Navigon MobileNavigator Apps Get Augmented Reality, Map Updates, More

by Marianne Schultz
 

Navigon, the maker of personal navigation devices and apps for multiple smartphone platforms, has released a major update for its MobileNavigator iOS apps adding augmented reality features to locate nearby points of interest as well as map updates, at-a-glance route traffic information and more.

The full list of new features in version 1.8 is as follows:

  • All new NAVTEQ map data – A free map update for all users!
  • Reality Scanner (iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4) – Augmented Reality based search for interesting places around your position.
  • TrafficCheck – Traffic information for your route at a glance (only available in countries with Traffic Live).
  • U.S. Safety and Red Light Camera locations incl. audiovisual warning (available through In App Purchase).

The Reality Scanner uses the iPhone’s camera to display information on nearby businesses and points of interest with a live overlay. While this is definitely not practical to use while driving for safety reasons, it can be handy for pedestrians.

Navigon has been on the ball with delivering new features, most recently adding iPad compatibility and Zagat guides via in-app purchase in December.

In conjunction with the release of version 1.8, all MobileNavigator iOS apps are on sale and the prices of options available via in-app purchase are also reduced through April 28. For example, MobileNavigator for the USA and Canada is down to $44.99 from $59.99 and the in-app Traffic Live Feature is down to $14.99 from $19.99.

    Navigon is a great GPS app. I love the eye-friendly darkened (but still iOS-like) interface, and the voice guidance has been very solid. Their MyRegion versions (limited area and low price) are the best deal, I think.
