Summary: I thought I was upgrading from the Tom Tom Navigator 6 on my Palm Treo when I bought the Navigon 5100. Boy was I wrong. I entered a test route for the 5100 to take me from my home in Reno, Nevada to Carson City (Only 20 miles south). First, it was amazingly slow in calculating the route . . .

Summary: Rather than going into a prolonged review regarding the items I would like to focus on the issues that make this GPS most annoying. So much so that after having had it for 2 months I stopped using it altogether.
Summary: I have found other, far less expensive, superior units than this one. The good: 1) Sensitive, accurate positioning. 2) Attractive design (if a bit bulky...) 3) Zagat ratings (when you can get to them) are fun and occasionally usesul.
Summary: I recently received the Navigon 5100 as a gift (that I requested) and have been putting it through it's paces around Los Angeles. I am now returning it due to the fact that the routing is inaccurate and convoluted.
