"For those who miss TomTom"

Reviewed by / Aug 25, 2014

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.

    As a long time (happy) user of Navigon for the iPhone, I thought I would purchase the android version while on vacation. It has been nothing but disappointment. The biggest issues are: a) the app crashes rendering it dangerous and useless, b) you have to force quit to get it to quit and c) very clunky look, feel and design. I'm sorry to sat that this has been a waste of money.

    The maps will not download on my galaxy note 2. It states no memory card.

    ap it is trying to make pictures of surroundings every time I am using it. Spying. Wise designer is not realizing that the lens is usually against some surface. changing my review to 0 fast database allowing search by address. Some installation problems when I downloaded all states but after removing and downloading states again in smaller groups works well. The disappointing are the mini IKON'

    I like this better than competitor GPS app, I purchased a year ago. The user interface, turn by turn voice and graphics are very refined. The only thing that could you improvement is the address search specifically having to chose a state. I have used other GPS app that will search available maps and give you options. Minor detail though, I definitely recommend this GPS app.

    Loses GPS signal. Need a address search emgine like Google. Satellite imagery would also be a plus

    This used to be my favorite app on ios it looked so clean and was a joy and easy to use now on android this app is clunky backwards and often doesn't find address that ios would. Please update this app it's 2015 no app should look like it was made for Windows 98 also would be a nice caveat to have android wear support.
