Navman iCN 520


Volker Weber has posted about the Navman iCN 520. In the US, the Navman iCN 520 comes with North American maps, a 3.5 inch touch screen display, and a 12 channel GPS receiver. It sounds like Mr. Weber will be returning to his TomTom GPS, however the Navnan iCN 520 did exceed his expectations.

[The Navman iCN 520] has less features, the 3D map is too crowded and the software can be confusing … The device has a 3.5″ TFT screen which is quite bright but still hard to read in direct sunlight.

However there were a few areas where he was impressed.

But there are quite a few things that I like better on the Navman than on the TomTom. The most important improvement is the instructions. They are much clearer and more timely. It also tells you things like “drive 72 kilometers” so you will know that there won’t be any instructions soon. It will then continue to let you know at 60, 40 and 20 kilometers how far you have to procede. While TomTom will say “exit ahead”, Navman says “In 2.5 km stay right”.
