More realistic driving?

Navman has re-launched its S-series of satnavs with three models that promise to guide you around points of interest - now in glorious 3D.

Navman's S-series now offers 3D navigation

The S30, S50 and S70 were originally launched back in September 2007, but each model has now been updated to include 3D landmarks of over 1000 buildings in European cities. For example, if you’re driving towards the Houses of Parliament in London, then the on-screen map will show a 3D rendering of the government institution.

The S50 and S70 are the premium models of the trio because both have 4.3in touchscreen displays, where as the S30 has a smaller 3.5in touchscreen. But the S70 has the added benefit of maps for 21 Western European countries.

All three models are available now, with the S30 priced at £100 (€130/$200), the S50 at £130 (€160/$260) and the S70 at £150 (€200/$300).
