Google Street View Coming to Navigon Navigation App

Mobile World Congress, the annual trade show focused on all things related to cellular mobile techology, is in full swing in beautiful Barcelona this week and Navigon, the maker of personal navigation devices and apps for multiple smartphone platforms, announced there a new upcoming feature for its iOS navigation app. Google Street View will come to the Navigon iOS apps in a future update, allowing users the ability to see actual photos of locations to more accurately identify destinations.

New features will also be coming to the Android version of Navigon, including Active Lane Assistant (a feature already present in the iOS version), Bluetooth audio support and more. Navigon, which was acquired by Garmin last year, has not announced a specific date when these updates will be available.

Navigon remains my preferred turn-by-turn navigation app on my iPhone though there are several worthy competitors available in the App Store if its price or other features deter you. Navigon has updated its app regularly since release to add new features and address bugs and last released a major overhaul in the fall with a new interface and map management system.
