Navigon is adding new features to its smart-phone navigation apps for Android and iPhone, continuing the rapid software evolution. This spring, iPhone users will be able to view a street-level image of their destination once it is calculated. Android users will gain more features already available on the iPhone, such as active lane assistance, Bluetooth support, and an onscreen traffic gauge. An exclusive for Android, this imminent update will add a widget for displaying nav info on the phone’s home page.
The Garmin-owned brand will also expand into the Samsung Bada operating system, opening up quality, third-party nav apps to another platform. And, it will offer a navigation app for the Cisco Cius business tablet.
Navigon currently offers a navigation app for Windows Phone 7, also.
Previously focused on portable navigators, Navigon has effectively transitioned their dashtop experience to mobile devices. In our past tests, the Navigon apps have performed quite well, and with their ongoing evolution, their apps offer upgrades over time—something dashtop navigators do not.
