Navman launches S-Series

Navman has launched an entire new range of GPS units

Navman has launched an entire new range of GPS units, dubbed the S-Series. Focused heavily on a stylish and intelligent design, the new units boast a number of new features, including a totally redesigned interface and the latest 2007 R14 Sensis maps.

The four models in the S-Series range -- the S30, S50, S80 and S90i -- have been designed to make it easier for first time users.

Among the new features is a stylish and lightweight exterior, a bright and clear interface and large displays. Exclusive to Navman is a speaking keyboard, expense reporter and a space-saving foldable cradle.

All four units provide speed and red light camera warnings, as well as directional alerts when motorists are within 10 per cent of the speed limit, while spoken voice directions give specific road names when approaching a turn.

'We've gone beyond navigation as a way of getting from A to B and invested in truly understanding how people want to use these products. This market is now main stream and as such, we have to recognise the varying degrees of consumer wants and needs -- whether that's a first time buyer or an experienced user," says Marcus Fry, Navman director of Sales & Marketing Australasia.

"We aren't simply adding extra features to our devices just because we can -- we have evolved and reworked our product range in line with what we know consumers want. That being, less clutter and richer content, delivered in a reliable, easy to use and intelligently designed package."

The S-Series starts at a competitive $399 for the base model S30, and ranges to $799 for the fully equipped S90i, featuring a 2-megapixel camera for NavPix -- a feature allowing you to navigate to geotagged images.

Navman S-Series: Navman S90i ($799), Navman S80 ($699), Navman S50 ($499), Navman S30 ($399)

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
