Product information and further reviews for Satellite Navigation Systems

Traffic and weather sensitive sat-nav Focus Online 3/2011 - The TomTom Go Live 1005 navigation system knows what’s going on around its owner. It knows the weather report and the current traffic conditions as well as the possible location of speed cameras.

TomTom Go Live 825 PC Pro 7/2011 - By offering something over and above the norm TomTom have secured their own place in the market. Now they release the Go Live 825 as a replacement for the Via Live 120.

Sat nav test: Navigon 70 Premium katzeausdemsack.de 2/2011 - At Christmas I became the proud owner of a new navigation system of the Navigon 70 Premium variety. As you know, I’ve long been praising the virtues of the latest sat navs which can now be operated using voice commands allowing you to avoid all that annoying screen tapping whilst driving. It seems Santa was listening and on Christmas morning I awoke to find none other than the Navigon 70 Premium lying under the Christmas tree. ...

Test: the TomTom Via LIVE 120 Europe Navigation-Professionell.de 2/2011 - The TomTom Via 120 Traffic, that was rated ‘very good’ by Navigation-Professionell.de, incorporates classic TMC traffic information into its route planning. Now the TomTom Via LIVE 120 goes one step better. The LIVE 120 includes real-time services such as TomTom’s own traffic information service HD Traffic. TomTom markets HD Traffic as ‘the best traffic information service ever’ (source: TomTom).

Radar Speed Camera and Speed Warnings ETM TESTMAGAZIN 6/2009 - ’All Paths lead to Rome.’ This was not the case in our benchmark test - here the question was rather: Should it be the shortest, the fastest, the most economical or even the prettiest path to Rome? We tested seven new sat-navs of the price class of 260 to 520 Euros. Apart from one exception, all devices performed exceptionally well, but there were also obvious weaknesses. Review details: Seven navigation systems were tested. They were rated 4 x “very good” and 3 x “good”. Among the test criteria were operation (touch screen operation, menu structure, device options, fixing), route creation (input options, route calculation) and route navigation (visual guidance, acoustic guidance, map and route display).

“Arriving Informed! SFT-Magazin 2/2010 - Navigation systems: The new top class navigation systems not only show off with extensive features - valuable services deliver traffic news and more via mobile data radio. SFT tested Garmin’s top models, Navigon and Tomtom. Review details: Three navigation systems were tested. They were rated 2 x “very good” and 1 x “good”.

Beyond Navigation CAR & HIFI 3/2009 - Three brand new products show that the market for navigation systems has much more to offer than suction caps and goosenecks. Review details: Three sat-navs were reviewed. They did not receive final ratings.

“Good Guidance? connect 11/2009 - TV or clever route - the four new navigation systems in the test show a lot of convincing talent, but not all are alike. Review details: Four navigation systems were tested and rated 3 x “very good”, and 1 x “good”. Test criteria were features (navigation, communication, entertainment), handling (operation, destination entry, system speed ...) as well as destination guidance (audio and visual guidance, positioning accuracy) and route calculation (across country, city, dynamic).

Becker Active 43 Talk reviewed Navigation-Professionell.de 11/2010 - The red design elements on the new Becker Active 43 Talk produce an emotive response: its screen frame, Becker button and user interface are colour coordinated and have the potential to attract a swathe of admirers. But it’s not only the look of the device which has got people on the edge of their seats; its features list is also very exciting. This is because Becker has used its tried-and-tested, iGO based navigation software.

Arrive Better connect 7/2009 - So the holiday trip won’t be cancelled: With a sat-nav you will find your way stress-free and comfortably into holiday paradise. But which of the three brand new test canditates is the right one for you? Review details: Three sat-navs were reviewed. They were each rated “very good”. Test criteria were features (navigation, communication, entertainment), handling (operation, destination entry, system speed ...) as well as destination guidance (audio and visual guidance, positioning accuracy) and route calculation (across country, city, dynamic).

Sat-nav in iPhone Look Focus Online 7/2010 - With the nüvi 3790T navigation device, Garmin deviates from the concept of creating a matter-of-fact working tool for the first time and instead focuses on design.

German quality - Italian elegance mobile next 3/2009 - The decision for or against a navigation device only rarely comes down to the quality of the guidance to destination. Almost all sat-navs can guide you safely and reliably from A to B. These days its likely to come down to the extras and trappings that these devices have to offer. That’s why the Z 250 has so much to offer. With the Ferrari edition of the Traffic Assist Pro, Becker has put together an attractive package.

You haven’t quite reached your destination. Guter Rat 8/2008 - Six mobile navigation systems had to prove what they are capable of. We tested their navigation, user-friendliness and features. Review details: Six navigation devices were tested and given ratings between 1.0 and 2.0. Test criteria were features, handling and navigation.

Improvements in the details Navi-Magazin 7-8/2008 - Garmin has a ‘welcome problem’. What is an established manufacturer of well-engineered navigation systems supposed to do when the market is screaming for innovation and novelty? Review details: Single test. Among other things, test criteria were intuitive operation, calculation speed and map quality.

Navigation systems are no longer a luxury or merely the reserve of international lorry drivers. They are now available in all price classes and promise to bring all drivers safely and quickly to their desired destination. Whether fixed in the car, kept in a holder, used on mobile phone software or even in combination with a Pocket PC, the satellite supported navigation system leads you safely through the roads of England and Europe in the shortest or fastest way possible. Navigation system screens are especially practical, with a 2D or even a 3D display of your current location and a red line marking your route. In addition the driver receives spoken instructions in a gentle female voice that means there is no need to take his or her eyes off the road. A large part of the systems is expandable with additional material e.g. internet downloads and updated maps.
