The NAVIGON 40 premium has a very easily operated Bluetooth Handsfree Car Kit on board, which reads the driver even SMS via text to speech. With its 4.3 inch display, it offers sufficient overview and space for the usual flood of feature, which is of course very extensively down the Premium Edition.

An innovation on Board of the NAVIGON 40 premium is for example the “active lane Assistant”, an animated lane. He will appear in multitrack fork, can work but slightly confusing, since the map and the wizard move different speeds and in different directions. Fortunately, NAVIGON leaves the user the choice whether he wants to enable the new functionality or rather relies on the veteran functioning.

These are complemented by an elaborate 3-D representation, a travel guide, but no premium TMC. The display representation of a NAVIGON acts 40 premium total very chic on the edges but something overloaded. Anyone who appreciates clear, simple steps, should look around more somewhere else, at NAVIGON configurator and feature friends at their expense.

Also the guidance is something confusing sometimes for inexperienced users, but the revised signpost displaying motorway fork, the card itself, and the 3-D representations are a feast for the eye. I’m glad that Narrator with the NAVIGON 40 premium in terms of precision and clarity still ranks among the best, what there is in the navigation world.

Thanks to the MyRoutes function leads the NAVIGON 40 premium on optimum routes, only the calculation is something in the length sometimes.
