So so performance

sytang, Ebay

  • Summary: Its look is good, and the map update is free download unlike Tomtom. However, it is not easy to turn it on, (some time it turn on with the first try and some time it takes more ten try). The boot up time is much longer than Tom Tom. [Yes, I have a Tom Tom in another car] When it's close to the intersection, the name of the street that is crossing is not displayed. [It display the name up until about 100 yards away or so.

navigon 5100 gps

  • Summary: Navigon has a slick design and is more attractive than other similar GPS in the market. The navigon site states that the 5100 features Puerto Rico Maps and traffic information, but the traffic information would not work here. I tested my Navigon 5100 and had it running simultaneously with my Tom Tom, and Tom Tom performed better providing me the fastest route via highway, while Navigon choose an alternative route which has multiple traffic lights and was not as fast.

Navigon 5100 - Adequate

m3employee, Ebay

  • Summary: Saw this device on ShopNBCTV and thought it looked nice. Love the warning when you go over the speed limit and the graphics are pretty good. We immediately noticed the need for a software update since the parents' street was not recognized. I'd also like the warning for the next turn a little sooner.

Navigon 5100

Ethame, Rate it all!
6 December 2008
  • Summary: I bought this back in late 2006, early 2007 and at first I was very happy with it. It loaded fast, I liked the visual directions and it took me to where I needed to go. Then recently I started to get frustrated with it. I did the update and street names where somewhat off in terms of pronouncement. It would say Saint instead of St, for certain locations but then on my return trip say it correctly.

  • Summary: Comments about Navigon Navigon 5100: I never had one before so I didn’t have anything but other people’s testimonials to go by. I picked this as it seemed like the easiest to set up and I really liked the traffic alert stuff, I want to make sure I know when I am driving I’m not going to run into traffic because I hate sitting in traffic! The graphics and color quality is amazing on these. Have you seen one before?
  • Pros: Compact, Reliable Performance
