CARAVANNERS CAN NOW add smart-routing to their Navigon sat-navs for under £100.

Rather than risk encountering narrow lanes, low bridges or other troublesome trails, users can programme the Navigon with the height, width, length, weight and axle load of their vehicles and the unit will calculate accordingly.

CARAVANNERS CAN NOW add smart-routing to their Navigon sat-navs for under £100.

 

Rather than risk encountering narrow lanes, low bridges or other troublesome trails, users can programme the Navigon with the height, width, length, weight and axle load of their vehicles and the unit will calculate accordingly.

 

Plenty of useful locations

Around 16,000 points of interest (POIs) indicate suitable petrol stations, 24-hour shops and jet washes suitable for large vehicles.

 

The Navigon Camper and Caravan Navigation costs £100 and is a download upgrade for certain models. The download works with Navigon 40 and 70 Premium sat-navs, as well as 6310 and 8410 models.

 

Add on the cost of the cheapest compatible unit and the total cost is still around £320, so it's not cheap, particularly as no campsite POIs are included. It's still a cheaper option than the impressive Snooper S7000.

 

The upgrade is available now from Navigon Fresh
