NAVIGON today rolled out one more GPS device aimed at raising the very entry level. The 2000S has just a 3.5-inch touchscreen but carries the same software features as larger models, including the real-time appearance of street signs, a lane assist mode and a special emergency mode that supplies both nearby locations and phone numbers without the step-by-step process.
The device relies on a built-in 2GB of storage for its map data but uses a microSD card slot to boost the device with extra information; NAVIGON doesn't say whether the device has internal traffic service support to take advantage of the company's lifetime traffic feature. Pricing is the central feature at $199 for the 2000S, which arrives in stores in October.
