Navigon 5100

 

Though it'll be tough to stand up to the big boys such as TomTom and Garmin, the Navigon 5100 has a fighting chance by offering some useful navigation features that go beyond the basic turn-by-turn directions. First, there's a traffic receiver...

The sleek Navigon 5100 has an integrated traffic receiver with subscription-free traffic service. There's also a lane assistant function for optimal routing and text-to-speech functionality.

The 5100's screen is on the smaller side, and it's slow to get a satellite fix. The design of the vehicle mount may not fit everyone's personal taste.

The Navigon 5100 offers drivers a number of useful navigation tools beyond basic driving directions; we just wish it had a larger screen and a slightly lower price tag.

More than the average GPS system for the same price. Many options that are on other brands price higher.

The only thing negative things are that the slow times acquiring GPS siginal. Also the window mount can no be tightened, so I use a little electrical tape.
