Summary: I originally liked this product, but they've discontinued US support and I can't even get updated maps, even though I paid for an extended deal to continue map updates into the future. Can't believe they sold it while disabling downloads to the US. I also am tired of the thing being unable to plug into power while displaying a route. If your battery runs out you have to wait until it is completely charged to use it again....and my battery lasts about 10 minutes.
Summary: I am very pleased with my Navigon purchase. This is an excellent navigational product! I have used this product in a few of my long distance travels and the visual display along with the various other options available are wonderful. I would recommend this product to anyone who uses a GPS system in their travels!
Summary: After I read the feathers that GPS has, I wanted to buy one so bad and I brought it on ebay. Unfortunately thid one does not have a memory card therefore can not use the device. Without the memory card there is nothing you can do with it. After I contacted Navigon they told me they do not make this model anymore and they are not in the US anymore. Can for the memory card for a good price and the update map cost about $90. Therefore I can not said much about it myself.
Summary: The good: once you enter a destination, you will not get lost. This GPS gets a satelite fix relatively quickly and rarely loses it (only when in tunnels). The voice directions are clear (though often very badly pronounced) and the visual cues are easy to follow. If you happen to miss a turn, the Navigon will recalculate the route very quickly without any annoying "Recalculating" message. You will not get lost with this GPS after entering a destination.
"Product is having lots of features but poor support."
28 November 2010
Pros: Navigon 7100 is having lots of exciting features such as text to speech, voice command for the stored destinations, bluetooth for cell phone pairing, life time traffic updates, graphical maps etc. Graphical maps are very useful for complex juntions.
Cons: Poor support for this product. The antenna cable for this is very weired. In the starting days the stand for this GPS was working fine but later on it became loose and GPS never stays straight. Takes more time to connect in the first place.
