Navman MY55T

Just like the 4.7-inch MY50T, but with added goodness in the form of Bluetooth hands-free, more memory, an FM transmitter, 3D landmarks and a higher capacity battery.

Derek loves nothing more than punching a remote location into a GPS, queuing up some music and heading out on a long drive, so it's a good thing he's in charge of CNET Australia's Car Tech channel.

"DON'T DO IT TO YOURSELF!!!!"

Roses posted a review   
Australia

The Good:Not one redeeming feature comes to mind... I just hated it

The Bad:There's not enough room here.

I finally beat this piece of crap unit to death somewhere along the road in Victoria after trying to work out how to get back to QLD. It froze (as usual) and no matter how many times I rebooted it, it was NOT going navigate across state lines. It would get to 97% of the Route planning and just freeze. Even when I tried to go to the map to see where I was it would not respond... it was frozen solid so the touch screen didn't work at all. So there I was, stuck in the middle of nowhere in the worst floods the Victorian Riviera has ever had and my stupid Navman would do NOTHING... NOT A THING! I had no idea where I was or which direction I should go in. Naturally, after hours of rebooting, pleading and praying, I ripped the stupid thing off the dash in a fit of rage and smashed it to bits on the dash. I know, I know... very unadult of me but OMG it felt sooo good to smash that piece of crap GPS to smithereens after being tormented relentlessly by it for a whole year.
Right from the very beginning it has played up something terrible. The screen freezes constantly, it takes you to your destination via Rome regardless of what setting you have it on, it takes forever to pinpoint your location

I have used 2 GPS units before this one and it is a waste of money. The other two were cheaper and much much better than this one.

The Good:none

The Bad:Terrible!

Used a Tomtom Go and wanted a bigger screen. Got Navman MY55T from dicksmith boxing day sale for $149. What a load of rubbish. Terrible touch screen, takes ten mins to find a sat, lane guidance is crap. i missed a turn going to the airport and went onto the westgate bridge, instead of telling me to go through footscary... i went over the bridge again... waste of time! not smart at all. School Zone still pops up at 2am. Speed alert not accurate (40km on burwood highway at 11pm?).

The Good:Appearance, size, easy touch (fake nails LOL)

The Bad:Delays in following where im driving (if that makes sense)

This is my first Navagator as i just got my license. I found this navman really good. there are a few things that were confusing for me like adding media, pics and setting a home address but after i looked into it i found it really easy. I give a thumbs up.

The Good:Advanced Lane Guidance, Big Screen

The Bad:No Auto Off

I received a MY55 from Navman after my 3rd S200 failed and I refused to accept another citing the "lemon clause" of the NZ Consumer Guarantees Act. Very dissapointed with no Auto Off even the base TomTom has this basic function. Will never spend $$ on a Navman again. Why don't they listen to their customers? How long can they exist with so much bad feedback?
