Fully offline turn-by-turn navigational system, designed to be used in the car
Navigon is a turn-by-turn navigational system, similar to Google Maps. It's unique in that it's a "real" GPS app - instead of accessing the maps over 3G like Google Maps, you anticipate where you're going in advance and download the detailed map of that area. That way, even if you drop off the grid, the app keeps directing you like nothing's happened.
The interface is solid, and the voice prompts are loud enough to be heard over mild car noise.
However, I'd only recommend purchasing this rather expensive app if you plan on spending quite a lot of time driving somewhere with no signal. Getting access to live traffic updates isn't free (it's included in Google Maps, plus other comparable navigational systems), and you'll also have to pay to re-download maps when they're updated. Honestly, it's a decent enough navigational system, but the price of Navigon feels really out of line with where free technology is these days.

Poor customer service, no warning of needed update that can leave you without GPS in middle of nowhere. Impossible to connect on my new tablet. To stay away from!!!!
Been using it for 3 years on different devices worked well on all of them. Only negative thing I have to say is that the volume of the Navigator gets drowned out if you're playing music from the phone at the same time and the maps don't update as frequently as in some competitors navigation software.
As prevously stated you cant change spoken language. Almost unusable för me .
For some inexplicable reason it kills my WiFi when looking for updates. Once I exit Navigon, WiFi comes back up.
