Great GPS, Small Price

spearmints69, Ebay
5 April 2010
  • Summary: it is a great value for $65. the screen is a little small (which is good and bad. good: doesn't block too much of the windshield; bad: not always easy to see). great features, but not exactly user friendly (make sure you have all destination set before you start driving). it's perfect... if you have a co-pilot.

Great Buy

Overstock
6 January 2010
  • 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. I have had a few things that I've had to get adjusted to this one with, but nothing major.

5100 Max..Best value

Overstock
5 January 2010
  • 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. Q3-2009 is available but its a hassle to download since the Navigon uses SD-133 technology and CANNOT use SDHC cards. The newest map requires a 4gb SD card and I can only find one that works from Trancend(Model TS4GSD133) They run just under 20 bucks.

Almost Perfect Purchase

Overstock
4 January 2010
  • Summary: I bought this product as a gift and was, at first, a bit dissapointed with the structure of the box. It appeared that the product had been thrown in, and the miscellaneous items as well. The box was torn and I had to reconstruct it to make it appear as if this were something I had done to check the quality before wrapping the gift.That aside, I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. Everything works fine, as I was hesitant because I bought a refurbished item.

Great GPS for a great price

mbazzoni, Ebay
1 December 2009
  • Summary: Navigon stopped selling and supporting all GPS units in the United States. They decided to go with an iPhone only app. I have enough going on with my iPhone, so I wanted a GPS unit that was small and easy to use and included traffic. For the price the Navigon 5100 GPS with 4.3" widescreen display that includes Free lifetime traffic was a perfect fit. The impressive thing to me was how well the traffic works.

Good GPS for the $

johananton, Ebay
9 November 2009
  • Summary: I bought this particular GPS because of the price. I only need one occasionally, I didn't want to spend a lot for a unit I use once a month and it had the features I wanted, mostly text to voice and touch screen, plus it has traffic reports, all for about $100. The good is the maps seem accurate, it doesn't take that long to acquire the satellites and calculates routes quickly.

Almost a great GPS

ca_music_guy, Ebay
6 May 2009
  • Summary: 2 things keep this from being a great buy and great GPS: 1 is the lack of enough sound volume. At anything more than idling at a stop there will be too much road noise to hear this unit when mounted on the windshield. 2 is the long time to cycle up if the unit has been unplugged for more than a few minutes. Besides these items the graphics are first rate among current units. The features like text-to-speech, lane assistance, and traffic advisory all work.

Good GPS

al_a16, Ebay
7 March 2009
  • Summary: On this device the bluetooth seems to forget how to connect with my cell phone. I have had numerous bugs with this feature. The menu is not as intuitive as you might expect and I have had some trouble connecting with the Navigon server. However, this is a good product. It provides excellent directions and re-routing is fast and accurate. The traffic feature has proved to be more useful than anticipated, plus it's free.
