Want to know what to buy for your nearest and dearest drivers to keep them safer on the roads, read on...
Christmas gift ideas: learner drivers, P-platers
It’s simple – they can’t use their phone while behind the wheel. There are very strict laws in place in all states and territories, some don’t realise they risk distractions, big fines, loss of licence and worse if they use their phone. So, while they are grappling with new and different situations behind the wheel, they also must figure out where to go, which lane to take, remember not to speed and much more.
Give them a Navman MOVE120M GPS. With an RRP of just $139, not only will it provide all the guidance they need to get from one place to the next, it will save them money with speed and safety camera alerts, as well as reminders to slow down in school zones. Program in your address and they’ll always find their way home, wherever they’ve been, and they can also find parking and petrol at the touch of a button.
RRP: $139 Available at all major electronics retailers. For more information see www.navman.com.au
Christmas gift ideas: Parents who spend a lot of time in their car (driving kids around)
Whether it’s driving to work, driving for work or running kids around to various sports and social activities, life on the road can be super stressful for these people.
If they already own the perfect travel mug, you may want to check out the Navman CRUISE650MMT – a GPS that is all about making life a little cruisier for busy drivers, helping to find the location of that new sports ground, restaurant or shopping centre. The fast processor in this device helps serve up information quickly, and its large screen, lane guidance and 3D junction views make seeing and hearing exactly where to go and when, a cinch.
Connect your phone to the device, and they’ll never have to worry about fines for using their phone behind the wheel again. Speaking of fines, they’ll also get reminders of upcoming speed and safety cameras, as well as the all-important school zones, live traffic alerts and the ability to re-route at the touch of a button, help reduce delays and waiting times. There is also the convenience of planning out your day. If they need to make multiple stops – running from basketball courts to Bunnings, to ballet class, or even fitting in something for yourself – the multi-trip planner is a godsend, helping plan out the most efficient route. There is even an instant search for cafes, fuel, ATMs and food, among other things.
The Navman CRUISE650MMT features a smart new design with a magnetic mount to easily snap in and out whenever you need, a smooth glide LCD screen and USB power adapter. RRP: $229 Available at all major electronics retailers. For more information see CRUISE650MMT
