Navigon intros two GPS units for CeBIT

Navigon 5100 and 7100

Contributing its own share to GPS-related announcements in Germany, Navigon today introduced a pair of mapping units. The Navigon 5100 and 7100 together introduce what the firm calls "reality view" navigation: while many GPS units have 3D modes for viewing the road from the driver's perspective, the new units display signposts and other navigation markers in a more realistic way that keeps the driver aware of what lane changes to make and speed limits to follow. Both models also have free traffic reports and voice activated commands.

Size is the primary factor in the main versions, Navigon says: the 7100 incorporates a 4.3-inch widescreen, while the 5100 ships in a more portable 3.5-inch form. The two will be ready first for Europe in the summer at prices of 400 and 500 Euros ($529 and $662) for the 5110 and 7110 models with continent-wide maps, with region-only 5100 and 7100 versions selling for 50 Euros ($66) less each. A US release is pending but is unannounced. [via SlashGear]
