Electronista: Navigon announced the release of the 5100 max personal navigation devices, spotted earlier this month at the FCC, along with the 2090S.Both units sport Navigon’s newest software that can generate routes quicker and makes entering information faster and easier thanks to the company’s SmartSpeller software.
The 5100 max uses a 4.3-inch touchscreen display with a 16:9 aspect ratio that will display real-time traffic updates. Buyers get these updates for the life of the unit without having to pay any additional subscription fees or having to buy additional hardware.
The 5100 max also includes a Bluetooth module, allowing for hands-free talk when using compatible cell phones. Contacts are synced wirelessly and can be dialed with one touch from the touchscreen interface.
The Navigon 2090S has a 3.5-inch touchscreen display and shares many of the same features with the 5100 max. Both include Navigon FreshMaps, a service that offers as many as eight quarterly map software updates over two years.
