While it’s true that iOS 6 will finally bring native turn-by-turn voice navigation to iOS devices this Fall, Navigon still makes the “Best” Navigation Apps in my Opinion and they’re available NOW! Best of all they’re on sale too.
This latest update brings Google Street View into the fold. This will be really helpful when navigating to an unfamiliar area and actually being able to see the place you’re trying to get to. For those who want the ultimate flying driving experience, you can do an optional in-app purchase of the “Cockpit” ($3.99) mode which displays extended information such as g-force value, altitude, compass, roll and tilt angles (not sure that I want to ever see a “roll” angle though).
These Apps are Universal and therefore native to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch!
Navigon is having a Summer Sale on their iPhone/iPod touch GPS Navigation Apps. My Region Apps normally go for $24.99, however for a short time they are only $19.99 each!
Now you can get: MyRegion US East – covering: (AL, CT, DE, FL, GA, IN, KY, MA, ME, MD, MI, NH, NJ, NY, NC, OH, PA, Ri, SC, TN, VT, VA, WV) On Sale for $19.99
MyRegion US Central – covering: (AL, AR, CO, IL, IN, IA, KS, KY, LA, MI, MN, MO, MS, MT, NE, NM, ND, OH, OK, SD, TN, TX, WI, WY) On Sale for $19.99
MyRegion US West – covering: (AZ, CA, CO, ID, MT, NV, NM, OR, UT, WA, WY) On Sale for $19.99
Need a little more? Say two regions? No worries, just buy the main region you need and you can expand your coverage with an in-app purchase of up to two additional regions. So this way you can start with the main region you need, but add on later and only if you need to. This is the kind of pricing that I felt these GPS Navigation Apps should have had all along! So don’t hesitate. Jump on these Sale prices while the getting is good. Also if you have an iPod touch or you just want a great Car Kit to go with your Navigon App, check out this one by Magellan.
My setup above is:
FAQ: Yes, all of the Maps are built-in to the App. No, you don’t need a data connection while you’re using it (except for the weather, parking and Google POI search). No it does’t require your data plan (except for the 3 things I just mentioned). No it doesn’t require a Car Kit unless you’re using an iPod touch, which doesn’t have a GPS (the car kit does). No, there are no monthly fees. You buy the App and you’re done.
