Thanks

I use one and love it. Use OziExplorer off road and SnartST for street navigation.

Hello Kevin - I think (not 100% up to speed on Navmans) that the ICN is restricted to using Navman supplied maps/software. I dont think you can use OziExplorerCe on it (which would mean you could use a wide variety of maps) as it doest have a suitable operating system ....unlike the PIN series of Navmans which have Pocket PC operating system for which OziExplorerCE (for example) is designed for.

You can use Oziexplorer CE with the Navman PiN it's works very well indeed, also the SmartSt streets and tracks is the best on the market, it's suburban street navigation is second to none, and in most situations Smart ST will take you on most of the tracks in National Parks, State forests and most offroad places all over Australia, Ozi just gives you more detail and the smaller tracks off the main trails.

In fact from Tom Groggan to Omeo via Davies High Plain we used SmartSt, and it did the voice navigation spot on all the way, gotta love that.

In 600 metres turn right, at the rounabout take the second exit :-))))

Thanks for the feedback, I saw the one at Dick Smith but even cheaper on e-bay. I have a bid on one for just over $500.
It looks like a good unit. I have a Garmin legend on my dirtbike, very handy Toys.

cheers

I have a Navman Pin, Model Mio 168, I use it mostly for storing Excel & Word docs, storing pictures, Calendar and event minder, and occasionally I sit it in its cradle for navigating in the Troopy, or Corolla. The navigation feature is great. I recently took it along the Bridle Track (NSW, back of Bathurst) and it was great because it showed all the hair pin bends coming up as I travelled.
I also compared its lat/long readings with my older Magellan GPS and the Pin agreed spot on with the Magellan.
