Navigon have had a hard time in the US market. Management changes, product release delays, inferior routing - you name it, they had it. Since a few months their situation seems to improve (they claim being number four in the market now), and they are actually releasing some devices. Here we have a look at the new "low end flagship" PND, the "2100max". We have taken it through our gruelling tests, let's see how it performed.

As you state, this is a review of the US version - UK & EU users note that we get the quicker version 7 of the Navigon software and FreshMaps for 2 Years (8 updates) for 20 Euros

It also has Lane Assistant Pro

Looks a nice unit for the money. And cheaper than buying regular map updates alone

If it doesn't crash!!!

It didn't crash during my tests, with the screenshot software running and keeping the processor nicely warm - I would think that says a lot.

I wonder if the USA will get the v7 software release later?. I see the 2110 max as simply a larger screen version of the existing 2110.

according to their comparison table Lane Assistant is also not available on the 2100, while it is included on the 2100max.

Here's a reply from Navigon regarding the MN7 question:

Quote:
MN7 will be available in the US on new products in fall of this year and an upgrade for legacy products will follow at a later date.

Apprently ViaMichelin will make it to the 8110 - in France initially - as a chargeable extra add-on (I like the way Navigon are offering extra niche features for small fees) - and to the rest of Europe, probably if successful

I will be one of the first to buy if ViaMichelin is offered on the Navigon! I have finally purchased a Nuvi 765t and will be testing it in Europe in January with POIs from other sources, but I would really want to get back the really useful Michelin guides that were on their original product.
