  • Enhanced Pedestrian Navigation
  • Google Local Search – Yay!
  • Coordinate Input
  • SOS/DirectHelp
  • Turn-byTurn RouteList
  • Manual zooming in 2D and 3D while navigating
  • Favorites are being displayed in the map
  • Country info when crossing borders
  • Switch between "Music" and Audiobook" mode for iPod playback
  • Phonebook contacts can be selected as interim destinations
  • Using contact groups in the phone is now possible
  • Faster start up time – Yay!
  • Traffic messages can be easily browsed by sliding the screens

1.4.0 is a Free update to existing users. It's my favorite iPhone navigation app to date. It's ON SALE for only $59.99 now through 1/11/2010. Get it here from the App Store: MobileNavigator North America
