The Navman S50 3D satellite navigation system features a brilliant, sharp 4.3-inch colour widescreen touch screen display, integrated Bluetooth module, points of interest, speed cameras and intelligent day/night display. The Navman S50 3D is preloaded with the latest maps of UK and Ireland and features turn by turn navigation with voice guided instructions and a full 8-digit UK postcode searches with 2D and 3D moving map display. Plus, with the Navman S50 3D, you can navigate via images with 'NavPix'.

Bluetooth hands-free calling

The Navman S50 3D allows for Bluetooth connectivity with compatible mobile phones. Make and receive calls safely and legally while driving - incoming calls are not interrupted by navigation directions and the caller's name is displayed on the screen. Your phone's address book synchronises automatically every time you connect, and if you share your Navman S50 3D, multiple pairing allows you to connect up to 5 different phones.

Navigate to pictures with Navman's innovative NavPix feature.

A NavPix photo carries its exact location data, which your Navman uses to navigate to - handy if you don't have the address or postcode of famous places you would like to visit. For example, who knows the exact address of the Eiffel Tower, the Tower of London or the Brandenburg Gate? By combining images with geo-referencing, NavPix lets you use images, such as the Eiffel Tower, as points of interest (POIs). You can then use those NavPix images when planning routes on your Navman S50 3D.

Preloaded speed camera data

The Navman S50 3D is pre-loaded with a free trial of the Navman UK speed camera database. The latest safety camera data is fully integrated with the Navman S50 3D. Colour coded speed camera icons are displayed on the Navman S50 3D so you can easily recognise the type of speed camera on your route. You can also select your proximity range allowing you to decide when you should be alerted of an approaching speed camera.

Navman S50 3D Questions and Answers

Question: IIhave a NAVMAN S50 3D device that I understand is no longer supported by Mio. Is there any third party support available for map updating?

Also, with the Traffic Cradle on offer, can it be attached to the standard suction cup fitting and, in relation to the S50 should the aerial be located?

Answer: We have no knowledge of any third party maps for the Navman S50 3D. If you did find any they would probably overwrite the operating system and change the display on screen.

The T2 does attach to the original Navman suction cup mount. The T2 comes with an external antenna but, depending upon your vehicle power cable, the mini USB connection may prevent insertion of the antenna jack plug.

If you buy the correct cable this includes a built in antenna in the vehicle power cable. We also include a T2 with this purchase.

However, you will need to know that your Navman S50 3D is capable of decoding the TMC signal. If not, you will not receive the Traffic Messaging Channel.

You will need internet access and, in accordance with the manufacturers’ recommendations, regularly seek out and accept all firmware or software updates offered by the manufacturer.
