Navigon Unit Software Update - Now Available


NavigonLogo.gifNavigon has released their software update for the 2100, 5100, and 7100 units. I will be loading the update soon, but thought I would pass this along. Should fix some of the complaints on the text to speech vice guidance that people had where the unit would skip the street name if the turn was imminent. I'll let you know what I think in a while. In the meantime, leave a comment if you've done the software update and tell us what you think.

From the Navigon Website:

Your Free Software Update Release 1.1

NAVIGON issues software release updates for existing GPS products to improve upon system performance, efficiencies, and the overall user experience. The following software release, Software Update 1.1, delivers several improvements to North American NAVIGON GPS Navigators, the NAVIGON 7100, NAVIGON 5100 and NAVIGON 2100/2120 devices, chief among them are:

* Better and easier to use Point-of-Interest searches

* Improved voice guidance and text-to-speech functions

* Enhanced user interface

* Improved Bluetooth® stability (7100 only)

Thanks, you're right. But now TeleAtlas with Tomtom(730) has them too! If you travel in congested areas these reality views are the bomb!

Hey Vic, Navigon uses Navteq maps, not Teleatlas as you stated.

I did the upgrade a few weeks ago and it went well, but the POI search improvement was disappointing. You still can't search for a POI without being in that folder category. And the improved u-turn I can't see any differences.

However street names and their voice output is better.

Also I believe there are more reality views included, witch is TeleAtlas's best feature!
