Summary: Good: The Navigon 2200T offers free real-time traffic updates for life as well as text-to-speech functionality and reality view for major highway exchanges. Bad: The screen size is rather small. Satellite acquisition is slow. The Navigon 2200T can be the handiest and useful tool for the traffic updates and also the text-to-speech option makes the driving easier and comfortable. The device can be blissful for the highway runners.
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. Im sure I need to do map upgrade but last time I tried that I completely wipe out my system and had to send it back to navigon for them to reinstall the systems.
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. Well, after 2 weeks I am selling it on eBay b/c the store on Amazon only had a 7 day return policy. I could not use the registration link to register my new 2200T in order to purchase the Fresh map update on-line.
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. No problem with icons, etc as some have noted. There is however, no support.
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. Lots of POI with trademark (i know lame but cool) Text to speech (if you like that) Very small. Fits in your pocket. lil bigger than a ipod.
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. If I am driving and then turn it on. It takes forever to find the GPS signal??? This is a software issue. Even with 1 problem, I will return it because it is unacceptable.
Summary: I just received my Navigon 2200T and have it for about 2 weeks now. First impression on the unit is the design is very nice, small and compact which can easily put inside my pocket. The reason I get this one over the 7200T is the 4.3" might be a little too big to put in my pocket and it is a little heavier too (not to mention it costs more). Like the previous review said the screen is big enough to see the direction.
