NAVIGON 2100 max and 2120 max Personal Navigation Systems Announced

NAVIGON’s new GPS devices boast high-end features at a friendly price

NAVIGON, the fastest growing brand in GPS navigation, today unveiled the NAVIGON 2100 max and NAVIGON 2120 max personal navigation devices (PNDs) at CeBIT 2008, the world’s most comprehensive showcase of digital technology. The North American products earn their name by incorporating ‘wow’ features found only on high-end devices. They are the latest additions to NAVIGON’s award-winning and successful 2100 series line.

Features include a widescreen 4.3 format, spoken driving directions via text to speech, and NAVIGON’s exclusive Reality View™, which provides 3D guidance when approaching highway interchanges. Also new is DirectHelp™, a feature that pinpoints a user’s location and provides instant links to nearby services such as hospitals, pharmacies, and roadside assistance.

Significantly, the 2100 max series devices launch in concert with NAVIGON’s groundbreaking FreshMaps service. FreshMaps provides up to 12 map and POI updates in three years. Updates have been field-tested and validated by NAVTEQ, the leading digital map provider. An industry first, FreshMaps ensures data accuracy with regular access to up-to-date, field-verified map data and point of interest content. The updates are available online through a simple download process.

The NAVIGON 2100 max ships with maps of the continental U.S. while the NAVIGON 2120 max features maps of the U.S. and Canada. The standard NAVIGON 2100 max device sells online and in stores for $299 (MSRP). The 2120 max is limited to distribution in Canada and sells for $329 CAD.

“NAVIGON is building on the same product strategy that drove our success last year. We are committed to providing GPS systems with features that are relevant to the navigation experience,” said Andreas Hecht, NAVIGON’s President for the Americas. “We believe we’ve raised the bar with a competitively priced, feature-packed GPS device.”
