I have the Navigon 5 software, I am thinking of selling it.
I used it on a PDA last year, it was bought new from Navigon.
I now have a TomTom system and no longer want the software. To be honest I hardly used it as I preferred the TomTom system.
I am now thinking of selling it , the discs and instruction book are as new.
Do I have to notify Navigon before selling it or can I just sell it as is.
I have no idea about price etc but I was not sure if there would be problems about selling, I am sure I can find proof of purchase somewhere.

I bought Navigon MN5 S/H on DVD from ebay last year.
I called Navigon to activate it and they "checked their user database" before agreeing that I could re-register this copy.
I later discovered that the licence requires that the original user de-registers before they will do this.
I subsequently "upgraded" to Navigon MN6.2 which required me to de-register N5 and provide them with the details of my MN5 serial number.
My copy of Navigon MN5 is now marked as "upgraded" and is not re-sellable as it would not now be re-registered by Navigon.
So, maybe it would be worth your while to de-register your copy before you sell it and check that it can be re-registered by the new owner.
Hope this helps

As far as I was aware the licence was not transferrable to another user. To another device; yes. Entirely possible. You need to notify them with lotsa evidence and the like...
I prefer Navigon for quite a few things but it doesn't do full postcode resoloution alas, but hey, it's good enough ;)
