The four models in the S-Series range - the S30, S50, S70 and S90i - have been designed to accommodate both first time users looking for the basics and experienced GPS buyers looking for more features.
Navman claims the flagship S90i is now 20% slimmer than any other product in its class. A re-designed user interface and 4.3" widescreen offers clear map display and menu navigation.
Having enhanced favourites such as Points of Interest search and integrated real-time traffic, Navman has also included an SOS button and a space-saving foldable cradle.
With an array of additional innovative features, the new S-Series features a brand new interface. The most up-to-date 2007 map data comes as standard, and there's a new anti-glare widescreen display. Navman has also added a PIN code lock to the new range - the four-digit PIN required by the S50, S70 and S90i models gives added security, so nobody else will be able to operate your GPS system without authorisation.
Safety camera information provides directional alerts when motorists are within 10% of the speed limit and spoken voice directions give specific road names when approaching a turning. Other features such as the auto dimming screen, which automatically switches from day to night mode as evening falls, and a quick drop down menu showing the extra information you want only when you need it.
Navman has even added a Speaking Keyboard that speaks each letter and number as you type, meaning that inputting postcodes and addresses is more accurate.
Meanwhile, Navman's innovative NavPix technology allows you to navigate to pictures, as well as creating your own NavPix destinations and sharing them around the world. And now, for the first time, an online image search powered by Flickr gives you access to 23 million geo-tagged images - simply download onto your Navman device, and navigate straight there with one touch.
In addition, Navman has integrated Bluetooth and a dedicated SOS button, providing you with a list of emergency services - from hospitals to garages, dentists to police stations - in the area should you need assistance of any kind. All you need to do is select the service required, and the S-Series can instantly dial the number or navigate you to the location.
To make sure you're kept informed of everything along your route, an integrated TMC Traffic receiver supplies real-time information without the need for add-ons or extra subscription charges. This data now covers 14 countries, twice as many as before, while the 'Traffic Overview' display allows you to view all traffic incidents on your planned route. If there's anything in your way, a simple one-touch detour button will redirect you around any problems along the way.
