The Navigon 2100 max is being announced at CeBIT today. This update of the the Navigon 2100 offers a wider 4.3' screen, and DirectHelpTM, seen above, which pinpoints the user’s location and that of emergency services. Like the 2100, the 'max' includes Reality ViewTM at complex interchanges, text-to-speech, and multi-destination routing. The 2100 max will include maps of the continental U.S. and will retail for $299. The 2120 max will be available in Canada for $329 CAD and will feature both U.S. and Canadian maps. The units are expected to hit store shelves in late March or early April.

Navigon is also announcing FreshMaps, which allows users to download up to 12 NAVTEQ-based map updates in three years. FreshMaps will cost $79.99 and will be available for all Navigon 2100, 5100 and 7100 series models as of April 2008.

This is an innovative approach to providing map updates and I commend Navigon for making it easier to keep the maps on their devices current. We’re also beginning to see an interesting business strategy that allows Navigon to sell units at a relatively low cost but offer several attractive add-ons. Note that the following are available for the 2100 series:

Update
  • FreshMaps – $79.99
  • Lifetime traffic $99.99
  • Zagat ratings and reviews – $39.99

Hello all, I am new here on this forum but I am in no way a GPS novice.
I have a Garmin Nuvi 370 as my main GPS unit and I purchased a Navigon 2100 for my wife as a gift.
I have a questions about the POI's on the Navigon or lack of them.
Here is what I noticed. I live in the USA, North East and when traveling in CT I searched for Costco or Bj's wholesale club and the navigon did not show me any results. I even want as far as to enter the exact town in CT where the store was located but it still did not find it in the database.
Is this a common thing with Navigon that POI's such as retail stores are not listed in it's database? Just for kicks I also searched for Walmart and also got back no info.
Now to complicate matters I even picked up the Navigon 7100 maps from a ebay vendor, loaded these onto a memory card and use those in the 2100 and same results no costco, bj's or walmart. Is this normal?
My garmin finds all of the stores without a pause.
Strange that the navigon 7100 maps would not have this info.
Anyone have similar issues with their navigon gps?
Thanks. Doug

  • Checkout the How Many POIs paragraph in that link.
  • Thank you for your reply and link to the other forum post. I am a little disappointed that even after upgrading the maps on my 2100 with the 7100 series maps that even large retail stores are not listed. I can see not having all the mom and pop pizza shops but not showing large big box retailers seems like a oversight.
    Thanks. Doug
  • Understand your dissapointment. But with garmin you get no lifetime traffic. Personally I know where the big box stores are locally and have little need to find one when traveling. Traffic and cost issues made the navigon my preferred gps. I have no experience with garmin but both lowrance and navigon customer support is outstanding.

    Maybe. Did you select the categories of the POI you wanted to be displayed? You may have these turned off. I keep most of the categories turned off until I need to find them.
  • I have noticed that some chains like Wall Mart are not there and yet some smaller stores are there. I wonder if they need a license to list chains?
    The Garmin database is bigger, but it also lacks some things that the Navigon has. Both are bad with POIs while en-route.
    Navigon allows a full POI search, but you still need a passenger to do it.
    The 1.2 update should offer more POIs and possibly a way to add new ones, but I don't expect too much.

    Hi Doug,
    How did you get the 7100 POI's on your 2100? I just purchased the 2100 Max and am definitely interested as I realized this shortcoming before purchase. I've heard you can do it but don't have information on the specifics.
    Thanks in advance for any help.

  • Motoradder, Yeah I turned on all the POI's on the unit. Even after the map updates I still do not get the bigger retailers.
    Robert, I Got the new 7100 series maps on a SD card. Here's what I did : copied the entire contents of the 2100 card to desktop , did the same on the 7100 card . Created a new folder on desktop , dragged & dropped the MN6 (latest update files downloaded from Navigon's site) and the Autorunce from the 2100 folder , then dragged & dropped the RealityView , POI , Alaska map , Hawaii map , Puerto Rico map & US and Canada maps from the 7100 folder . Copied this new folder to a 2 GB SD card , inserted it in the unit & turned it on ...now I got a 2100 body with a 7100 maps . Took it for a spin , worked beautifully.

  • Robert, I Got the new 7100 series maps on a SD card. .
    Doug
    This might be a silly question, but how did you get the 7100 maps on SD card? was that a purchase @ navigon.com?
    I just got my 2100 max yesterday and so far, I'm pretty pleased with it - the only drawback so far are the number of POI. I appreciate your help. :)
    Robert
    p.s. I did check on the navigon site and I didn't find a place for this type of download/purchase.
  • Robert, I purchased the maps from a vendor on ebay. The vendor had them on a sd card and the original CD.
    I'm not sure how legal this is but the CD was an original since it looks like the seller was selling all the parts of his old 7100 series gps.
    Doug
  • Thanks for the info Doug... I'll take a look myself. I'm also looking into some software called POIWarner that apparently loads onto the PND and you can add/manipulate POI wiht that tool. At this moment however, I am unable to get the Microsoft Active Sync to recognize my 2100 max.
    thanks again for the help. Do you have the 2100 or the 2100 max btw?
  • Using a new backup SD card with 7100 maps and information, you'll need:
    System files from your 2100's MN6 folder:
    BinaryDialogFilenames.xml
    HardwareLayer.dll
    MN6ResourcesBinary.res
    MN6.exe
    Will need TMCIF.dll if you have traffic activated.
    User data and settings:
    The following files and folders will need to be copied from your original MN6 folder and placed into the new MN6 folder:
    − NaviLib.ini
    − SettingsUserSettings.xml
    − SettingsUserData.xml
    − SettingsUserSettingsOrientation.xml
    − SettingsUserSettingsLanguage.xml
    − SettingsRecent.storage
    − SettingsFavorites.storage
    − SettingsRoutes folder
    − SettingsSpeech Recognition folder (7100 products only)
    − LogBook folder
    Map files are in the root directory of your GPS device.
