Navigon debuts MobileNavigator GPS software for iPhone


Navigon has released its MobileNavigator North America turn-by-turn GPS application for the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS. Taking up a massive 1.29GB of space, MobileNavigator stores all its map data directly on the device for operation in areas where cellular service is unavailable, and features Reality View Pro 3D navigation views with actual road signs and lane guidance, Lane Assistant Pro, which helps drivers prepare for an upcoming exit or tun with on-screen arrows, a Speed Assistant, day and night mode for map display, single-click “Take me home” functionality, branded POIs, both 2D and 3D map views, automatic switching between portrait and landscape formats, and more. Navigon’s MobileNavigator North America is available now from the App Store and will sell for $70 through August 15, when the price will increase to $100; no subscription is required.

What a POS! I wasted $70 for software that can’t even come close to acquiring a GPS signal 9 out of 10 times while Google Maps does 10 out of 10 times from the same locations!

Navigon support is non-existent. After wiping and restoring my iPhone twice, same non-GPS story. Navigon even told me to re-download the software after creating an account on their website. Two problems, you can’t even register the iPhone software in your “account” and downloads are via iTunes. Their scripted comments told me to ship my “device” back to them if I still had issues. WTF? These guys don’t even know their own product.

Does this app operate as purely a GPS. i.e. It gets a satelite signal without going through the wireless phone network? I am thinking about normal roaming and use charges when travelling overseas.

Just heard from Navigon. The GPS goes direct to satelite and not through the wireless LAN.
