Strada Portable Mobile Navigation System with 5" LCD Screen & GPS Assist


Strada Portable Mobile Navigation System with 5" Widescreen LCD Monitor, GPS Assist, Easy-to-Use GUI, Bluetooth® Hands-Free Calling and Sturdy Mounting Bracket


Large 5" LCD in a Slim, Compact Design
The Strada Portable Navigation System boasts a generously large 5" widescreen LCD monitor in a slim 5.08" wide by 3.42" high by 1.22" deep body, making it extremely compact and easy to carry. Take it with you to deter theft, but also so you can show off your digital photos1. The large, easy-to-use touch-panel screen is great for sharing slide shows, with a choice of five time settings. You can even set the initial screen image to your favorite snapshot using the Picture Viewer function.

Easy-to-Use Interface
Strada's simple and intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) uses contrasting colors and textures for extra clarity, with a minimal number of large, easy-to-use buttons so you can concentrate on driving. Choose from a selection of keyboard layouts to suit your preference (ABCD, QWERTY, AZERTY), with symbol and numeric input capability. Keep both hands on the wheel while setting your destination with Strada's Voice Command function, which learns to recognize your vocal characteristics for enhanced accuracy, regardless of language or dialect.

GPS Assist Compensates for Interrupted Signals
GPS Assist provides positioning compensation in case of poor GPS reception. An electronic compass helps make sure Strada tells you the right way to go when exiting a multi-level parking garage, and the Smart Assist function smoothly adjusts the position based on map data when the GPS signal is interrupted, as when driving through a tunnel.

You're Always on Your Way
Plan your route in the comfort of your home or hotel without receiving GPS signals. Preview distances and travel times, even simulate the drive on-screen. With map coverage of the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico, including detailed city maps and a vast Point of Interest (POI) database, you can go almost anywhere across town or across the border. With Strada, map updates are easy: Simply transfer new map data via SD card or direct USB cable connection. For rapid search and display, you can save your favorite destinations, like your home address, or choose from the "Last Destination" list of your 30 most recent trips.

Secure Mount Keeps Strada in Place
Strada's secure window or dash suction mounting bracket features "quick click" fixing buttons for fast and easy mounting and removal of your portable navigation system.

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Unit I found this to be a very good unit. Easy to use. The screen is biggest I have seen! Loved the Bluetooth feture as well. March 18, 2009
Rated 2 out of 5 by Dissatisfied The screen is beautiful. It uses small fonts but they are clearly readable at doy or night. The unit gets a quick GPS fix after being turned on. The power switch is in an inconvenient location which requires you to remove the unit from its windshield mount if you forgot to turn on the "Mains". Once running, the position indicated on the display lags compared with the actual position. The lag seems to increase with speed. At 50 mph the lag is about a little more than 1 city block (2 to 3 seconds). This lag make it very easy for you to miss turns. There are a couple of software updates but they and what they do is somewhat confusing. Customer Support did not clarify. I installed one of the updates, which seemed to be the latest one. This brought to life a major shortcoming: all my favorites were erased. There was no warning when I applied the update that this may happen. This GPS has no way of saving your favorites. I had to spend a few hours re-entering them. After I applied the update the software version indicated by the GPS unit changed but it was not the version indicated at the Panasonic site where I downloaded the update. The lag indicated above is still present. The quality and level of the sound when using a bluetooth cell phone is below expectations. November 26, 2008
Rated 3 out of 5 by Amuses, or annoys? An a little bit difficult usage and inaccurate software characterize the product. He works slowly. Can be seen, and audible. November 19, 2008
Rated 4 out of 5 by Driving will never be the same ! I now have almost a year of experience with Panasonics CN-GP50TC and I'm very satisfied with its capabilities. Nevertheless I'm still awaiting its FIRST update in MAPS, because I live in the proximity of a motorway which is not shown on my *STRADA*. Yet it's the best navigator, with good speedcam-detection, with traffic-updates and reroutings and with a handsfree-fuction for my mobile phone (KRZR-K1). Updates for software are OK when you follow the directions of the PDF-manual strictly. I'm no computer-wizzard, and yet the software updates run smoothly. All-in-all a certain and positive recommandation !! dododo / NL / Europe. November 2, 2008
Rated 4 out of 5 by Strada GPS I recently used the Strada on a trip to Mountain View, CA. It did not seem to have any many points of interest in its database. On another search, I had to expand the area of search several times so it could find the San Jose International Airport. The touch screen is not as sensitive or responsive as I would like, but overall I would suggest that this is an okay GPS. I do like the feature that allows me to save the current position, that was great, although sometimes it would not let me do that. This great feature is hidden a couple of menus in. The computerized voice is.. well, a computerized voice, really mangling some words. I received a major discount when purchasing this GPS because I bought a new Panasonic Viera TV, but I wouldn't have paid full price for it knowing what I know now.... October 20, 2008
