NAVIGON is a handy navigation app for your Windows Phone. One of the keys features (and appeal) to NAVIGON is the app's downloadable maps that reduces your dependency on a data connection while on the road. NAVIGON was recently updated to bring a trio of new features to the table.
First up is Traffic Check. Traffic Check will inform drivers of current traffic conditions with an easy to read graphic. The graphic gauge indicates traffic conditions with a green, yellow or red field based on the conditions.
Next up is Bing integration. Integrated with Bing Maps, users can now navigate to addresses they find on Bing Maps. NAVIGON will appear as an app option in Bing that will send the address to NAVIGON. From there, NAVIGON will generate turn by turn directions from your current location to the address. This makes finding and address and generating directions a little easier if NAVIGON is your navigator of choice.
NAVIGON FreshMaps is a new feature that will keep your maps more up to date. NAVIGON will provide users with the latest map available at the time of download. But for those who want to stay more current with their maps, FreshMaps will provide the latest maps every three months over a two year period. FreshMaps pulls the map updates from NAVTEQ to ensure the most accurate mapping possible. The service does come at a cost though. FreshMaps will cost you $39.99 but will be offered at a reduced price of $24.99 until August 30, 2012.
Overall, the update does bring some nice features to NAVIGON. The traffic check will help you navigate around town and the Bing integration makes building routes a lot easier. We'll say that FreshMaps is a nice feature but not for everyone.
There are two versions of NAVIGON available over on the Windows Phone Marketplace. NAVIGON USA is currently running $49.99 and has downloadable maps for all fifty States. NAVIGON Europe is currently running $99.99 and has downloadable maps for all of Europe. Unfortunately, there isn't a trial version available for either version.
