Summary: First, the good: Large, bright and crisp display. I like how it's easy to toggle between 3D and Track Up views, and easy to toggle Night Mode on/off. The lifetime free traffic data is a good bonus. But...
Summary: I found this unit somewhat disappointing. I also own a couple Garmin Nüvi 350's so I have something to compare with. My main disappointments relate to the absence of an automatic standby mode when power is low: my car does not have power to the lighter outlet when the ignition is off.
Summary: I owned this device for almost a week before returning it. On paper, this was SUPPOSED to be the premier GPS device. Well, not so much. I think, among folks that followed new GPS introductions, the Navigon 7100 was eagerly awaited here in the States.
Great potential...but wait for updates before buying

Summary: I've used a Navigon in Europe and was optimistic about this product. I received it last week. I've compared together in real time to the TomTom in our other vehicle as well as a Nuvi 650. Observations: US routing is well off the mark. Points of Interest do not function well, many are missing.
Summary: I've enjoyed this new car navigation system for a week and decided to return it. As you may expected this unit has very good graphical interface. In 2D and 3D mode, the displayed map is always beautiful. In the view of performance, this unit has a kind of reasonable performance.
Summary: Good: 1. Free traffic report with option to take alternate route 2. Bright and sharp lcd display 3. Lane-assist feature 4. Voice-recognition 5. Nice map display, you can see route few miles ahead Bad: 1. 50-60% of the time it gives very long routes compared to other gps units.
Summary: Wrote a review a few days ago but never got posted. Will try again. I used this GPS for a few days before I ended up returning it and I have to say that this is not up to par with some of the other GPS that I have been borrowing from my friends to use.
Summary: I loved the device when I got it, touchscreen didn't really give me too much trouble, the user interface was intuitive for most part. But issues started popping up as soon as I tried its navigation features.
Summary: The 7100 sure is sexy. It has all of the good looks and whiz-bang kinds of features (like "Reality View") that can really help to set it apart from what has become a great deal of "white noise" in the marketplace among so many GPS units that seem to be so similar.
