Navigon Sat Nav Launched

Navigon_Reality_ViewNavigon have launched a new range of Sat Nav units which have a number of new features. The first, pictured above, is called Reality View. What Reality View does is show a 3D image of complex road junctions. If you are a regular user of sat nav you will have arrived at a complex junction and not been able to tell which turning to take as it isn’t always clear on the sat nav screen. By using a 3D representation it makes it far easier to visualise which is the correct junction to turn off on to.

Text to Speech is also a feature of the 2100 and 2120 Navigons which can speak out street names to you further assisting your navigation by helping you to keep your eyes on the road. Turn by turn instructions are spoken to you as you drive along your route.

Another feature of this device is FreshMaps which keeps your map up to date. 12 map updates over 3 years are supplied keeping map data as new as possible for the life of your Navigon. POI updates can also be downloaded to the device so you always have the latest data to hand when you need it.

The Navigon has a 4.3″ touch screen with an anti-glare coating over it making this sat nav look rather tasty. The Navigon will set you back $299 CAD for the 2100 series which contains maps of the US. The 2120 contains maps of Canada also and costs $329 CAD.
