Great navigator; horrible interface

Ian, Amazon
15 January 2011
  • 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.

  • Summary: I own this GPS (Navigon 7100 4.3-Inch Widescreen Portable GPS Navigator ) since June 2008 its not a perfect one but its ok. Since I bought this GPS I have used this GPS extensively while travelling from Chicago to New York city, Houston and Florida and enjoyed it.

Navigon 7100

FrankL3404, Rate it all!
7 December 2008
  • 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.

Good price But you will need to spend extra $100

J. Spellman, Amazon
2 November 2008
  • Summary: Extra $100 will need to be spent for current map update and for dash mount, as windshield mount doesn't stay attached. It's too long. Mine fell off 3x in first week and broke. Vendor Globazar? said it was a wear and tear issue and suggested I contact Navigon as they are aware of the problem.

Returned for Slowness and POI Search

RichieV, pcRUSH.com
25 July 2008
  • 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
  • Cons: Bulky, Complicated Controls, Difficult Menus, Flimsy Mounting

Not quite there...

T. Bruno, Amazon
13 February 2008
  • 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 POI database is horrible and very out of date.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.

Caution

Driven mad, Amazon
6 December 2007
  • Summary: The Navigon is great in many ways - love the display, especially the 3D bit. One thing that is driving me mad - if you go a little way over the speed limit it keeps saying 'caution' repeatedly! It may be useful to hear it once, but there is no way to shut it off.

Some very useful features but ...

WC, Amazon
29 November 2007
  • Summary: While there are some very good features, the core functionality of getting the best route from point A to B is not something to rely on (See Update 12/07/07 below). After driving around Chicago for three days with 7100, I am going to return this unit.
