iCN550 details were leaked on French web sites last week.
We had a hands on presentation of each of these devices cumulating in a demonstration drive around the Urban Canyons (and the frantic driving) of the streets of the west End of london.
Navman provided us with press releases which you can read at the end of this article. We also came away with a review sample of the iCN320 and the promise of an iCN550 when they become available next month. Full reviews of each system will follow shortly, in the meantime here is a short taster
