Navone 2100 Map Update


Cobra Electronics Nav One 2500 3.5-Inch Portable GPS Navigator Review

It’s Simple To use and the voice is clear as a bell.It lets you know if you’re turning left or right ahead of time so you’re prepared and when you get to the exact spot for the turn it beeps. And… If it’s so hard to remember what direction was told to you a minute ago, there’s a directional arrow at the bottom left which points in the turn of your direction.If you miss your turn the system reconfigures to where you are and will direct you from there.Again, I like it.

Cobra GPS 1000 DLX 1.8-Inch Portable GPS Navigation Review

I just recently purchased the Cobra GPS1000DLX and am extremely disappointed.

Pros: Hardware – The unit is compact (about the size of an average PDA)

Cons: Software (Both on the Unit and included software)
Hardware – Serial (RS232) interface

All I can say about the software on the unit is that it’s functional.Other then that it will take awhile to get used to and is not very user friendly.

As for the included Rand McNally Street Finder software, it is obvious that this software was written around 1999 and has had no updates. Cobra/Rand are really trying to squeeze there pennies out of it as long as they can.Just trying to install the software on a computer with XP can be a challenge I’ve found.

*Warning* Windows XP SP2 will sometimes wipe out a file that this software requires to install. Let me save you some time, it’s not listed as a known problem on there website, you have to call Rand McNally for the solution. (That’s all Cobra will tell you to do)

*Recommendation – Bring some coffee and donuts with you before trying to install. Once the CD is inserted and the install program started, it took an average of 5 minutes before the pre-install program was done and the actual install program started.

Once the software is installed, it looks more at home on a Windows 98 machine and functions just as it looks. After creating a map and trying to download it the GPS unit it told me it needed the “Data” CD. (*Note – This seems more like something that should be part of the initial install) Let’s just say that it also took me a little while to figure out that it wanted it in the first CD drive on my system, not the drive I used to install it. After getting the Disc in the right drive it started coping the files it needed (There was enough time for another coffee break).Once the transfer between the software the GPS unit began, I noticed the progress bar was barely moving (Yet another coffee break) so I used that time to reflect on the benefits of USB vs Serial and why Serial is OUTDATED for consumer products.

Once completed with that task I created a Route between two points. The software traced my route completely inaccurately (Lets just say my starting point was approx 15+ meters from the actual route, not just one point but the whole route)

This is good unit for a teenager or young camper or as a gift. Other then that, I recommend getting one of the other GPS units out there.

Cobra Nav One 4500 5-Inch Portable GPS Navigator Review

My wife bought me a Cobra 4500 for Christmas. It’s a very attractive vehicle GPS with a big screen, crisp resolution and looks/feels sturdy. However, I have some complaints about the software design that I’d like to share.First, the routing software makes some directional mistakes when on freeways.For instance at freeway interchanges, sometimes it will tell me to get onto the upcoming freeway in the wrong direction (i.e. “keep to the left onto I-10 West” when it should say “keep to the left onto I-10 East”). It will always correct itself at the last second, but the correction usually ends up being just before the ramp. In an unfamiliar city, that would not give me time to make a safe lane change. Also, the 3-D graphics are so poor that I’ve had to select the traditional map view to navigate. As for traffic, it’s hit and miss.Sometimes I get the traffic icon on the map as soon as the radio announces the accident, but sometimes I get it 20 or more minutes later, or not at all! Also, for some unknown reason the software developers decided to program the unit so that the user is unable to get a traffic warning notification pop-up unless a speed reduction was posted with the accident. I’ve encountered several major accidents where traffic has been at a near standstill, yet the pop-up that allows you to select auto re-route did not come up on the screen (probably because speed reductions are not being posted by the traffic provider, Clear Channel Radio). If the pop-up doesn’t activate (which it has yet to do for me), you’re forced to use the normal detour function to get around the accident. This process is very cumbersome because you have to zoom in on the icon, look at where the accident is located, and then get to the detour screen so you can select your detour — not something you want to do in heavy traffic!Hey Cobra, why not let the user decide if he/she wants to be notified of all accidents instead of the unit deciding for us??? I’ve notified Cobra of all of this and I’m hoping they will come out with a software update to correct these problems. Until then, I’m only lukewarm about the unit.

Cobra NAV One 5000 5-inch Bluetooth Portable GPS Navigator Review

THE GOOD:

The unit’s 5″ screen is incredibly clear; spoken street names are loud and clear; menu is so easy to understand the unit can even be figured out without the book and just by navigating through screens.The “Go Home” button is great.If you’re lost … click “Go Home” and the unit directs you to any location set as “Home”.Lots of great features, millions of points of interest; the Real-Time Traffic Information can be accessed with separate purchase of a Traffic Data Receiver.I’m not disappointed that I did not have to pay for something I did not need/want right now.The bluetooth option for accessing your cellphone is convenient although you may need to purchase a separate mic if callers have difficulty hearing your voice.Again, this was not a feature I was looking for and it was not as important to me as the large, crisp screen and the ease of use.

The unit has been greatly improved with software updates and I comfortably rely on it now that my initial issues were resolved.Cobra was extremely responsive to all questions/issues communicated by phone and email.Every problem was resolved in a timely fashion by knowledgeable technicians.

My system information is as follows:
Application:1.4.0
Kernel: 1.49
Bootloader:7
Database:7036
Unit:737000603011

THE ANNOYING:

1.SOFTWARE ERROR:”Fatal Error” [if you have this error contact Cobra (773-889-8870) for the update if unavailable on the website (www.cobra.com)]

RESOLVED ISSUE:A “Fatal Error” froze unit during 2nd day of use.After shutting unit down and leaving off for a few moments, it restarted and continued to function normally. Assuming a software issue I referenced Cobra website but found no updates available.Upon contacting Cobra a rep indicated a technician would contact me by phone.Surprisingly, within a few hours a tech called back. After a brief discussion he forwarded a software update by email. The instructions were easy to follow and the problem was resolved.

2. FEATURE:Trip Data

ISSUE:Eastern time incorrect.Unit apparently not updated w/Day Light Savings patch.
******

3. FEATURE:GPS Location

ISSUE:GPS location was occasionally incorrect.One day while in Winthrop, MA the unit displayed Chicago, IL. The location did not correct itself for approximately 15 mins. The unit appeared to exerience a delayed response in securing the GPS signal for reconfiguration as it was not even spinning the cobra icon evident while processing.

RESOLVED:I contacted Cobra and they directed me to return the unit for inspection with a detailed description of the problem.The unit was quickly sent back to me in perfect working order.

******

4. FEATURE:Hands-Free Calls from Bluetooth Enabled Cellular Phones – Speaker Volume

ISSUE:Although the adjustable volume of unit’s spoken street names is clear and easy to hear; the Bluetooth feature is almost useless because callers can’t hear me over the unit.

RESOLVED:Cobra provided a separate mic that resolved the issue.Again, this was not a feature I was looking for and was not as disappointed that this was not perfect.However, Cobra resolved a matter for me without any difficulty.
******

5. FEATURE:Exclusive Cobra-verified Speed and Red Light Camera location database

These are apparently not frequently used in my area.After completely forgetting about the feature, the unit alerted me to the location of an upcoming overhead traffic signal, complete with mounted cameras.
*****

6. FEATURE:Over 7.6 Million Interest Points

ISSUE:Points of Interest (POI) occasionally display on map when not selected in menu.It appears that POIs (i.e., gas stations, Indian/French restaurants, theatres, etc.) are easy to inadvertently select while scrolling through the menus since the screen is quite sensitive.Be sure to press the down arrow at the furthest right-hand side of the down symbol to avoid selecting the last item in a screen.
*****

7.FEATURE:Map Theme

ISSUE:Unit menu indicates 3 map themes:”Easy View/Standard/Simple.” However, the manual and file content of recent software update list map themes as “Easy View/Standard/Fun.”
Q. Is the unit displaying the correct map theme?
Q. Since the themes appear similar, what is the difference?
*****

8.FEATURE:For NAV ONE 5000 Map Update, order Item # MNA UPD 4000.(listed in product manual).

ISSUE:One week ago, I paid over $350 for the Cobra Nav One GPS 5000.It’s apparently so new that Circuit City only had one unit for sale and software updates for glitches are not yet available online and are being forwarded to customers through email by Cobra technicians.

RESOLVED:Once again, Cobra appreciated my situation as a customer and kindly forwarded the Map Update at no charge since I purchased the unit with an older version installed.
*****

9.FEATURE:Battery Operation

ISSUE:Even with Battery Save Mode activated, the unit can run for approximately 1-2 hours without being plugged into the cig adapter.If you do not have an auxiliary charger in the car you can purchase a double adapter in order to have an extra outlet to charge your cellphone.
*****

Cobra NAV One 5000 5-inch Bluetooth Portable GPS Navigator Review


Cobra GPSM 2100 3.5-Inch Portable GPS Navigator Review

Went to the store with every intention of purchasing TomTom One or the comparably priced Garmin GPS I had researched online for the past week. Really confusing considering all of GPS reviews I’d read gave no definitiveexplanations on why one rated over the other. Since it all seemed to come down to personal preference, I figured the only way to make a final decision was to demo each model at the store.

The TomTom One would not work! Each time I started to enter an address, the unit would revert back to demo ads. The Garmin model I was interested in was not on display. The sales clerk was kind enough to turn on the TomTom go to demo, but it annoyingly shifted between a loud demo and attempting to pick up a signal. If not for this, I would have overlooked the Cobra 2100 entirely.

What first caught my attention was price. Having failed to demo the units I wanted, the Cobra 2100 was the only GPS on display within my price range. In fact, it was the same price as TomTom One, but appeared to be larger. Side by side comparison made TomTom One look like a toy! I clicked through the various demo options and watched a simulation of a drive from the store to my home. Fine, yet I still had my heart set on the TomTom and was about to find another store to demo the model, but I changed my mind.

Though never owning any Cobra products, I’m aware that Cobra was a big name in radar detection at one time. In addition to GPS navigation, the Cobra 2100 comes with traffic light camera detection and speed alerts already installed. There are more traffic light cameras being installed throughout Baltimore City everyday. This feature and the Cobra name convinced me to give the 2100 a try.

Had the 2100 installed and operating in no top flat. As mentioned elsewhere online, it took more time to get it out of the box than it took to connect it. Once turned on it quickly detected a signal and showed me my present location. After quickly scanning through the menu, I typed in my home address, clicked ‘NAVIGATE’ and was routed to my destination.

The Cobra 2100 offers a clear visual presentation of the route you’re traveling while giving clear and precise verbal directions of how to proceed. Advisories are given continually and well in advance of any turns or deviations from your present course. There is no text-to-speech, though IMHO, none is needed as a quick glance identifies all streets along your route.

Options are given to choose specific routes, but I ignored this on my initial run. The Cobra 2100 (like MapQuest, sometimes) attempted to route me away from what I knew to be a quicker route. Upon ignoring the route suggested, the Cobra 2100 quickly recalculated, suggesting a route based on my adjustment. I followed the same route later, this time taking the route suggested by the Cobra 2100. Cobra added an additional 10 minutes to my journey by unnecessarily routing me on and off the interstate. The “detour” consisted of a series of rapid lane changes and turns. As it was night and the maneuvers demanded I pay strict attention to driving, I didn’t chance glancing at the screen. To it’s credit, the Cobra 2100 provided precise verbal navigation so there was no need to watch anythingbut the road. I find I’m not particularly concerned about Cobra’s routing suggestion. Had I been unfamiliar with the area, the additional 10 minutes would not be factor at all since the Cobra 2100 WILL, it demonstrates, get me to your destination safely.

Oh…before I forget…I passed through one of those camera intersections while testing the Cobra. It signals the driver by producing a series of camera clicking sounds and displays an on-screen traffic icon as an advisory.

WAY COOL!
