Last November, we looked at the Navigon 2100 portable navigation device, and while we were impressed by the feature set and affordable price tag, its sluggish performance ultimately left a bad taste in our mouths.
However, we wiped the slate clean as we tested the Navigon 2100 Max, a slightly revamped and beefed up version of the 2100. In short, we liked the enhanced features, including the larger 4.3-inch touch screen and advanced lane guidance. Plus, the in-car GPS is a good value at $299. However, it still suffers from slightly sluggish performance and a kludgey user interface that can't quite compete with the likes of Garmin and TomTom.
