In Pictures: Navman S-Series Platinum

Navman Australia this week announced a completely new range of GPS navigation units, the S-Series Platinum

  • The S-Series Platinum offers a comprehensive package of safety warnings — safety and speed cameras, accident black spots, railway crossings and school zones.

  • The units feature more than 100 3-D landmarks including the Sydney Opera House, MCG and Suncorp Stadium.

  • The S-Series Platinum range will be available in late October. The range consists of the S100 ($429), S150 ($499), S200 ($599) and flagship S300t ($699). The S300t includes the SUNA Traffic Channel service out of the box; it is available as an optional extra on the rest of the range.

  • Lane guidance covering major Australian cities, including Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Canberra, is also a feature.

  • Navman Australia this week announced a completely new range of GPS navigation units, the S-Series Platinum. The S-Series Platinum consists of four models, ranging from the entry-level S100 to the flagship S300t. The units feature an intelligent search function that finds destinations by keywords.

  • The address search method has also been improved. It enables users to search intuitively, negating the need to search backwards like most other units.

  • The S-Series range also includes a petrol efficiency mode. This attempts to avoid stop-start driving and braking, while trying to keep speeds constant in order to reduce petrol consumption.

  • Navman has partnered with NAVTEQ to provide the Australian maps on the S-Series Platinum. The maps cover 1.1 million kilometres of roads, covering 100 per cent of the population.
