In addition, your NAVIGON also displays up to two further possible routes, providing a clear choice. You decide whether you follow the recommended route or take one of the alternatives.

Reality View Pro

shows roads not as lines, but realistically, with asphalt and road markings and signs. This makes it easier for you to maintain an overview of motorway junctions and helps you choose the right exit (Reality View Light: exits only).


Speed Assistant

tells you the current speed limit. It will also provide you with audio and visual warnings, if you happen to exceed it..
