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.

Don't understand why someone would say "spyware". Go to settings-traffic-optimize traffic recognition and uncheck send floating data.
Been using it for a while and the updates keep getting better.
Pls update the app with red light camera beep option. Garmin for iphone has that. Voice output via Bluetooth on Note 4 has issues. The voice is not clear at all. I have changed the channels and the same issue it is still in there
After loving both North America and Europe iPhone apps, I was shocked at the primitive and almost sophomore level of UI on the Android version. Especially given the price, Garmin should be embarrassed to charge for this substandard rendition.
Loved this app. But, recent update appears to have taken out the route profile. I can't find it anywhere. Combine this with the lack of a menu button on the g3 or HTC one, and there are no longer any sub menus. This is huge for me and will limit my usage.
Saw this ad in a SKYMALL magazine on a flight to NY. I purchased while in NY and have used it with the HUD. This is the BEST GPS that I have used short of the GARMIN 496.
I had this for my old iPhone 4s and it worked really well. I miss the voice of the standard female on iPhone. I hate these voices. Bring the is voice.
