Navigon 5100 max coming?

A new Navigon portable GPS system is expected to come to market in the next few weeks, as it has been spotted undergoing testing at the FCC on Wednesday. The new unit, to be dubbed the Navigon 5100 max, is expected to include Bluetooth connectivity, a 4.3-inch screen and text-to-speech capability. A lifetime traffic update service is also to be part of the feature-set, along with Zagat ratings for restaurants stored in the point-of-interest database.

With the 5100 max, Navigon seems to be taking the approach of rivals Garmin and Magellan, which offer many models with various feature-sets and at multiple price-points. If the 5100 max hits store shelves this fall, it would be the fourth Navigon unit to do so. Pricing is not known, though it should be higher than the $329 asked for the Navigon 5100.
