Navman helps you, help mum this Mother’s Day

 

 
 

Pay mum back for years of looking out for you this Mother’s Day with the help of a Navman MY Series or EZY GPS.  The latest Navman models can help keep mum safer on the roads, just like how she has always looked after you. The Navman MY80T and MY85XLT sat-navs will help mum feel calm and cool on the roads with features that focus on safety or a Navman EZY model that makes using a GPS simple for mums that like straightforward technology.  For the more adventurous mums, Navman’s MY Escape will also ensure she has handy travel information at her fingertips on her next road trip.

“It’s not always easy to buy for mum  -  but a nice idea this Mother’s Day is to also think about what you can do to help mum relax to thank her for always being there for you – like making her a nice meal, doing her gardening or even teaching her something new.  

“Just like the way we turn to mum to help us stay cool and feel safer, you too can keep mum feeling self-assured and calm - at least on the roads with a Navman in-car GPS.  We’ve put together some gift suggestions as well as some acts of kindness you can put into action for your mum this mother’s day.”  Wendy Hammond, Navman Marketing Director Australia and New Zealand.

Make things easier for the mum that does it all with a Navman MY80T or MY85XLT:

 

From school events to work meetings to preparing dinner – how does she do it? This Mother’s Day take the load off by making mum a nice lunch and don’t let her lift finger to do any housework.ANavman MY Series MY80T or MY85XLT will also keep mum on top of her schedule and help her feel safer on the roads all year around. The sat-navs include spoken warnings for speed, red light and combined safety cameras, as well as spoken and timed alerts for school zones  that will help her avoid any nasty fines while ticking off her errands.

Teach the not so tech-savvy mum something new with a Navman EZY sat-nav:  

 

From your first steps to learning to drive, your mum has most likely taught you a thing or two. If your mum isn’t too tech-savvy why not give her a lesson on how to use computer, emails or even educate on the world of social media like Facebook or Twitter.

Navman’s Landmark Guidance feature included on the models will alsogive mum easier to understand directions - eg “turn right at the petrol station”. While a logbook function on the models is great for tax time as it will help mum keep track of the distances has travelled.

The model also has premium safety features like speed or red light camera alerts, spoken school zone warnings and speed sign limit information. While SUNA Predictive traffic information will direct mum on the best route to take at any day or time to help her avoid traffic jams.
