Sure, this navigation device isn’t exactly small. Still, it’s quite capable, relatively inexpensive, and a breeze to operate. With a 3.5-inch no reflective touch screen, the 7.5-ounce Intellinav One is somewhat chunky. It comes with a 20-channel SiRFstarIII receiver, though, and a 1GB SD card preloaded with Navteq-based maps for the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, with 1.2 million POIs (points of interest) included.
To take advantage of the devices basic multimedia players, however, you’ll want to upgrade to a 2GB card. There are two features on the Intellinav One that you don’t always find in entry-level GPSs: multisegment routing and text-to-speech, which handily pronounces street names for you.
Finding an address is quite simple, too. As you enter letters, a two-line scroll box shows matching searches. When the complete address has been entered, you can save it as a favorite, show the location on the map, or navigate to the address. On my standard test routes, the Intellinav One created the same routes as did other Navteq-based GPS devices. Boasting an easy-to-use menu system and high-end features, the moderately priced Intellinav One is a solid choice.
