The past few months have been a bit of a roller coaster ride for the Windows Phone navigation app GPS Voice Navigation.
Last month the app was recognized as the Best International App at the Mobile Excellence Awards. Then the app was pulled from the Windows Phone Store due to a dispute with Nokia Maps. And now, the app has been re-released with a few features missing and a few new ones added to the mix.
While we don't know the particulars of the issues that caused the app being de-listed, it's nice to see the developer being able to work around the restrictions and re-release a rather capable Windows Phone navigation app.
While Nokia Maps is no longer available you still have access to Bing, Google and MapQuest maps. As well as adding new features to GPS Voice Navigation, the developer hopes to restore the missing features (off-line maps, 3D view, etc.) eventually.
Additionally, to prevent those who purchased the original version of GPS Voice Navigation from paying twice, the new version is free for a limited time.
GPS Voice Navigation has been around for some time and always struck us as a quality navigation app. It is available for both Windows Phone 8 and 7.x devices.
You can pick up your copy of GPS Voice Navigation here in the Windows Phone Store (note: the old link found in previous articles is now inactive). Remember it's currently free but for a limited time only.
