Summary: I love the theme/software Navigon uses; had a very old Navigon GPS from 2007 that I bought in Italy with USA maps installed. It worked well there and here. So I disregarded all the negative reviews about the support and USA Navigon going out of business.
Summary: I've had the unit about a week. It acquires satellites very quickly, around 1 to 2 min. The screen is bright and readable although there is really no night screen, just a dimmer day screen which is too dim. Lane assist and traffic work well. The mount is bulky to carry around but it works well.
If you can get it cheap it's features make up for bad signal

Summary: the 2200t is a nice compact navigation system with alot of top end features for a low price. the major selling point for me was the free traffic updates for life. **Pros** The realistic view of the highway interchange is pretty cool.
Summary: Like another reviewer on here previously owned mio basic gps I as well owned the mio 220-230 model I believe. It was a basic model but I loved it. I had to replace it. so decided to upgrade to navigon 2200. It's okay but I'm 100% sold on it. It takes forever to acquire a signal.
Summary: I got this product because of the excellent and interested features it has. The design and the features are great. Therefore, it requires a lot of time (15-20 minutes) to detect a satellite signal. I wish if Navigon will work on that.
Summary: Like the other reviews, I like the design and its 3 D maps. I only have 1 problem with this unit. Its antenna is so poorly designed. It takes a long time to find the GPS signal. Everytime I turn it on, and try to use it, I have to wait 2-5 minutes to find its location. That is if I am not driving.
Summary: Though there are "1/4" the number of features in our Garmin 260 compared to the Navigon 2200T, my wife and I prefer the Garmin. For us, the slow time to lock to the satellite, the user unfriendliness, and the small screen buttons were tolerable.
Summary: Newegg lowered the price 30 dollars right after I ordered it but I am used to newegg doing this.
Pros: Nice color, small and thin design
Cons: Must have power adapter plugged in for live traffic to work. Even with fully charged battery it will not pick up live traffic. Also when you put the unit in standby it can take sometimes 15 minutes to get a GPS signal. I would have never bought this unit if I had known these two things.
