Navigon introduced a pair of new entry-level priced GPS devices this week called the 2100 Max and 2120 Max. Both units share the same features except the 2120 includes U.S. and Canadian maps. The 2120 is only available in Canada at $329 CAD. The 2100 is available in the U.S. only and features only U.S. maps for $299.

Both machines use the same 4.3-inch touchscreen and offer text-to-speech driving directions. Navigon’s RealityView is also included providing a photo-realistic view of complex highway interchanges and Lane Assistant helps drivers get into the correct lane. One key feature for the devices is compatibility with Navigon’s FreshMaps service. The service provides up to 12 map and POI updates over a three year period.
"Providing consumers with affordable products, without sacrificing features that play a significant role in their navigation experience, is our top focus when bringing new products to market," said Andreas Hecht, NAVIGON's president for the Americas. "The success of the NAVIGON 2100 unit, which was the second best selling PND in February, proves that it is possible to incorporate traditional high-end features, such as text-to-speech, into an affordable device that appeals to a broad range of consumers. With the NAVIGON 2100 max, we are building on this philosophy by incorporating more features, such as a widescreen and DirectHelp, while not compromising the affordability of the product."
