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)

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
