Navigon 8100T


Editors' note: Parts of the Features section were taken from our review of the Navigon 7200T, since the two GPS units share a number of the same features.

The Navigon 8100T offers a large 4.8-inch touch screen and a panoramic 3D map view. The GPS also has text-to-speech functionality, address entry via voice, integrated Bluetooth, and a free lifetime traffic subscription.

Panorama 3D view doesn't display street names. The 8100T's general performance is slow and the voice entry system isn't very accurate. The touch screen wasn't the most responsive.

The Navigon 8100T offers an impressive feature list, including panoramic 3D map views, but the GPS doesn't deliver where it counts most: performance.

Navigon 8100T


While name-brand GPS manufacturers like Garmin and Magellan duke it out in the high-end GPS market by piling on extra features like media players, relative newcomer Navigon has set out to distinguish itself with something new entirely. Its fresh...

Beautiful 3D maps; solid mount; premium feeling case; attractive interface

Expensive; poor Bluetooth speakerphone quality; unintuitive POI entry

the 8100T should definitely be on your radar for its superior 3D rendering, free real-time traffic, and swank design.

Navigon 8100T


Its breathtaking 3D Panorama view and voice destination entry make this high-end navigator worth a look.

On paper the 8100T seems like the ulitmate navigator, but the unreliable voice recognition and incomplete topographic maps give us pause. Some may prefer the Navigon 2200t ($229), which has a smaller 3.5-inch display but also offers lifetime traffic...

Navigon GPS Unit Looks Pretty, Takes Its Sweet Time


Navigon's new top-of-the-line dash-mounted GPS is a capable travel companion, if a bit sluggish.

Navigon 8100T GPS Navigator


In the portable GPS market, most mid-range and premium navigation products have a fairly predictable set of featuresit's rare to see a unit that's truly unique. Amenities like a 4.3-inch screen, live traffic updates, built-in maps, a robust POI (points...

Large, 4.8-inch screen. Outstanding graphics in Panorama View 3D. Lifetime traffic subscription included. Text-to-Speech. Multi-segment routing. Fast route calculation times

Expensive. Relatively limited POI search capabilities

The robust Navigon 8100T features a large screen which shows an impressive 3D panorama viewbut the eye candy doesn't come cheap.

Navigon 8100T Bluetooth Portable GPS Navigator with Free Traffic Review


Navigon 8100T brings together a very large 4.8 inch (12.2 cm) widescreen display and Navigon's new Panorama View 3D. The screen size is significantly larger than the common 4.3 inches and has only really been seen before in in-dash mounted units such...

First Look: NAVIGON 8100T with Panorama View 3D and brushed metal housing


We previously covered the announcement of the NAVIGON 8100T, and earlier this week we had a chance for some hands-on time. First off, the NAVIGON 8100T is HUGE-in a good way. It sports an extra-wide 4.8″ display, and it's something you have to see to...

Navigon 8100T GPS Navigator


Although more pricey than much of the competition, this Navigon may be worth the spurge for a technophile. It offers voice destination entry (you can verbally tell it where you want to go), free real-time traffic updates, turn-by-turn prompts, and a...

Navigon 8100T


Last week we purchased the 8100T and will be returning it today. I would not want to recommend this product to anyone. It is absolutely brutal trying to input destination addresses by speaking, very frustrating when the address information I input...

"Awesome unit."


I travel for a living and this is my forth GPS. I have run the 8100t through it's paces on several trips throughout the Northwest USA. It's an excellent performer in all respects. Navigon got it right.

Responsive, good screen size, road condition alerts, easily tailored to individual desires, gets you where you want to go on time.

Minor issues with inputing text to search for POIs.
