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.
+++ Latest version 5.2.6 now available +++
- The software requires additional data (maps, voices etc.) via WLAN after installation!
With NAVIGON you can transform your Android smartphone into a fully functional mobile navigation system with on-board maps, which entails no data transfer or roaming charges for map display, route calculation, etc. Thanks to a faithful adaptation of the menu functions, the app fits in seamlessly with the Android operating concept.

***NAVIGON FreshMaps XL:
The in app purchase option FreshMaps provides quarterly map updates for at least two years. The service uses trusted, field-verified, and quality-controlled map and points of interest updates from NAVTEQ® to make sure the NAVIGON app provides the most accurate and reliable directions possible. This saves you time and headaches on the road.
- 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.
- This 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.
- WQXGA and WQHD (2560x1600/1440 dpi) are not supported
- 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.

On S5 street names are so small you can barely read them. No way to make font bigger. Black letters on grey/brown background. Accident waiting to happen if your trying to identify streets while driving.
Best navigation app, been using it for 4 years. Always reliable. Very helpful.
Are you kidding me, not compatible with LG G3? Please fix this immediately. Very upset I can't use this GPS Software with my new phone!!!
Original garmin navigator is far better than this, severely retarded and downgraded from original maps, not worth for your money.
Version 5.2.5 info is not correct. no Smartwatch Connect for Galaxy Gear2/Gear2 Neo that run on Tizen OS.
Amazing how many negative comments there are on here - I've been using navigon for at least 5 years without a single issue (previously on an iphone). I'm assuming the comments are coming from people who need help getting dressed in the morning. If it works great for the majority, but not for you, do ya think it may be you with the problem??? Tired of people slamming apps because their not smart
Please enable backup feature.
