Derek loves nothing more than punching a remote location into a GPS, queuing up some music and heading out on a long drive, so it's a good thing he's in charge of CNET Australia's Car Tech channel.

In brief

The new MY series features two models: a 4.7-inch MY80T, and 5-inch MY85XLT. The MY80T features Navteq maps for both Australia and New Zealand, Bluetooth hands-free, traffic messaging, speed limit info, junction view and lane guidance. Voice recognition for destination entry is found only on the MY85XLT.

Vocal guidance is augmented by text-to-speech for spoken street names, enunciated safety warnings and landmark identification, such as traffic lights or petrol stations. Alerts are present for red light, speed and safety cameras, as well as for metropolitan school zones.

Outlook

The 2011 Navman MY range is on sale now, with the MY80T listed at AU$299 and the MY85XLT priced at AU$349.
