Navigon 8100T

 

Navigon's portable navigation devices (PNDs) haven't had the best track record when it comes to performance, but we thought the tide had changed with the Navigon 7200T , which offered a far better user experience than previous models had and boasted...

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

 

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...

Review: Navigon 8100T

 

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

Bright, touch-sensitive screen provides a nice pretty 3-D picture. Side volume controls allow you to hear clearly, without veering off the road

Lag time slow enough to incite road rage. Slow start up. Some destinations out of date

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...

GPS NAVIGON 8100T

 

The NAVIGON 8100T is a new, cheaper GPS system which offers 3D maps, which in my opinion are exponentially better than the standard 2D map systems. The 8100T offers an incredibly well detailed and abnormally large LCD screen, thus allowing you to...
