UPDATED BY GPSPASSION 20090128 - New Q1/2009 Freshmaps available, details in this topic.
UPDATED BY GPSPASSION 20081105 - As expected the new Navigon Q4/2008 Maps (Navteq Q2/2008) maps are now available via the FreshMaps program as well as a free MN|7 update for the 2100max and 2120max models. A good surprise since software upgrades are far and between on GPS systems. Not such a good surprise is TMC Traffic information that has stopped working properly with the Q4/2008 maps as discussed in this topic in detail.
As a side-note, if you don't have your Navigon Fresh subscrition yet, you can get it here for a low $25 vs the $79 MSRP.
UPDATED BY GPSPASSION 20080801 - The Navigon FreshMaps program has now launched in the US, just in time to meet the July 31st deadline for the release of Q3/2008 FreshMaps that are in fact Navteq Q1/2008 maps. Still these are the most up to date maps available on a GPS system at this point, Garmin's "2009 maps" being Navteq 2007 based, and represents a little revolution in the world of GPS where getting map updates has always been problematic. The fact that Navigon are only asking $79 (street price : $59) for 3 years and 12 map updates makes it a deal that's difficult to pass on. Forum member aljacket has downloaded the maps and has started sharing his thoughts on page 3.
Navigon is going to a subscription model for map updates. It actually looks like one heck of a deal to me.
Basically you pay $79 and you get 12 map downloads over a 3 year period. They say they will release a map update whenever navteq does an update. That's less then $7 per map update if you download them all.
"NAVIGON Unveils Fresh Approach to Map Updates - NAVIGON's FreshMaps provides users with three years of quality map updates
CHICAGO, March 4, 2008 – NAVIGON, the fastest growing brand in GPS navigation in North America, today announced a bold solution to a conundrum that is as old as the consumer GPS category itself: how to provide consumers regular, easy access to quality map updates.
NAVIGON's convincing response to the dilemma is FreshMaps, a new service that ensures NAVIGON GPS devices stay accurate and viable over the long haul by allowing users to download up to 12 map updates in three years. NAVIGON FreshMaps is available for all NAVIGON 7100, 5100, and 2100/2120 series devices and can be purchased online and at major North American retail outlets for $79.99 (MSRP)... continues here on the Navigon site.
They have also announced a new 2100 model called the 2100 max, see this topic (ed)

Maybe, but I still downloaded the latest maps from Fresh a couple months ago, and can still log into the Navigon site, but the Navigon site no longer lists my devices with Fresh subscriptions, which is why I cannot do a zip download.
||Posted - 05 nov. 2012 : 10:26:31
I thought they stop stop supporting Navigon this past summer?
||Posted - 05 nov. 2012 : 05:32:40
I am using the older version, specifically 1.4.7.
||Posted - 05 nov. 2012 : 02:31:41
Well there is a problem, unless I am just missing something. I am able to launch fresh and login, but when I try to select my device, I get a message that indicates something to the effect that my software is not currently supported.
Are you using the older version of fresh, or a newer version where you must create a new account with garmin?
||Posted - 04 nov. 2012 : 20:52:27
I still cannot get the updates from the website, but Fresh works, and I save the zip that is temporarily downloaded as a backup.
If you have fresh, try using the website as that should include all the software along with the maps which you will need if you wiped your flash.

elkinm, were you ever able to find a zip file of the last update you were able to download?
I have a 8100T that kept locking up on me this past week. So I thought I would try refreshing the card, but find I did not keep the last file I downloaded.
I would appreciate any help you might be able to provide.

Big waste of time, it is no deal unless you send your old unit back and pay the postage
||Posted - 04 juin 2012 : 01:14:21
Thanks for that info... I'll try calling them to see what they will do for a 5100 exchange.

They sent me a E-Mail

you with this. Over the past year, Navigon has been acquired by Garmin

Hmmm.. I have an old Navigon 5100. I wonder what they would charge me for an uypgrade of some sort for that unit ?
How did you learn of the upgrade possibility from Garmin ?

Anyone get the E-Mail from Garmin?

Navigon Freshmaps Q1/2012 is out.
||Posted - 05 avr. 2012 : 16:37:33
Anyone tried to active a new Freshmap recently? Mine is going to end very soon.
||Posted - 19 févr. 2012 : 09:10:33
Just downloaded the Q4-2011 maps form FreshMaps. I still cannot get the standalone zip from the site so I did it with the app.
This map seems to induce all of North America as the previous had only the 48 states.
Also, this map changed how street names are displayed. Capital first letter then lower case. This also has a script which converts the routes and favorites to the new name format.
It was interesting to see the difference. Will see if I like it more on the road.
