Summary: I purchased an 8000-series system 19 months ago - one of the most expensive models. About a year after I bought it, Navigon discontinued the model - and all map and software updates along with it. Just recently, I noticed the calculated routes were becoming less and less accurate, sometimes even taking you the opposite direction than it should take you to a destination.
If you live in the USA, forget about this product, no longer supported!

Summary: Purchased in December 2008 for $399 (big discount at the time). As the other reviews state, Navigon basically has told the US customers of any of their GPS units to go fly a kite! (I would use other terms, but...) The link for MyNavigon has been removed from their US site, no map or software updated so whatever is loaded on your unit is it!
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 purchased this item in June 2009 and have used it for about 3 months. The unit does a very good job (clean, easy to view graphics, good sound, lots of helpful prompts, many custom settings) when it works; work being the operative word. It has a tendacy to not want to turn on, or to rapidly turn itself off once on (this can be a frustrating game after awhile).
Summary: I purchased the Navigon 8100T gps unit fom BESTSELLER21 on July 18,2009.Before I comment on this purchase I like to explain the circumastances which led me to this decision. Weeks before I purchased a Navigon 7200T from [...] for $189. I tried pairing a Samsung cell phone to the unit with much difficulty sometimes it would work other times it would not. Most reviews about this 7200t said they could not get their bluetooth cell phones to work.
Navigon 8100T internal short, no response to service request!

Summary: My Navigon 8100T purchased in mid Feb 09 failed a month ago due to an internal short around the connection pins. It got hot enough to blister the plastic around these pins and around the in car mount. Potentially a fire hazard!!! Call the 888 - 848 - 0701 number and it referred all service requests to their website. Sent them over 6 email requesting service during the past 1 month & got not one response! Not even the form letter response!
