UPDATED 20081115 - The Navigon series 8 was released in Europe under the 8110T name in the spring and is finally making it to the US as the 8100T in late 2008.

It stands out from the other GPS systems with :
1. "Panorama View" that shows the actual terrain, impressive in hilly areas and in the mountains !
2. Large 4.8" screen
3. Active car holder with "pole" mount
4. FreshMaps (quarterly map updated) subscription included



With a succesful year under its belt in the US with the launch of the 5100, 7100 but mostly the 2100, the "black friday" star, Navigon is working on Series 8 with the 8110 powered by MN|7.

The upcoming 8110 is a stylish affair with its brushed metal finish and large 4.8" screen, but also a powerful one with 128Mb of RAM and a graphics coprocessor on board. MN|7 has been optimized to offer a faster response time and the "extended lanes" feature has been given more space for improved visibility. No firm relase date yet, but the upcoming 3GSM and Cebit shows sould provide more information.

Questions, comments?

Well it looks like they've add media playback.

Please find out if upgrades will be available to MN7 for current 21/51/71xx owners. Cost (if applicable)?

Thanks,
Justin

I really like how the device shows which land to be in. Like seeing the posted speed limit too.

I'd like to know how this device compares to the Garmin Nuvi line (for the U.S.). The Navigon UI looks better to me than Garmin. But not sure about route calculations and POI.

Unless they have fixed the routing bug from the 21/51/71xx line, then that's a drawback.

As for the other things, Reality view is reported to BITE! but other then that, the Navigon really competes, it's very cool without RV if you can get past the horrible routing! I wish I had kept my 2100 and waited for the fix [which hasn't arrived AFIK]

GPS history: Garmin eMap + eMap [both broke] >> Magellan MAP410 > Garmin GPS'V' +
JensenNVX200 > Garmin Nuvi200 > Navigon 2100 > MIO C230 > Navigon7100!
Current GPSs: Garmin GPS'V' and Navigon7100!
Jensen & Mio use TA maps which suck in AL. Navigon is only good AIO with NavTeq

Well, since CeBIT is not until March 4-9 in Hanover, Germany we'll have some time to speculate. Tech website SlashGear is saying that the 8110 will sadly be a Europe only model. But if you look closely at their naming conventions, Navigon's US models end in "00" rather than "10" (as in europe). I suspect that they are therefore correct and that any "8" series US model would be named the 8100.

Such trifles aside, I am interested in learning more about the enhancements to be introduced in MN|7. Better and quicker routing? More configuration options? Perhaps a set-up wizard that personalizes the unit based on your answers to a series of questions.

For the hardware, a processor running at 533 MHz, a graphic accelerator, and 128 MB of memory will do their part to speed things up. The european version's MSRP is 499 euros. I wonder what a US version's street price will be?

At a straight conversation of 499.EUR to 727.USD Im glad I paid $99.bucks for a 2100 and waiting for the upgrade at the end of the 1st quarter. If I want to watch movies & listen to music I will buy the specific device to do so. I Myself would never ever pay that much for a GPS, WHY, in world would you. And I own 4 of them, by different companys.

First, European prices include a 20% VAT.
Second, there is always a difference between MSRP ($299.00) and street price ($99.00) if you look hard enough and are patient... I see you did both.
Finally, everyone needs to do their own cost benefit analysis based on the best price found. I may yet buy a 2100.

As I said, I wonder what a US version's street price will be?

[QUOTE SNIPPED]

Exactly. I got a three 2100Ts for $99, a 5100 for $149 (radio shack) and ultimately my 7100 cost $300 with a 4gb card.

I lived in Europe half my life and retail there is different (although changing). Most of Europe doesn't see the same kind of price cutting we see. Navigon's VP said said in press reports in October that they were going to come in at $99 with a unit for last black fiday, I just think we were all suprised to see the traffic included when they did.

I would say discounted street on the 8100 will be $400 one month after release, rise a bit and then fall again. It will depend on Garmins 7xx structure once that line roles out fully.

In action:

I can't read German, but others might be able to. Menu navigation looks significantly faster.

Interesting, do you have the link to the page on the ppc-welt site where this has been posted, or is it a hidden link ?

There are some things that are not analogous between US and Euro models
a) there are a couple of versions of TMC in Europe. In the US we don't
have TMC "pro" so the 8100 won't have that as an added feature over
US 51/7100's
b) we already have TTS on 5100 and 7100 (the Europe versions don't)
so that is not an upgrade on our end.

Better lane assist graphics look good, especially since a lot of people prefer that to reality view anyway.
Speculation is that lane assist pro and RV pro also increase the number of junctions covered. That is reasonable since th third party company that provided the data has probably not been asleep for a year. On LA pro, I know they "now keep to the right now keep to the left" was a problem they are probably addressing with an extended lane assist graphic.

I was also stunned and the answer I got on downloading contacts via
bluetooth on my 7100 when Navigon said no one needs that. They had not
even considered that this was not just about ease of telephone dialing
contacts people navigate to contacts but for ease of navigating *to* contacts. That is a really useful addition.

I do wonder if they will put pio warner or pio warner "lite" on the US version since they are not adding TTS (all their US version already have it) and perhaps not or TMC Pro.

@ gpspassion,
Are you heading to CeBIT? If so, could you ask the Navigon representatives the questions posed here? Also, what's the 9312? And 4513?

Thanks,
Justin

No idea. If you go to this link (Navigon's Website):

http://www.navigon.com/site/uk/en/cebit08

and click on "Sweepstake", there is a reference to these units (All of which evidently have a 4.8" screen).

Got it http://www.navigon.com/site/int/en/cebit08#sweepstake
Actually I think the other two units don't exist ;-)
