The following information is intended only to explain your rights under the Warranty, not any rights you might have at law, including any rights and remedies available under the Australian Consumer Law and / or the New Zealand Consumer Guarantees Act 1993.

Under consumer law, do you have rights additional to those under the Warranty?

Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law or the New Zealand Consumer Guarantees Act 1993. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.

 

Who gives the warranty, and who benefits from it?

The Warranty is given by MiTAC Australia Pty Ltd (Navman) in Australia or New Zealand, depending on where you purchased your Product.

The Warranty is given to the original end-user retail purchaser who purchased the Product from an authorized Navman dealer.

 

What does the Warranty apply to?

The Warranty applies to the 'Product', which is a Navman navigation unit and inbox accessories (except USB cable) purchased from an authorised Navman dealer.  It does not apply to any of the things listed below under the heading 'What is not covered by the Warranty?'.

Where a separate software licence has been provided with the Product, the terms of that software licence apply to the software portion of the Product, and the Warranty applies only to the hardware portion of the Product.

 

What is the period of the Warranty?

The Warranty covers a one-year period from the date of original retail purchase in Australia or New Zealand, supported by a dated copy of the original sales receipt that is complete and legible. This is referred to as the 'Warranty Period'.

 

What does Navman warrant?

Navman warrants that for the Warranty Period the Product will be free from defects in material and workmanship and, where a user manual is provided, will substantially conform to the specifications and descriptions in the user manual. 

 

What does Navman offer, if the Product does not conform with the Warranty?

Within the Warranty Period, Navman will repair or replace (at Navman's option) Products that are defective or fail to conform with the specifications, where you comply with the Warranty Service Procedure. The Warranty Service Procedure is explained in detail further on.

  • non-rechargeable batteries
  • finishes
  • services performed or attempted by anyone other than an authorised Navman Service Centre
  • installations
  • any products, components or parts not manufactured by Navman, or
  • any claim in relation to infringement of any patent, trademark, copyright, or other proprietary rights, including trade secrets.

The Warranty does not apply to failure of the Product due to:

  • shipping

  • moisture or liquids

You should retain proof of shipping to evidence the date of shipment. Please send the item by registered post for tracking purposes.

Who pays for shipping costs and who is at risk, if the Product is lost or damaged in transit or during repair under the Warranty?

If you are sending your Product to be serviced under the Warranty:

  • You must pay for shipping and any insurance required to send the Product to Navman to obtain your Warranty Service.  You assume all risk of loss or damage to the Product until it arrives at Navman’s facility.  
  • Navman will pay for ground shipping of the new or repaired product back to you at an address in the same country as the repair facility and Navman will assume all risk of loss or damage to that product, until it arrives at the address you specify. You must request, and pay for, any different shipping method.
  • If Navman reasonably determines that the Product has not failed to meet the standards of the Warranty, you will be liable for the cost of return shipment to you and Navman may require you to pay those costs, before returning the Product to you. In that case, the risk of loss or damage to the Product will remain with you, even though Navman has had possession of it.

In addition, the repair of the Product may result in loss of data. Navman will not be responsible for the loss or alteration of any user data stored in the Product. You should back up or otherwise preserve any such data before sending the Product to Navman.

What laws apply to the Warranty?

If the Product was acquired by the original retail purchaser:

  • in Australia, then the Warranty is governed by the laws of New South Wales.
  • in New Zealand, then the Warranty is governed by the laws of New Zealand.
