Navman icn 320 Review

 

Navman 320The Navman 320 GPS Navigation Device was Navmans stab at the budget end of the market - a Satellite Navigation System with just the basics, no frills, & a price tag to match.

The 320 comes with the unit, sd card, power and usb leads, screen mount & basic instructions. It has a nice look, with navigation buttons to the right of the screen, no touch-screen here!

Ok, lets get the unit into the car. The sucker bracket is ok, & it needs to be plugged into the cigar lighter to power up. Flip up the GPS antenna & after a couple of minutes I got a fix.

Entering destinations is partial post-code or town & road name, all done via the buttons on the right of the unit. Fiddly if you're used to touch-screen, but workable.

The Navman 320 has a small screen, but unfortunately the map of your route is even smaller. Smaller in fact than the screen on a Garmin i3. We're also only given a top down view, very basic. You can just opt for directions, which is probably better.

Voice instructions were clear & loud enough, so no complaints there, & the Navman got me to my destination with no problems.

Ok, the crunch question. Would I buy one. No. The Garmin i3 has 3d maps, larger visible screen, full post code & the options for speed cameras. The Navman feels very basic in comparison. So if you'll looking for a GPS Navigation device in this price range, go for a Garmin i3, it is so much better.
