    So after trying both //1st tomtom then navigon... then tomtom again
    I decided to go with navigon... tomtom was just not creative enough to come up with a good name for the product =]
    in reality, I 1st really liked tomtom and disliked navigon, but when I got used to the interface (navigon) tomtom seemed really lame..
    and thats all i have to say on this topic, i have to go and punish my wife now... c ya...

    I think TomTom are going to have to come out with something pretty spectacular soon if they are going to survive long-term.

    I see Google as potentially big players in this field.

    Really...I enjoy a pretty logo. And I haven't had any problems with TomTom (except in heavy rain), and I've been unable to find a usable trial for Navigon North America.

    Lol...its the standard appstore TomTom logo...just look it up there! I use the iboxcarbon theme though, which renders the background white

    Not to mention, what name does Tom Tom have compared to Navigon.

    If it were a Garmin app then i would say yeah i trust Garmin a lil more than navigon but Tom Tom, really is it cus they had a short spree of advertisements on tv a while back?

    TomTom is much bigger than Navigon here in the US....

    With that said.....I use the Navigon app, as I think it is superior to TomTom's

    I wish Garmin would release an app I love my Nuvi 885.

    Can anybody, who is using Navigon, tell me how to turn the Reality view on?! I do not see any option as such. Do I need to install any other plugin or anything as such?!

    Reality view comes up on various intersections that navigon sets up in reality view. So i dunno if there are many of these in the areas u live.

    Or maybe u should know that reality view is not always on. Its just a guide for intersection with many onramps, exits, etc.
