I am Still looking for a scanned copy of a Black Friday Staples Cash Receipt for a Navigon 2100. Someone please help! My wife tossed out my Box which contained the quick start, unscratched lifetime traffic coupon, and my receipt. Navigon said they would give me the lifetime codes if I fax them the receipt, since I did register my 2100. If you have a Black Friday Staples 2100 or 2100t receipt and are willing to scan it and send me a copy to Kondyke.Star@gmail.com it will so be appreciated.

I bought a Navigon 2100 on Black Friday, My wife tossed the box that included the lifetime traffic coupon and my receipt. It's that simple
popimp Posted - 26 déc. 2007 : 21:23:54
For what purpose?
Kondyke Posted - 26 déc. 2007 : 15:01:53
I will pay 20.00 via Paypal, for a clean scanned copy of a Black Friday Cash register receipt that you paid cash on a Navigon 2100 from either staples or Radio shack.

Still looking

My $0.02 - I picked up the 2100 at the Staples Black Friday sale this morning ($99 + tax), included is a card that allows you to activate the Free Lifetime traffic subscription. You get the product ID from the unit, scratch off the included card to get an activation code, go to the Navigon website and register your unit, then to the Activation website and (1) enter your product ID, (2) enter the unlock code on the back of the scratch off card. A new code is generated, enter it into the 2100 on the appropriate screen, and traffic info is now activated. Traffic data is supplied by Total Traffic Network, website advertises 68 major metropolitan areas currently supported. "Service is available for the life of the product as long as coverage exists".

Once activated, a "traffic" icon appears. Tapping it gives you a list of local areas where there may be "issues" (heavy traffic, road work, etc.) Not clear yet if this info is linked to the map display to warn you (there were no traffic issues in my immediate locale where I briefly tested it).

In addition to the Traffic service, a Zagat POI service is also available for $40 US. See the Navigon website for details.

First (very preliminary) impressions-

(1) Screen is somewhat crowded (but usable)if you activate all the display features (speed, ETA, distance, etc.).
(2) Voice is somewhat tinny but easy audible above road noise
(3) SD card appears to contain almost everything of interest, i.e
- 1 large .map file (1.42 Gbyte) in root, 48 CONUS states (no Alaska or Hawaii).
- MN6 folder with subfolders for languages, user settings, sound (3 TTS options), etc.
- POI folder (12.8 Mbyte)

I could not immediately identify a "skin" file.

I did not try various power/reset combos to see if I could get into the underlying operating system.

Further discussion of the unit is probably best reserved for this topic.

I just ordered a Navigon 2100 online at Best Buy for $149.99 which comes with free Traffic service. BB makes it a bit more clear as the free traffic is a separate item which is linked to the 2100. Only pisser is that the traffic activation card gets hit with same shipping cost as the GPS - for me that was $6.39. It will most likely show up in a #10 envelope they mailed for $.41!

Also ordered a Navigon 7100 from Costco - $419.00 after rebate and a Tom Tom GO720 for $349.99. Now I can sleep in on BF! My Xmas shopping done!

scottxray Posted - 22 nov. 2007 : 08:55:26
I found that Frys has the traffic add on for $49.99 today(for 2100 /2120 only)

So even if you miss the sale , it won't cost 99 to add it.

I think I'm goig to try another one
MPBsr25 Posted - 21 nov. 2007 : 03:03:21
I'll let you know sometime Friday afternoon. But even if I have to mail it in for an activation code and wait 6-8 weeks, not really a big deal.

Mind you, between 2 stores there was only 1 unit available. Both managers don't know what they're going to do Friday morning if people want to buy them.

Even though Staples will (might) have them Friday morning, the extra $50 that I'm paying is well worth the extra sleep and not fighting the crowds.



It will be interesting how RS handles the traffic service. Per my post above, OfficeDepot requires mailing in a form and then they mail the access number to you.

Try This...

Turns out you have to call Navigon customer service. 888 848 0701

They will email a pdf file with a rebate coupon. Fill that out, send it in with receipt + barcode, then ... they send you activation code ny snail mail within 6 to 8 weeks.

That stinks but I guess it's better than nothing. I will try out the unit and if I like it otherwise I guess I will go for it.

Note also that the Staples ad talks about the 2100 T and has a differnt SKU than the items in store....
Be prepared for refusal to Price match , due to "different item" claims.

I bought one at staples yesterday...tried it out...Seemed OKay at first...I did have trouble with the key board...(I have fat fingers) but it also is something unresponsive about the touch screen. Probably a slow processor.

today I went to the airport...so I tried it out...entering destination from POI was impossible....it would not find PDX in Portland.

I eventually zoomed out the map and went to the area and zoomed in to select it...then started to navigate to it after selecting the airport as destination. About 1/2 mile into the route the unit hiccupped, put me 2 miles away from my current position, and started giving me really bad directions.

I tried to restrart it and the screen locked up. When i took it back to staples to return 3 hours later, it was still locked up.

We used a paper clip to reset it at the store..it recovered then. I returned it anyway. I didn't have one in the car and a ball point tip was too large.

Another site had a thread that mentioned that all the units shipped to Staples had defective SD cards and Navigon would overnnight one to you to replace it..

I don't think I'll go for one of these....I'll try to get a 320 at RS.

Box said traffic service was an additional cost item. They put it through their system and no coupon popped out of the cash register.

After checking with a bunch of people including the manager on duty, nobody knew anything about the traffic service. I bought it anyway since I can return within 14 days and got the business card of the assistant manager and will check back tomorrow.

<snip>



The 11/18 ad states "Lifetime subscription to traffic reports & updates Redeemable by mail". My assumption would be that there was some sort of paperwork you need to submit to get the actual activation card. The 2100 manual states the following:

Activating an Optional Accessory Service

At the retail outlet where NAVIGON 2100 devices are sold:
1. Purchase an Accessory card for each service you want. On the Accessory card is the 15 character activation key, three blocks of five characters separated by hyphens. This key is used to obtain a device unlock code. (Same process for traffic or Zagat)

So, at the store level they should be stocking this item as a seperate stock item. It shows up in the Office/TechDepot catalog as

ACTIVATION SERVICE

Part# S6717895 | Mfr# 10000250 at a cost of $101.95 (higher than list of $99.99)

I've been looking at this unit, but reading some bad reviews.

How about doing a good test over the next few days and let us know how it works?

Thanks

I registered on the navigon site and started to register the unit but their activation page requires a number from a card that I guess you get when you buy the service. So I stopped and will wait until tomorrow.

This may happen at Staples and RadioShack so if anyone is able to bet the traffic service, please post here and I will post my experiences tomorrow.

BE CAREFUL. There is a lot of Bogus info on Navigon units. This does NOT have free traffic. YOu must pay $100 more.
