If you love a good life hack that simply makes your demanding day easier, then rejoice! Navman’s latest GPS, the MY670LMT has been designed to help individuals and families enjoy a stress-free and safer driving experience while making your daily commutes more efficient. This premium 6”screen device includes the finest GPS features to take a load off in the car such as spoken safety alerts, warnings regarding changes to road conditions, the Zomato Restaurant Guide, Live Traffic Updates, Roadside Assist, lifetime maps and more.
“We’ve all had those bad days where things just aren’t going our way, whether we are taking the kids to a birthday party, after taking them to soccer and can’t find a particular street, or when there has been an accident on the freeway and half an hour gets added to the trip home from work. It’s frustrating and who has time for those moments? A reliable stand-alone GPS can really help cut time and keep your driving experiences more sane even if the rest of the day has been a bit hectic,” said Wendy Hammond, managing director, Navman Australia and New Zealand.
“For example, the Live Traffic Updates on this model will monitor traffic conditions every few seconds and suggests routes to avoid incidents so you can get on with your day. Directions are also easier to understand with Landmark Guidance that uses objects such as traffic lights, petrol stations, parks and churches combined in its directions to help guide you in unfamiliar areas. For example in 200 metres at Daily Park turn left into Smith St.
“The device even makes dinner plans easier as the in-built Zomato Restaurant Guide helps you find a great dining option for the whole family with reviews and restaurant recommendations in every Australian city and guide you to the door, even suggesting a nearby parking station if you need one.
“More importantly the safety features on the device are second to none with safety alerts that actually tell you when you are approaching a school zone or speed camera. Premium Driver Alerts will also warn you of changing road conditions such as upcoming merges, high wind areas or steep inclines. The MY670LMT additionally has a Roadside Assistance feature that will locate the closest help in the event of a breakdown and even provide GPS co-ordinates so you can give emergency services your exact location – a very useful feature for your next road trip,” she said.
The MY670LMT has a large 6.2” touchscreen, making directions clear and easy to see and follow. Other valuable features on this GPS include Lifetime maps so you always have the most up-to-date information on the road. It also comes pre-loaded with languages such as Greek, Turkish, Italian and Chinese. Bluetooth Hands-free additionally encourages you to keep your hands-off the phone and on the wheel, keeping everyone in the car safer.
There’s also a mileage reporter that comes in handy for logging in hours when if you are teaching your kids to drive; 3D Junction Views with real signage imagery, and Lane Guidance, so you never miss an important turn-off. In addition the device comes with tunnel simulation that allows you to know where you are when driving through a tunnel and multi-stop trip optimisation that allows you to easily plan several stops on your journey, for example your child’s footy sports ground, then a shopping centre and then a café for lunch.
The Navman MY670LMT comes with a generous two year warranty, and has a RRP of $199. It will be available at all major electronics retailers from mid-August. For more information please visit www.navman.com.au or facebook.com/Navman ANZ
