Navigon is a german company which was founded in 1991. It was the industry's first company that introduced a Navigation System for Pocket PC.
TomTom (netherlands) was always their biggest rival.
Navigon entered the US market in 2007.
They offer really good GPS and have a Looot experience.

May be this is interesting for us riders...

Adding to an old thread...

I have a refurb Navigon 2100 that I got cheap from the internet. I LOVE it on the bike. It's actually been less trouble than my TomTom that I use in the car. The screen is smaller but I will sacrifice for the low cost. It does a great job for what I do and I have ZERO complaints other than the satellite signal used to take forever to get. I did a free update from the website and now it's fine. My TomTom just had to be completely reset and nearly sent in because it lost GPS signal for 3 days! I read up on the web and I guess it's a pretty common problem with them. Luckily, I was able to get one of the solutions to work because if it didn't, it sounds like I was just SOL. The Navigon has most of the features that my TomTom XL has and was much cheaper. The maps are a little dated but I live with it. Since it was so cheap, I won't feel bad if it gets knocked off the bike and skids down the freeway. I've been using it for about 9 months.

Navigon 7200

Did someone use a Navigon 7xxx on a bike?
I have seen some slick auqboxes with RAM mount, they make it real cool and resistant to the elements.
Is it possible to navigate trails with that GPS?

For the last two and a half years I used a Navigon that was so old it still said Transonic on it. It was a close out in 07. I bought a newer one, 2100 or 2310, its in the crate with the motorcycle stuff to US, but the point is I have used them all over Europe and love them. My only question is, do they accept GPX files? I am hoping that I don't have to buy another GPS. I found a waterproof mount for them also that mounts to the handle bars and is lockable with a small padlock. They web site is www.mountguys.com.
