  • Pros: When it worked, it worked pretty well. The battery lasted a while too
  • Cons: It stopped working midway to a destination, it is fully charged and won't turn on and have found other people with the same problem, it had crappy volume, and the traffic helper was pointless

"Poor routing, worse POIs, then broke in first month"

MarriedWidow, CNET
5 December 2008
  • Pros: It was able to provide directions that would end up where I wanted to go, when it was working. Its website sends thank you automatically generated thank you notes for suggestions--when I emailed a letter seeking help
  • Cons: It provided out-of-the-way routes that wasted much time and gas. Its POI are close to useless--restaurants that have been out of business for years while missing most gas stations. When it broke within a month, their support was equally useless.

Someone did not understand what drivers need...

Rick V "Bargain hunter by day, shopaholic at ..., Amazon
2 January 2008
  • 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. Here goes, not in any particular order of annoyance: #1) Switching it on: there is a tiny leveled button that you, according to the manual, have to hold for 6 seconds to turn the GPS on.

Totally not worth it.

M. Ginsberg "Certified Mad Doctor", Amazon
27 December 2007
  • 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. 4) Easy switch between 2d and 3d maps and easy switch from day to night modes. The Bad. 1) Long acquisition time from cold start (~5 minutes). From a stand-by start, it's <2minutes.

NAVIGON 5100: Crap

J. Wood, Amazon
20 September 2007
  • 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. For example: (1) to go to work the Navigon 5100 takes me three blocks out of my way only to have me circle back and go the correct direction. (2) When I stray off course the unit often has me turn around and follow the street it first suggested.
