"Product is having lots of features but poor support."

Mangame, CNET
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.

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. If you already know where you're going, you won't follow its instructions.

BAD ROUTING Good Features.

Jitendra Gupta, Amazon
30 July 2008
  • 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. Well main feature of GPS is to take you from A to B, this is what 7100 doesn't do well it make me take internal route rather then HIGHWAY and also there is no way to change that.

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

Cool, yet frustrating!

J. Craig "megami76", Amazon
8 July 2008
  • 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. Unlike other units we tried in the store, such as the Garmin -- it's not intuitive.

Terrible Battery

Jan A. Bergeron, Amazon
10 May 2008
  • 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. The car charger takes forever to bring the battery back up to a full charge, and if I plug it into an "always-on" accessory port, it will drain my car battery overnight. Much more draw than leaving a light on in the car. And my car battery is new.

Good Hardware, Pathetic Software

Harish "Engineer, Photographer and Electr..., Amazon
3 January 2008
  • 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. Bluetooth works as advertised, pairing was a breeze. Inbuilt mic is excellent and so is the voice quality. The problems arised when you try to use what you really bought it for... navigation!
