The NAVIGON 20 plus complies with the NAVIGON 20 easy except for a few details. Just details can make beautiful and attractive: the hardware of the 20 plus is decorated with a small silver bar the holder something more elaborate shaped as in the small easy brother.

For that alone the additional investment of 30 euros not – worth safely but the NAVIGON 20 plus has a lot more on the pan.

The tour guide

There was a the premium TMC included in the price, which offers a significantly better traffic information. Since the implementation of identical was implemented in the menu to the 20 easy, there are still more points. Also contains the NAVIGON of 20 plus of a artificial text-to-speech-voice that reads out street names and leads to the driver on the road even better.

But the main difference is the Merian travel guide on the road reading a matching text at the passing sights. This information is not as extensive as in the in the last year faded “Merian Scout Navigator”, voice quality not on those match up: while a voice file recorded in the Studio is playing the original, text-to-speech voice is used when the NAVIGON.

Thus not often unintentionally amusing looks somewhat brittle reading aloud the information and promotes not many rich content for days in the near future. The Guide itself is therefore a welcome addition, the text-to-speech feature will be disabled but rather in practice.

Safe guidance

On the test drive the NAVIGON 20 plus lack of differences suggested hot is similar as it wants 20 easy-: safe guidance thanks to very precise and again improved speech output. The active lane Assistant fits well into the map, but also display is due to the small 3.5-inch always pretty much going on the map.

The routing was identical, the storage ring thanks to better accuracy of premium TMC events a whole lot better.

So the 30 euros more investment be worth? Jein. Alone for the Guide and the fancier hardware rather not the text-to-speech voice and the TMC-Pro, however, to bring real added value in everyday life. Necessarily needed both are but not – in that it is a matter of taste really, whether it easy or plus selects.
