The new Navman MY series has a host of new features and enhancements that provide information to make travel better, safer and more interesting – from live traffic and weather updates as standard across three of its models, the Australian-first inclusion of Lonely Planet and WCities destination guides on GPS and the ability to search Google from your GPS.

New features

Smart Find: one of the simplest and most useful features of the new Navman MY Series is “Smart Find”, a tool that allows people to search for a destination, place or address as they would online. This means entering whatever information they have to hand – whether it’s a street name, street name plus suburb, sports field – and the Navman will serve up a list of searched options, just like a search engine.

Get free live traffic updates with SUNA Traffic: live traffic updates can make the world of difference to busy drivers in metropolitan areas, giving accurate live information about what is happening now rather than what has happened historically. SUNA Traffic comes installed in all three widescreen MY Series models so drivers will always know the best route to take, avoiding time wasting traffic delays or knowing which way is the least congested in real time, giving them a better insight to arrival times.

Exploring, Google and searching on the go: you can now use a MY50T, MY55T and MY 500XT to search Google and Truelocal via your phone’s Bluetooth connection giving the freedom of not having to plan ahead when you need to find a restaurant, a sports field, music store or anything else you may need on the go.

These online searches are in addition to the “Explore” function available on all models in the MY Series which allows you to find points of interests near your location, near your destination or anywhere along the route. For example, if you are in your car and urgently need to find a pharmacy simply click on the “Explore” function and you can instantly find the nearest pharmacy.

Making travel easier: in a first for Australian GPS devices, Navman’s MY 500XT comes loaded with detailed destination information from leading travel guides Lonely Planet and Wcities. For the other models, these guides can be purchasing and uploaded through Navman’s online store. All other Navman MY Series models have Wcities Canberra included as a sample and customers have the option of purchasing all Australian Wcities or Lonely Planet guides through Navman’s online store.
Global maps for Western Europe, Eastern Europe, New Zealand, North America and Canada are provided on a DVD in the box, so users can purchase the unlock key to regions as they need them.

Trips with multiple stops: the new range also recognises Australians don’t always travel just from A to B, but sometimes go from A to B to C, back to B before heading to D.

New screens and easy-to-use menu: the good design and style that Australians have come to associate with Navman is evident across the new range of products with a large 4.7″ screen and brushed metal casing and a more responsive (capacitive) touch screen on the top of the range MY500XT.
