Riding With The New Navman

Jun 27, 2009

This week, The Gadget Grill got invited to try out a new Navman GPS… but rather than just put it in our hands and hope that we knew what we were doing (which is dangerous at best), the team at Navman came up with a slightly different way of showing us how their models get you from Point A to Point B.
