Thoughtfix got his hands on the Nokia N800 NAVKIT and after reading his review and watching the several videos, I came away pretty impressed with the system. The NAVKIT adds full GPS navigation functionality to the Nokia N800 Internet Tablet for a $249 direct, less at some online shops; the kit includes a Bluetooth GPS receiver, 2 GB memory card, car charger, mounting kit and the Navicore software. The price is less than many high-end, stand alone systems, but based on watching Dan’s video of the system in action, it appears quite comparable. This is also a great demonstration of how well the internal speakers work on this pocketable Internet Tablet.

Will it be as quick as a dedicated system? Not for waypoints and POIs plus screen glare and sunlight washout could also be a challenge; nonetheless it’s an impressive example of how the N800 can be extended. What I noticed most: the female voice in Dan’s NAVKIT setup is much nicer than the one in my Toyota nav system. Maybe it’s the way I drive, but she gets awful stern from time to time!

  1. Glad you liked it. The female voice was one of three preinstalled voices on the tablet and it is VERY chipper.

    Can I ask a favor? Instead of linking to any syndicated feeds, can you link right to tabletblog.com?

    Thanks!
