    NAVIGON USA's review

    Published: 2014-08-25, by .

    Fully offline turn-by-turn navigational system, designed to be used in the car


    "For those who miss TomTom"

    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.

    Whether on holiday, taking a weekend trip or heading off somewhere as yet unfamiliar – with NAVIGON, you can be sure of getting there quickly and safely! Transform your Smartphone into a full-performance mobile navigation system that includes onboard maps so that you can always find your way – even when no internet connection1 is available.

    Important: Following installation, the app needs further data (maps, etc.) which have to be loaded via WiFi (WLAN).

    *** Scope of function ***
    - Onboard map material: only save the road maps on your Smartphone that you really need. That way, you save on memory space and can navigate even when no internet connection is available.

    - Intelligent address entry, including voice entry(1): thanks to the first-class, simplified address entry, which can be operated using the keypad or via voice input, you can find your destination even more quickly.

    - Precise voice commands, including street names: so that you can concentrate on driving the car.

    - The latest traffic reports(1, 2): avoid annoying jams automatically.

    - Hazard warnings(1, 2): you can choose to receive alerts of danger spots such as mobile speed traps.

    - POI search: find your destination even without entering the address directly – locally, Community-based or using Augmented Reality.

    - Real signage and road sign displays: you always have an overview thanks to photo-realistic views of junctions and road signs.

    - Dynamic lane assistant: at junctions where the exit is unclear or on motorway exits, be guided into the right lane every time.

    - Speed assistant: NAVIGON warns you visually or audibly if you are exceeding the permitted speed limit.

    - Optimal route: choose the right option for you, from up to three suggested routes.

    - Route planning: plan longer trips with several destinations en route.

    - Expanded pedestrian navigation: navigate to your destination on foot too – or use Urban Guidance1,2 if you also want to include public transport.

    - Many other in-app purchases possible: The NAVIGON cockpit, 3D maps showing mountains and valleys, and much more.

    *** Maps ***
    - Latest Map Guarantee for the latest HERE maps(3) (formerly Navteq), with the following coverage: USA

    - NAVIGON FreshMaps XL(2): For a one-off payment, you get the maps of the USA, Canada as well as Mexico and the latest map updates from experts up to four times a year, for two years! It means that your app is always up-to-date, containing the latest changes to the road network and any amount of new points of interest.

    *** Please note the following ***
    The correct positioning of your Smartphone in the vehicle is important for optimum GPS reception. For that reason, we recommend the Garmin Smartphone Universal Mount with additional USB connection so that you can also charge your Smartphone during your trip. Continuous use of GPS can shorten battery life. Available in specialist stores or directly from the Garmin Shop at
    Please also note our FAQ area at
    This version of NAVIGON can require up to 1.6GB of free memory (depending on the number of maps you download). Due to the high data volume, we recommend using WiFi (WLAN). On first startup a short data connection (ca. 25kB) is mandatory to register your product

    NAVIGON wishes you a lot of fun from your navigation – whether in the car, on a bike or on foot!

    (1)To be able to provide you with the latest reports at all times, some functions require an internet connection (e.g. traffic reports or speed camera alerts). However, the navigation system itself, including address search, speed display, driving lane assistant and much more, does not require the internet.
    (2)Available as an additional in-app purchase.
    (3)You get the maps most up-to-date at the time you purchase the app

    I have both a Galaxy 8+ and Note 8 and the application will not open. You receive a error. It is very disappointing that Navigon works but Navigon USA is broken. I am not willing to pay another 50.00 for another app from Garmin. Not Good! Please offer a refund or migration path from Navigon USA to Navigon with the North American maps.

    Really shows its age, both graphically and in terms of features. Search doesn't work offline, but the semi-hidden "Set Destination" does. Has the typical old GPS problems like being unable to navigate to a city without an address.

    I had LG G4 and the app worked great. Now I have a G6 and I just get an error when I try to open it! All good now, good service from the support team.

    Very good graphic guys, and to you with note 8, i have a note 8 to,the app wouldn't work if you downloaded from other source without paying for it. I strongly recommend to Garmin to add features so we can alert for police etc like waze or otherwise no one will buy your app anymore.

    I purchased a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and got an error upon opening. Used to work great for many years. Now it's useless. Please help!
