There are certainly some choices when it comes to navigation apps on Windows Phone. HERE Drive is arguably one of the more popular choices among Windows Phone users, mostly because it’s free. But there are plenty of alternatives in the Store that provide features and functions you won’t get with a free app. We recently compared some of the top navigation apps on Windows Phone, but one of them just got updated today – Navigon. Let’s check out what’s new.

The last update for Navigon we covered came in mid-August. That update put the app on version 4.8 and brought some new features. Most notably traffic information about your route could now be read (TTS) and you could click on a POI for more information. Today we’re looking at version 4.9 in the Store, this is what it brings:

  • Panorama View 3D (in-app)
  • EULA/Privacy
  • Bugfixes


This update applies to Navigon USA, Navigon Europe, and Navigon Australia. So if you’re on those you should definitely update for the new features. An updated end-user license agreement/policy isn’t the most exciting change, but is new.

There’s also a new in-app purchase for you. If you want, you can spend an extra $10.99 on top of the base price to get a new Panorama view that’s in 3D. Any takers?

Navigon is available for Windows Phone 7.x and 8. The USA version costs $49.99, the European edition goes for $99.99, and Australia can be had for $59.99. Want
