Live services, voice control and cities completely in 3D: The NAVIGON 70 premium live for whopping 350 euros is a real jack-of-all-trades Navi.
- NAVIGON 70 premium live
- Data sheet
NAVIGON 70 premium live is a good sounding name that committed the novice almost to the success, especially as so far all top models of the Wurzburg Navi forge could secure one of the top five in the connect list themselves. The ingredients for NAVIGON – recipe for success: an impeccable guidance, well timed voice prompts as well as all kinds of light and vision offerings.
And this time the characters seem okay to stand, at least when you look at the list of equipment of the 70 premium live: dynamic Lane, 3D-Panoramaansicht, 3D, landmark view 3D – and the whole comfort package with Internet-based Live services comes as icing on the cake. Thus receives premium live traffic data that 70 more accurately than TMC and TMC Pro, targets can be entered easily via Google, you can get up-to-date weather data or gasoline prices. The services are free of charge for the first 15 months, then apply 49.95 euro per year.
NAVIGON-typically the target input on the large 5-inch touch screen is very quickly. At an early stage, appropriate suggestions in the site selection are displayed. Alternatively, the objectives can be activated with a little exercise without any problems about the voice control. And also the input of destination via Google works extremely easy. Everything seems to be perfect.
But suddenly the first shock follows: to start the route calculation goes by considerably more than a minute (!) on a route from Hamburg to Stuttgart, before slowly builds up the pretty map before our eyes. Very surprised. So again from scratch: cancel the route guidance. Enter the target again. Wait. And it is confirmed: also in the second calculation can be 70 premium live with enabled MyRoutes so much time that it believes the software had crashed. Just as we it finally appears the map view in order to reset the disk want to depend on.
Long wait to route
The announcement: MyRoutes calculates three different routes which can ever take something with a longer distance. Then apply it, select the appropriate version; usually, the variant “MyRoutes” awarded as the best turns out to. Congestion on the route, there are several alternatives are calculated what also lasts. Again, the user between two routes must choose again as time goes by. Apart from our test device at this point more accepted no commands via the touch screen. You have to wait until the map has built up completely after about 30 seconds. It could go but a little part of the jigsaw. In times of intelligent navigation systems with Internet access not only the routing, but also target input and route calculation should so intelligent and quickly solved be that they don’t annoy the driver and make him the one or other decision.
Although Live services, MyRoutes and the elaborate map display noticeably on the resources of the NAVIGON gnaw 70 premium live, the quality of the calculated route is impeccable: both urban and interurban routes all of the NAVIGON made virtually no mistakes. Only once it forgot to say a descent back to Stuttgart city centre. Given the total fully convincing performance one forgive these errors then but but but like the NAVIGON.
3D – ole!
In the map view premium live flowers on the NAVIGON 70 fully. Especially in big cities – in our case the Swabian metropolis of Stuttgart – has the comfort Navi a real treat at hand: all buildings are fully three-dimensional represented. The Street between the buildings is so clearly divided, that you can see the different roadways. The building will be transparent for the purpose of clarity in a drive-by, the road loses although behind curves and bends, that interferes with the orientation but no further.
Except with this gimmick, premium live waiting the NAVIGON 70 with all currently available guidance: include signposts, lane Assistant, detailed views of motorway interchanges and the very useful tunnel Wizard, which displays not only the remaining length of the tunnel and fork in the tube to the driver, but also in time visually informed of fork in the tunnel. The speech also cut with good timing, the turn by turn be said safely and in a timely manner including street names via text to speech.
Stuffers, travel information depending if also somewhat bumpy – from the Merian travel guide; Unfortunately, the interesting history lesson for each direction instruction is interrupted and starts anew. There, it may ever happen, you will be notified for the third time over the Stuttgart song hall, although it is already driven by her.
