Free Monthly Updates With Navman
Navman has updated a huge number of road features over the past 12 months, and now it has decided to do so monthly – for free – in its new MY Series MY450LMT.
- Available with new MY series
- Free lifetime maps
- Several updates, too
Drives can update on an automatic basis with Rapid Map Refresh. Monthly updates are made to new roads, junctions, safety alerts including speed cameras, school zones and red light cameras, as well as new points of interests such as sporting venues, hospitals and airports. There are also updates on new roads under construction.
It will also include free lifetime maps, (updated every quarter) on its new MY400LMT and EZY250LM sat navs. The EZY250LM model incorporates the best of both GPS worlds – it is as easy to use as an entry level model, but also boasts advanced features usually only seen on top end devices.
Navman has also updated several other features on the new MY Series range such as incorporating distance parameters on its Landmark Guidance Plus feature that gives directions in a natural way by providing names, brands and colours of buildings as well as geographical features in a driver’s surroundings. This helps drivers easily understand where they need to turn. For example “in 200 metres turn left into Burns Bay Road at the petrol station.” The feature even takes into consideration the visibility of objects, direction of travel and seasonal changes.
The new Café Short Cut Button on the MY Series main menu also allows motorists to satisfy their caffeine cravings. While a Fuel Type Search will locate the most relevant petrol station for the type of fuel you need eg diesel petrol or LPG via keyword search.
Voice Destination Entry has been updated, too, making the function quicker and easier to use. The one shot address and intersection entry allows people to say a full-address in one go, rather than having to go through multiple menu screens. Drivers can now also search by area for example “Blue Mountains” or keywords such as the “Sydney Opera House.” This is especially useful when there isn’t an address handy.
An Auto Start/Auto Off function means the clever device will also switch off when the power source is interrupted, such as when the car ignition is turned off or the device is unplugged from a computer or power adapter.
