NAVIGON 2100 Max
Today at CeBIT, NAVIGON announced a new GPS in their North American lineup, the 2100 Max. The biggest difference the “max” offers over the 2100 is a widescreen display.
“NAVIGON is building on the same product strategy that drove our success last year. We are committed to providing GPS systems with features that are relevant to the navigation experience,” said Andreas Hecht, NAVIGON’s President for the Americas. “We believe we’ve raised the bar with a competitively priced, feature-packed GPS device.”
The NAVIGON 2100 Max comes with a 4.3″ touch screen display, as well as text to speech. Like other NAVIGON products, the 2100 Max offers Reality View which provides more life-like pictures of major highway exits and interchanges.
NAVIGON is also now offering a feature called “DirectHelp” which is similar to safety features Garmin and TomTom have recently introduced. This feature will let you know your current location and provides fast access to emergency POIs such as hospitals.
Another new feature from NAVIGON is “FreshMaps” which will be an optional purchase. For $79, the cost of most individual map updates, you can purchase a “subscription” and receive up to 12 map updates in a three year period.
Other advanced features offered include a Lane Assistant, Route Planning with multi destination routing, and speed warnings.
