Long a provider of in-dash GPS software, Navigon only recently moved into the portable GPS market and has done a remarkable job so far. The Navigon 5100 is a navigation-focused GPS, so it doesn’t include multimedia features such as a built-in MP3 player, but it does include turn-by-turn directions using spoken road names via text-to-speech, and free real-time traffic information via a built-in receiver for life. It’s subscription free meaning no setup hassles as the service is ready to go right out of the box. It’ll advise you on traffic flows and best alternate routes making your drive home from work stress free and, of course, much quicker.

The Lane Assistant feature tells you which lane you should be traveling in so that you never find yourself having to move over a few lanes in rush hour traffic, and Reality View gives you a 3D picture of the road including all the signs making the spoken directions even easier to follow.
Cooler still is the 5100’s use of Zagat ratings and branded icons, so it’ll even tell you the best place to stop for a pizza, beer, or bathroom break!
