Navman M-Nav 650 hardware

Produced for

Navman NZ Limited



Project details

By 2004 Navman had grown to three divisions and hundreds of engineers yet there was little synergy between the division and the same IP was being independently developed.  I was actively looking at what was happening in all of the engineering divisions and realised that consumer iCN 650 navigation product would make an ideal starting point for a new class of commercial product.  I designed a new interface module to replace the flip out GPS so the unit could directly substitute for the existing MDT 800.  The new module extended the operating voltage to accommodate trucks operating at 24V.  It also handle the issue of automatically powering on the unit and shutting off to preserve the vehicle's battery life which the original iCN could not handle.
