Navigon announces Rand McNally-powered 4300T max and 7300T nav units, less awesome 3300 max

Looks like Navigon's new relationship with Rand McNally is starting to bear fruit -- the company just announced two new GPS units preloaded with McNally Scenic Routes. Both the 4300T max and the 7300T have over 250 pre-programmed routes from Rand McNally's Best of the Road series, sorted into categories like "weekend getaways" and "regional trips." The $279 4300 max (pictured) is the more basic of the two, featuring a 4.3-inch 16:9 touchscreen display, 2GB of storage with microSD expansion, Bluetooth, free traffic updates, and the new MyRoutes personalized routing system, while the $399 7300T repackages all that into a slicker "frameless" case and adds in voice-enabled address entry and control. Navigon will only say Q2 for the 7300T, but the 4300T max is due to arrive on March 9 along with the identical but stripped-down 3300, which drops Bluetooth, traffic, and Rand McNally content to get the price down to $199. Check a pic of the 7300T

Interesting, thanks for sharing.

I wonder how they have implemented these scenic routes though, a series of trips with waypoints I suppose, not sure the current "trip planner" is up to that type of use, maybe it's been modified.

The MyRoutes that shows several possibles routes before you head out is interesting on paper, but the Mio C620 had it too and it didn't turn out to be very useful, with only the "fastest route" generally being of interest, this is what it looks like :



The new "TMC Routing Info" looks interesting too as it shows a "before" and "after", it will only work as well as the quality of the traffic data permits though.



"Clever Parking" won't find free parking spots near your destination as that would require some type of internet connection...it's just an automatic parking search when you reach your destination.

All the new features are listed here : http://www.navigon.com/site/int/en/cebit09#features

The good news is that an update will be made available for the 7210 to update it to the level of the 7310 :

To mark the availability of the NAVIGON 7310 in May you will be able to download our software update and extend the functionality of your NAVIGON 7210 with all the new features of the NAVIGON 7310!

I see that one will be able to add additional features of the new 7310 to the older 7210. That is great. I have just purchase a new 8100T for use in the US. I sure hope those new features be availble for the top of the line 8100T either free or for purchase in the near future? I'd hope they do not leave out the people who paid top dollar for your greatest device to be over taken by the lower model 7210. I'm particularly interested in City View 3D, NAVIGON MyRoutes, and Clever Parking. I hope I didn't make a mistake by purchasing an 8100T over a 7210.

Update : I talked with Navigon tech support and he said that they are planning on releasing MyRoutes later to the 8100T users. He did not know about being free or as a paid upgrade. He also did not know of 3D landmark view (3D buildings) would be added, nore any other feature like parking assist, or POI click, etc.

Good point, but that was on the X970T originally, and can't remember if it really worked though or if that feature made it to the X980T? In any case it didn't save them...

I just emailed Navigon about this and asked whether "QTR 2 2009" meant June 30th or earlier, and they wrote back April for the 7300T availability (which could still mean Apr 30th).

Yeah, I emailed them, also. They told me the same thing about "QTR 2 2009". Navigon is slick...they are very tight-lipped and won't reveal anything except "QTR 02, 2009". Not another word from them. They're like all the others. Create hype and suspense and make people wonder when. Their plan seems to be working, though.

I had read this e-mail reply from Navigon about upgrading the 7210t to a 7310t.

quote:
We do not have the exact date, when the upgrade will come out. But you will have the possibility sometime in may, to upgrade your 7210 to the 7310, you will receive exactly the same features.

The upgrade will not be for free. We do not know the exact price at the moment, but whenever it will be available, you will receive the information by e-mail


If they do this with the 7200t also, would it be better to buy a 7200t and pay to upgrade it to be like a 7300t or just buy the 7300t? I suppose it kinda depends on how much it would cost to upgrade a 7200t.

I read somewhere that the Navigon 4300T is in stock in some stores. But after researching, there are none to be found. Hopefully the 7300T will be out sometime in May. Reviews ought to trickle in a few weeks.

Navigon has done a marvelous PR job on these units! They are silent on store arrival details. If anyone hears anything to the contrary, please post here.

Actually it looks like none of these models will see the light of day in the US as Navigon USA is essentially closing down, except to support existing models, more details here : http://www.gpspassion.com/forumsen/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=125432

I see that Navigon is offering a software upgrade to the 7210 to make it a 7310. I wonder if you were to purchase this and install it on a 7200 if it would work? Aren't they essentially the same hardware and OS? Here is the link: http://www.navigon.com/site/uk/en/maps_services/products/14/content/1343

Might work, problem is that I'm not sure you'll be able to download it via Navigon Fresh. In Europe the latest v1.60 version give you the option to buy the upgrade.

It appeared that you could purchase and download the update from their UK site. You just need to create an account like you would here in the U.S. I suppose the big question would be if you could then use freshmaps to update your maps for the U.S., and if they are compatible with the new program.
