If you travel a lot and happen to have an iPhone or an iPad in your pocket then you should be interested in an application like this. NAVIGON has just announced a new 1.7 version of their program and I am already crazy about it. This turn-by-turn navigation app has an improved system of navigation, can provide you with the variety of interesting places that are available in your area and will have such a thing as help2park service that will help you to find a parking place. It also includes optional Active Lane Assistant, Map Reporter, Retina Display support, user notifications, and ZAGAT Survey information available as an in-app purchase. Also, keep it in mind that Mobile Navigator is 30% until January 6, 2011. But, what concerns the price policy it could be a bit more friendly. Here are the prices: MobileNavigator Canada: $49.99 (on sale for $34.99) MobileNavigator North America $59.99 (on sale for $44.99) MobileNavigator US MyRegion East, Central or West: $29.99, additional regions $14.99. (first region on sale for $24.99) MobileNavigator USA: $49.99 (on sale for $34.99) In-app purchase prices: Zagat Survey Ratings and Reviews: $7.99 (on sale for $5.99) Traffic Live: $19.99 Panorama View 3D: $9.99 For more information you can read this official release and maybe it will help you to make the right decision. Universal iPad Integration: NAVIGON is the first major GPS Company to make navigation universal; it now runs natively on the iPhone and the iPad. Users with MobileNavigator installed can use the app on both devices without extra charges. The app utilizes the iPad’s large display and user interface with a higher resolution, and new menus. Route planning is convenient on the iPad, showing a large scrollable, multi-touch map to select destinations in simple taps. Users can plan their routes at home on the iPad and then send them to their iPhone for navigation on the go. MobileNavigator can also be used for navigation on the iPad. Capitalizing on the large screen, the app demonstrates Reality View Pro™ and the map view side-by-side, providing an accurate overview of the way ahead. In-map elements such as direction arrows, Lane and Speed Assistant symbols are designed in proportion to the iPad display size. Zagat Survey: An In App Purchase offers access to Zagat’s signature ratings and reviews of over 40,000 restaurants, hotels, attractions, golf courses, nightspots and other leisure activities, based on the thoughts and opinions of a worldwide network of thousands of surveyors. Zagat has become the world’s most trusted source to help consumers make informed decisions about where to go. Zagat’s content is integrated into MobileNavigator’s point of interest search, so users can easily find locations within a city, state or nearby. A tap on the individual destination reveals further information such as ratings of the appeal, decor and service as well as prices, telephone numbers and the full review text. Active Lane Assistant: The market first feature Active Lane Assistant assists drivers with getting and staying in the correct lane by showing a live lane animation. Displayed in the lower right corner of the map view, the animation reflects the current lane configuration and allows drivers to see ahead. An orange line indicates the way the driver should follow. The optional feature can be switched on or off. Map Reporter: The new Map Reporter feature enables users with the power to store changed road names, new speed limits, and one-way streets and submit them to improve the accuracy of future maps. The information is checked, verified and then integrated into later map updates. Retina Display Support: Retina display adaptation is further enhanced and now also shows the map, map fonts and POIs in high resolution. User Notifications and Newsletter: The update now also allows users to receive on-screen messages with important information about MobileNavigator within the app. In addition, users can also sign up for a newsletter and receive exclusive offers and first hand information by email. help2park: The first application in the “Search & Find” category, help2park, kicks of the series and is now available in the App Store. The application helps drivers find a parking spot nearby, using a clean and easy to use interface. By gently touching a dial, users can set the radius they’d like to search in. Tapping a “P” symbol then opens a list of parking options – including addresses and distances from the current location. By changing the view, the spaces can also be shown on a map. If NAVIGON’s premium navigation app, MobileNavigator, is installed on the iPhone, drivers can guide directly to the parking space of their choice.
