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.

Note:
- Positioning your smartphone correctly in the vehicle is very important to ensure optimal GPS reception and for your own safety! Ensure that this is always positioned outside of the range of the airbags!
- NAVIGON is an on-board solution. This means that all map material, voice announcements and system files are saved on the telephone. Therefore no charges or waiting time for data transfer are incurred.
- The Europe version requires approx. 2GB of free memory. Please ensure you have sufficient available mass-storage space (SD card). The map material must be downloaded after installing the app via wireless Internet on the smartphone. Please ensure a reliable and safe connection is available.
- On first startup a short data connection (ca. 25kB) is required to register your product

Whether in the car, by bike or on foot, NAVIGON hopes you have fun navigating.

    Es fehlen Routen Im- und Export sowie eine Routen Aufzeichnung.
    Jedes kleiner Zusatz wird teuer bezahlt. Die reine Navigation ist
    klasse , das war dann aber auch.

    Expencive and not trustable. Crash at startup without 3G or WiFi network without notice. Sometimes GPS-off option jammed it and again without any notice.Why this program want to internet connection even if all of maps are already downloaded inside of it?

    If you want to use this for navigating by foot , forget it. The interface just offers a top-down view with incorrect placement of your own position. Most likely the walking directions can be upgraded with real money via IAP, but that is not the point. I paid A LOT of money for this to bring me from one place to another (be it by car, bike or foot), and by bike or on foot it just plain sucks and ma

    I have used a lot of different navigation software but this stands out. I have used it in several countries in Europe with good results. Google maps is now a strong second choice but they can't find a numbered streets yet.

    It has too many mistakes of roads closed. Even though i reported it still show the road closed so the routes take me all around. From Amsterdam to Mastricht it takes you off the highway in Utrecht due to a mistake on the map. That is unacceptable for such long time to have main routes wrong
