  • Sounds like you have a software glitch with the 8100T. One or more of the config .xml's may be corrupted. I think you should contact tech support for a fix. Alex This is my 3rd 8100 unit, and 2nd SD card from support and they all did it. In GPS …

  • Looks like it would work no problem. I've confirmed the TMC is built into the unit and not the arm or the power cord of the 8100T. So any mount with any USB plug should work. The Proclip one looks very nice. The TMC antenna is in the USB power co…
  • Yeah, I do have the Home Depot POIs. I think it's because I got my 8100T in December that I have the latest software version. Alex Yeah and Navigon SWEARS that update doesn't exist. I had a hardware problem with mine and they replaced it with the …
  • happen to me, called support and had a new one in about a week I guess I will call, but I am not sure how far I will get. See this post for why: http://forums.gpsreview.net/discussion/10845/x/p1/
  • I knew about the 6.3mile thing and I also read how I could change it, I guess on a 200 mile trip up to a 20 mile detour might not be so bad, but I use it more locally. I just found it inconvenient for it to send me completely off my route to go to …
  • @ kpence73 - Which model Navigon do you have? I'm in the process of trying to answer your Search for POI question and it would help to know. 8100t
  • Just to let you know, the definition of city center in GPS maps is the location of the city hall or town manager, not necessarily the physical center of a city or town. Alex I hope it does not guide you to the Town Manager - ours is always runnin…
  • To Center City: New Destination -> Enter an Address (Street in a City) -> Put in a City or Zip Code -> Tap the Green checkmark -> In the bottom right hand of the part of the keyboard tap on Start Navigation. You do not need to enter an…

  • I just got a Navigon 2200t. I'm trying to figure out how to update the software and maps. The website says that mac users need to download new maps to the sd card. It appears that many of the Navigon devices come with an sd card. The 2200t does n…
  • Application updates (to address bugs and sometimes add new features) are free and offered periodically. Map updates are separate and not free. The FreshMaps package (up to 12 map updates over three years time for about $79) is the best map update pr…
  • US maps and software (6.5.0; 6.5.1, and 6.5.2a) with latest maps are less than 2gb. European maps are 2.06 gb before the MN software. You need a 4 GB card for full Europe updates (manual or fresh). You do not need more than 2GB for the North Americ…
  • If it's off by 1 hour, it's probably that US government (operate GPS system) hasn't update the time for your time zone. The GPS system doesn't know anything about time zones, it just works off of GMT, aka Zulu time. It is up to the software on each …

  • As a TT920 user I am sure the OP will be completely unsatisfied by your answers. It seems too much functionality will be missing. I know every GPS system is different in how it works, and I am finding that most of the same functionality is there, b…

  • Nothing right now, just got it today and I was trying to set up Fresh, but Fresh tells me there is no device connected, so I tried to access the SD card directly, but no go. Sometimes I can see the unit as letter E: but it tells me there is no "dis…
