What to do with a Navman S50?
So I had this Navman that worked fine, but then it's rare I'll leave anything alone. Had a quick mooch online to see how to unlock it, because it runs WINce I figured I could use it as a PDA too. Unlocking it was easy and quick, then after a phone call to a mate to see what programs I could put on it he said "Nip over and try this disc".
So I nipped, then uploaded the disc and was amazed at what is on there now!!! I have now got 11 different navigation programs including the original one, Tom Tom and Garmin
Although the most impressive has to be this one
This has 3D maps in the cities. The buildings are the right shape, colour and actually look like the buildings they represent.
On top of this there are also various media players
Including window media player
Then when you get bored of music you could always just pop a movie on(I just tried a short clip to see if it worked).
Or just have a wallpaper of whatever you wish
And of course pretty much every type of tool, useful or otherwise
So having got all of this working I connected an audio lead, 3.5mm jack to phono lead, to the back of my headunit and plugged it in to the headphone socket on the Navman. This way the audio is a lot better than using the mono speaker in the back of the satnav and, on journeys that I know the way on, the otherhalf can sit and watch a movie or play the games. The only problem is trying to get a big enough SD card to put movies and music on.
Still, that was how I spent this arvo and evening. I'm happy with the outcome. I didn't think for a minute I could make a satnav so useful.
