Navman Australia today announced the launch of a completely new range of GPS units, the S-Series Platinum. Building on the success of the original S-Series, the new units feature brushed metal casing, a scrollable “glide” touch screen, a completely new user interface and an intelligent search function. A heavy emphasis has been placed on design, with the new units being just 13.5mm thick.

“Navman invests heavily in research and development to create GPS units that are continually two steps ahead of the market”, said Wendy Hammond, marking director at Navman Australia. “It’s about making it easier for people to find where they want to go, to help them get there safely and then enable them to explore more about their destination.”

In addition to a completely redesigned user interface, the units in the S-Series Platinum range are some of the first in Australia to feature 3-D lane guidance, with junction views appearing on the screen as users approach major turn-offs or intersections.

There is also a comprehensive range of safety features including school zones, red light cameras, speed cameras and accident black spots. In addition, the address input process has been simplified by using keywords, negating the need to always enter a full address.

There are four models in the S-Series Platinum range, from the entry-level S100, to the top of the line S300t, which supports the SUNA Traffic Channel out of the box.

In addition to the new S-Series Platinum, Navman has also retained and enhanced two models in its classic S-Series range, the S35 and S45.

The full list of new Navman models, available from late October 2008 onwards, is as follows:

  • S100 ($429)
  • S150 ($499)
  • S200 ($599)
  • S399t ($699)
  • S35 ($299)
  • S45 ($349)

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
