Summary: I purchased this GPS to use when driving across country and through the maze of exits and interchanges that you run into in larger cities. The feature that caught my eye was the 'reality view', and I hoped it would take the surprises out of being in the wrong lane at the right time.
Summary: Pros: Reality view, lane assist, mounting bracket
Cons: Navigation, battery life, some displayed text is too small, tech support
Overall: Google Maps and Mapquest provide better routing. Navigon tends to make you get off a highway, detour through town, then get back on the highway again.
Summary: I have been using TOM TOM for past 3 years which is a good GPS. I bought Navigon cause my Tom Tom map was old so i have invest in map or new GPS i went for GPS. Looking at NAvigon 7100 which offers best feature for money i bought it.
Summary: Comments about Navigon Navigon 7100: I ended up returning this unit because it refused to find the same POI's that are shown on it's maps. I mean, it'll show Bally's on the map and you can't find it on the POI's...huh?!? and the map updates itself very slowly within NYC streets.
Pros: Acquires Satellites Quickly, Easy To Read, Easy To Set Up, Reliable Performance
Summary: We purchased our first GPS unit, the Navigon 7100, a couple of weeks ago and there's a few things I'd like to share. 1) It's not a user-friendly, out-of-the-box-and-start-using-it unit. You can't be lazy -- you really have to read the user guide.
Summary: I like the unit. The 3D display is great, it is easy to use, and so far it seems accurate. However, I only gave it 3 stars because the battery life is terrible. On a full charge, mine will only run for about 30 minutes...tops.
Summary: The Navigon has a great screen and very likely the best voice guidance of any device. POI database is horrible and very out of date. UI is pretty, but not intuitive which may only be a problem if you only use it occasionally and then need to find some feature or function while driving.

Summary: PROS: GPS acquisition, bluetooth, feature-rich CONS: Unacceptable routing and other annoying problems (all software-related) I bought this unit thinking I would keep it and show-off really! It looks very sleek. GPS acquisition is very quick and solid.
Beautiful Hardware, Bad Routing...(Edit to 4.5 Stars).but it grows on you....

Summary: I have been using GPS since 2002. They have all had their quirks, but one thing that was usually good, if not optimum, was the "routing" Navigon 7100, is beautiful, the software and the GUI is very nice, but what really takes a beating is the routing engine.
