The Windows Phone navigation app GPS Voice Navigation was recently updated to version 4.0. The update brings a handful of new features and improvements that range from a new Windows 8 style redesign to additional language support.
The style design gives GPS Voice Navigation a cleaner, more user friendly feel to it with menu pages that include a Quickstart Page, your favorite locations, recent destinations, a contacts page, and a point of interest page.
The QuickStart Page has options to view the map, find a destination, access the settings and shortcut commands to create a route home (set in the map view), show your trip information and clear your trip.
Additional features included with version 4 include:
- Improved map and search interface
- Options to display points of interest on the map
- Destinations can be pinned to your Start Screen
- Trip pause/resume button added
- Russian language support added
GPS Voice Navigation now has contact integration and if any of your contacts have addresses, they will appear on the Contacts Page for quick access.
Melon Mobile isn't done with adding features to GPS Voice Navigation. Future updates will provide a less restrictive trial mode (limited features instead of the limited route distance); local media integration, and offline maps. A free version is also on the drawing table.
GPS Voice Navigation has always been a nice navigation option for your Windows Phone but with the update, it's better. Which is the goal of any update.
GPS Voice Navigation has spoken turn-by-turn directions and you get to choose from four mapping sources: Google, Bing, Nokia and Mapquest. If you're looking for a navigation app for your Windows Phone, GPS Voice Navigation is worth a try.
The free trial version of GPS Voice Navigation is available but any trips are limited to 20km. The full version is running $6.99 and you can find it here at the Windows Phone Store.
