Summary: I liked this device very much, but am unable to update it and unable to contact customer service. During a recommended update, the Navigon Fresh software turned my device into an expensive paperweight.
Summary: I did about 8 months of research, and knew I wanted the Navigon 5100. I got it from my wife for Christmas. The two major knocks I read about this unit was that it was hard to hear it and the satellite reading was slow. I can tell you one thing, I have no issues with either one of those.
Summary: At this site the Navigon 5100 MAX is a great value. Take into account LIFETIME TRAFFIC UPDATES and TWO years of FREE map updates. Unit is shipped with Q3-2008 map installed.

Summary: feature rich but quirky and unreliable device. I have not used the device much over the last year (purchased Dec 2007 Xmas. This is partly due to the limited amount of travel during this period and partly due to the unit not functioning.
Summary: Edit May 2010: The maps in my 5100 are becoming rather long in the tooth, and it's starting to approach worthless. There are numerous roads and changes in the area I drive (IL/IN/OH/PA/WV/KY) that are not marked on the maps, and areas where the roads are undergoing wholesale changes (PA is...
