NAVIGON preps 7200T with landmark 3D maps

updated 12:05 pm EDT, Tue August 26, 2008


NAVIGON readied itself for the fall today by launching a replacement for its highest-end GPS unit. The 7200T brings both a new interface that the company claims is the fastest for entering a destination but also adds a detailed 3D view where landmarks are represented as true objects. The addition gives drivers a quicker way to recognize stops or turning points without reading street names or waiting for voiced directions.

The mapping device also continues to visualize lane changes and street signs while supporting all the other features from existing NAVIGON units. Users can set destinations through voice, have street names read back in voice guidance mode and rely on the 7200T as a speakerphone through Bluetooth. The T label points to the new unit as supporting NAVIGON's free lifetime traffic warning service.

Deliveries start in October, when the 7200T will go on sale for $449; maps for North America are included, while a map pack update plan is available for $80 that supplies as many as a dozen map updates over the course of three years.
