Cobra NavOne navigator finds favorite brands.

This is a preview, not a review.
The latest Cobra mobile navigation device, the NAV ONE 2100 offers the My Favorite Brands feature, which provides over 600 brands accessible at the touch of a button. Once you select your favorite brands from categories such as restaurants and stores, their brand icons appear on the map to show their locations. The unit was announced at the 2007 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

The optional traffic receiver and subscription deliver personalized traffic data for 50 major metropolitan areas throughout the United States via four color-coded levels of traffic flow information. In addition, Cobra's Compare Routes feature allows you to choose from two on-screen routing options to get you around traffic. The new device also offers an SD memory card expansion slot for future feature expansion.

Other features in Cobra's NAV ONE 2100 include an ultra-bright 3.5-inch touch-screen color display; millions of points of interest; functionality in temperatures ranging from -4 to 158 degrees Fahrenheit; and digital map data and rich content from Tele Atlas.

The NAV ONE 2100 will be available for under $350 in late Spring. The optional real-time traffic feature costs about $100, with a traffic service subscription fee of $59.99 a year.

I recently bought one and it is great for the money. Best Buy had them on sale for $199 on closeout.The traffic receiver/subscription is only worth it if you live in a big city, or travel alot through big cities, otherwise save the money for gas!
