German GPS manufacturer Navigon has released an Australian version of its MobileNavigator Lite app for the iPhone, allowing users to try the software before deciding to purchase the full version.

Navigon MobileNavigator Lite displays the user’s position on a map and allows them to search for nearby POIs, but it has no active route guidance. The full version of the turn-by-turn navigation app is expected to launch "soon"; Navigon hasn't revealed a release date.

"The Lite version offers a preview of Navigon’s full application for the iPhone," said Egon Minar, CEO of Navigon. "In Europe, the Navigon MobileNavigator for the iPhone has been tremendously successful, and very soon, it will be available in Australia as well."

The full version of MobileNavigator for iPhone will include a number of features seen on Navigon's dedicated in-car GPS units including Reality View Pro, Lane Assistant Pro, Speed Assistant and Day & Night mode. Pricing has yet to be confirmed.

Navigon's MobileNavigator is the second turn-by-turn GPS app to hit the Australian App Store, following Sygic's Mobile Maps 2009 iPhone app, which launched in June.

GPS manufacturer TomTom has also announced the impending release of a dedicated app and car kit for the iPhone, though no release date has been set.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
