Navigate in Style with NAVIGON 7100 and 5100


Now that it’s summer, it’s time to hop in the family station wagon and head off on a road trip to parts unknown. Navigon has announced a new pair of personal navigation devices that “will help busy consumers reduce stress and get wherever they need to go more efficiently.”

The more entry-level Navigon 5100 (the one on the right) has been designed with the active lifestyle in mind. They’ve made it fairly compact at 4.2 x 3.3 x 0.9 inches, and it’s pretty light too at just 6.35 grams. To be taken just about everywhere by everyone, the chrome-shelled Navigon 5100 is equipped with text-to-speech, real-time traffic, a lane assistant that directs drivers to the optimal lane, and a 3D virtual reality view.

The Navigon 7100 personal navigation device (left and center) is the company’s flagship. Like the 5100, it’s also got text-to-speech, subscription-free real-time traffic, Reality View, and Lane Assistant, but it adds a 4.3-inch color touchscreen and Bluetooth functionality to the mix too.

The Navigon 5100 and the Navigon 7100 will sell for $499 and $649, respectively. Both units should be available later this month.
