Navman launches iCN 550 GPS system

Posted on Saturday, October 01 2005 @ 06:18:47 CEST by

Navman today announced a new GPS system, the iCN 550. It's DriveAway ready with complete U.S. and Canadian map data loaded on its internal 4GB HDD and requires no additional software. The device has a 3.5-inch 320 x 240 pixels QVGA touchscreen and has an integrated flip-up GPS antenna.
Unlike competitive navigation systems that require users to dig deep into software menus to access vital information, the iCN 550 features a new intuitive button layout that puts information at the driver's fingertips. Located in the top left-hand corner of the device, dedicated Points-of- Interest (POI) buttons provide instant access to the location of nearby gas stations or parking lots -- saving time and eliminating hassle; a scroll wheel volume control is located on the right side of unit for quick adjustments to the devices ultra-powerful/crystal clear integrated speaker; and +/- map zoom keys are located in the device's upper right-hand corner.

Powered by SmartST(TM) 2005, the iCN 550 provides users with a wealth of new convenience and performance features for effective navigation, while eliminating the complexities of competitive systems. Exciting features of the new device include an improved address entry system that facilitates quick and accurate town, zip code, street, intersection and house number searches; a journey planning utility that allows users to program up to 12 stops while en route to their destination; enhanced routing algorithms that ensure users are traveling on the most intuitive course; an extensive POI database with nearest POI search; MyPOI(TM) functionality for downloading and importing third-party POI databases; and clear turn-by-turn voice instructions for reliable route guidance. User-selectable navigation screens include 3D map view, 2D map view, quick next-maneuver icon view with 2D mini-map, a text-based instruction list that displays the next four maneuvers, and new detailed junction maps that help drivers make visible associations with their actual surroundings.
The Navman iCN 550 is available in the U.S. for $699.95.
