Uniden leads the way with stylish new 5” GPS

Getting from A to B has become even easier with the launch of Uniden’s new iGO500, a super sleek GPS giving drivers access to the latest mapping technology and user-friendly features. 


Chic, modern design is at the heart of the iGO500. This 5” ultra slim, ultra flat GPS is no thicker than an iPhone with brushed silver edging, and features a bright and intuitive touch screen that displays roads, landmarks and terrain in vibrant 3D detail. Partnering good looks with great performance, the iGO500 comes preloaded with the latest Sensis Australian and New Zealand mapping, eliminating any worries drivers may have about out of date or incomplete maps.

Built for exceptionally easy operation, the iGO500 includes a Junction View feature which illustrates upcoming intersections, as well as Advanced Spoken Street Names. Used in conjunction with Advanced Lane Guidance and Signpost Information, these features ensure drivers receive the most accurate turn-by-turn instructions. Large icons, predictive text and logical menu design enable quick and easy operation while on the road, making it a hit for those who want to get from A to B without hassle.

The iGO500 also features an innovative Green Routing tool. By calculating fuel consumption and carbon emissions across a number of route options, the driver can then select the journey which will have the smallest environmental impact. Alternatively, the system is also capable of calculating the fastest, shortest or easiest route from the available choices.

Designed specifically for Australia and New Zealand, the iGO500 comes with a Latest Map Guarantee and is supported by Uniden’s GPS website www.naviextras.com. Global mapping is also available, while holidaymakers can take advantage of Rent-A-Map, a cost-effective alternative to purchasing maps outright.

Other key features include:
• 360 degree 3D Landmark Software showing famous locations such as King George Square, Melbourne Cricket Ground and the Sydney Opera House;
• 360 degree 3D Terrain Software showing road elevations and land contours including overpasses and bridges;
• Early Warning Safety System with fixed speed and red light camera warnings, school zone and railway crossing warnings and an over speed alert;
• POI Route Planning – up to 1,000,000 pre-programmed Points of Interest (POI) including restaurants, accommodation and more.

The Uniden iGO500 is available exclusively from Officeworks. RRP $169.95
