Navigon MobileNavigator hits the iPhone app store

Navigon MobileNavigator for the iPhone includes a number of features seen on Navigon's dedicated in-car GPS units

Navigon has released the full Australian version of its MobileNavigator app for the iPhone, providing full turn-by-turn GPS navigation.

The full version of MobileNavigator follows the initial release of MobileNavigator Lite last month, which allowed users to try the software before deciding to purchase the full version.

MobileNavigator for iPhone has 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. iPhone-specific features include a rotating map display, the ability to navigate to an address in the iPhone's contact list and multi-touch zoom capabilities on the map screen.

"By making the MobileNavigator for the iPhone available for users in Australia, we are further expanding our global presence in the field of navigation for mobile phones," said Gerhard Mayr of Navigon.

MobileNavigator is compatible with both the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS.It is priced at $99.99, but will be available for a promotional price of $69.99 until 15 August.

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.

Navigon North America was fine until 1.5
Now it’s garbage. I tried to update to 1.5 and lost everthing.
It told me my iphone didn’t have enough space. So I cleared my phone of reams of Data including some apps for which I had paid money. But I wanted a good GPS. I had almost 4 gig for Navigon. Same message – not enough space. I downloaded to my main computer through itunes. When I tried to sync – same message. No room. So I cleared My I phone of the earlier Navigon thinking that would do the trick. Then back in itunes the link had disappeared. Now I’ve got nothing.
This is a very resource eating app, and I don’t mind that. but when you start filling it with nonsense like Facebook and Twitter, it takes even more resources. I want Navigation, not teenage social networking. Facebook is for 15 year olds who don’t even drive. If I want Twitter I’ll use my computer not my Iphone.
I’m telling everyone I know that Navigon, once very useful is now pure, unadulterated garbage.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
