Summary: Navigon’s 2150max is certainly reasonable value at this price. Lane assistance, text-to-speech and Bluetooth hands-free combined with comprehensive safety warnings and a reasonably intuitive interface make it a credible choice.
Pros: Sleek design, easy to grasp interface, lane assistance, text-to speech, Bluetooth hands-free, Road Sense Safety
Excerpt: You'd think that with TomTom having such a sizable market share of the personal satellite navigation device market, there'd be little point in anyone coming in and trying to mop up. However, if you can start with a clean slate and not simply try to emulate an existing formula, there's a chance you'll produce something innovative and different.
Summary: This is a great GPS if you have a piano black fetish. For the rest of us, it's just OK. Its good points (Aussie-capable text-to-speech, junction view, extended lane info) are balanced out by an inconsistent interface and unfriendly windshield mount.
Pros: Handles Aussie street names pretty grouse, Junction view and lane info, Lots of piano black, Simple interface design...
Cons: ...that's unfortunately rather inconsistent, Lots of piano black, QWERTY keyboard, wherefore art thou?, Chunky, clunky windshield mount
