Summary: This model offers high performance at a reasonable price. Great Satellite reception even on a cloudy day. The vehicle I used in had metalized heat reflective windshild and this units built-in antenna had no problem with reception where other types of GPS models had trouble finding positioning satellites. I did'nt experince drop outs or losing position even while driving though bridges. However, an external antenna port is available.
Summary: Navigon 7100 4.3-Inch Widescreen Portable GPS Navigator
I received this GPS unit last Xmas and have been using it for the past year. I've used other GPS units and I have to say this one exceeded all my expectations by far. It's beautiful to look at and takes functionality to the next level. While ALL electronics can be a little glitchy from time to time I'll take this one any day. Most of my glitches are/were user error.
Summary: Comments about Navigon Navigon 7100: What can you say about something that almost seems like it’s smarter than the map that you are holding or the directions that someone else wrote down for you? It’s an amazing invention that I have no idea how people lived without. This navigator is very compact and does not get your view at all. I was very impressed with the graphics and color. I love the fact that I can get traffic updates on it so can change my route. Great Product!
Pros: Compact, Easy Menus, Easy To Set Up, Reliable Performance
Summary: Comments about Navigon Navigon 7100: Two things that completely sold me on this device: Free lifetime traffic updates It is just a bit on the bulky side, which made me less worried that I would lose it somewhere in my car. I know for some that is a drawback, but for me, it is a plus. I've saved myself much time using this because between my city and country driving, I frequently get lost. Not happening anymore!
Pros: Acquires Satellites Quickly, Easy Menus, Easy To Read, Easy To Set Up, Large Screen, Reliable Performance, Simple Controls
Summary: Comments about Navigon Navigon 7100: I'm on the road a lot, both for work and pleasure. I've gotten used to the fact that I usually need to loop around or take an extra exit. I used to enjoy those extra lenghty rides, but now all I can think about is the rising cost of gas. I bought this so I can stop driving extra distances to just get to my destination. Little did I know, this thing's amazing! It's just so cool what it does.
Summary: Comments about Navigon Navigon 7100: I am always getting lost when I am going on a trip. I have no idea how but I always seem to miss exits, drive 200 miles out of my way and never get anywhere on time when I am on a trip. Originally what should be a 4-5 hour drive usually turns into 18 hours of driving! My husband bought me this as a Birthday gift and I have not been lost since! I love this thing.
Pros: Compact, Easy Menus, Easy To Read, Easy To Set Up, Reliable Performance, Simple Controls
Summary: I will start off by saying that if I listened to the other reviews for this product I would have probably bought another type of GPS device. I am very happy that I did not pay any attention to the negative reviews for this product. This is a very good product. It gets me from point A to point B without any problems. It is very accurate a keeps up with the speed of the vehicle to ensure that I do not miss a turn.
Summary: I have been using this GPS for several weeks now, and have found nothing that I dislike. The visibility of the screen is excellent, and although I have some problems hearing, I have no difficulty in hearing it's directions. Some have said that to access items they had to tap more than once for the unit to respond, but I have not had that problem. It saved me time going to one place that I would have taken a different route but the way it took me was quicker.
Summary: Great design and great user interface, this GPS has a superb LCD screen in both day and night mode. The fine tuning of this unit is what makes it so powerful. Features like AVOID TOLLS and "Speed Check" which gives you a subtle warning that you are exceeding the speed limit by more than 10 mph for example make the unit extremely functional.
Summary: I've used Garmin and Magellan and, while all have their pros and cons, the Navigon is the most intuitive, easy to use and (most often) accurate unit I have used. The traffic updates work well and the unit is fast and reliable. No issues to report.
