Summary: The navigon has very good and apparently current maps. The GPS is user friendly, has an excellent display. I have used several GPS's and this unit is in my opinion has the best overall rating. The voice input will work but apparently it doesn't understand southern language very well. Nevertheless I have had limited success in using the voice input. It has taken me multiple time to obtain the correct input.
do not buy a Navigon unless you're absolutely sure it's working properly! And even then . .

Excerpt: It seems like a nice device with very useful options like TMC, Bluetooth en a FM transmitter. And I suppose that there's nothing wrong with its design. As long as it's functioning. . . About a month ago I purchased the Navigon 8110. From the start it wasn't doing what it was supposed to do: navigating. No gps reception, no gps receiver icon on the screen. So, after two days of failed trials and resets, I tried to contact the support desk.

Excerpt: I have got one of these from Navigon direct and I can say the unit is fantastic. The Voice recognition works really well and even identified my street (I normally have to spell it out to take away places, so didn't expect the GPS to recognise it).Instructions are nice and clear, windscreen mount is a very nice and easy to use design, although it has a 4.8" screen the unit itself is actually smaller and more pocketsized then my previous 4.3" GPS unit.Lets not...
Excerpt: Really excellent replacement for a dead TomTom 910. On screen graphics are nicer than anything I've seen before. Especially the 3D view where you can see the undulations in the land etc. Really top notch build quality, the screen bracket looks like it cost £50 alone. Free traffic over the air is a bonus also. 100% recommended!
