Summary: I purchased one a year ago and was so impressed with the many features that I had to my another one for my wife's car. The built-in gps in her car was not as accurate as 8100t. The only thing that I don't like about this GPS is the holder/windsheild mount; it should be a bit smaller and more attractive like the gps itself(my opinion).
Summary: You cannot beat the features this GPS has, lane assistance with reality view, free life time traffic updates, 3D panorama view, Zagar reviews, speed warnings, and its stylish. I used to own a Nuvi and Navigon is far better than them, even without the service support, you will have to call Germany for that.
Summary: I have read reviews in other places and on Cnet, and all the complaints that were listed for Navigon were unfounded... The unit finds it's signal lock in a minute or less... The GPS messages can be heard above my normal volume level on my car radio, loud and clear... Destination entry is easy and quick... On screen information very helpful... Graphics very good... It works just as promised by Navigon... I'm totally satisfied...
Summary: I give good ratings because, this navition system can take you any place you want and calculate the rout in a matter of seconds. Before I bought my system I read a lot of reviews then I made my decision. I do not regret the purchase of that device and I recomend it to everyone. Please read my pros and cons and you will be better informed about this device. The pros are: 1). Nice, clear and big screen with 4.8 inch. 2).
The 8100T is a true gem - And I've tried most brands
7 June 2009
Summary: You can get great details on this unit from the big retail web sellers. And yes!, Navigon in just the last 30 days has announced it is leaving the North American market. Meaning maps and updates will be near impossible to get. OK, that's the bad news. BUT this unit is fantastic! From what I understand, Navigon/Becker/Harmon Kardon is a huge player in Euro GPS Market. They've been in business for years supplying car audio for Mercedes, Audi and nemerous others.
Summary: The Navigon 8100T is by far the best GPS of the higher-end class. It comes with real time traffic updates FREE, without any hidden charges, no activation fees or monthly fees. Also, the Navigon 8100T comes with Zagat Ratings of thousands of restaurants and hotels...also FREE, pre-loaded, and no monthly service charges. The graphics are unbelievably clear and the realistic topographic views are ahead of it's time, and unmatched by any other GPS I've ever owned or used.
