Navitel is an offline navigation app that provides maps for Russia and several central and eastern European countries. It is a decent Windows Phone navigation app but limited in its map coverage (maps aren't available for major locations such as the U.S., Canada, the U.K., India, etc.)
The app provides instant routing with customizable route variables like shortest, avoid ferries, and route for car/motorcycle/pedestrian and taking traffic considerations into account. The app features extensive POI database and notification system of places with high attention like speed cams, dangerous roads, radars, etc.
The latest update bumps the app to version 188.8.131.52, and now makes it possible to download navigation maps to an external memory card. The update also adds new 3D views of maps and 3D models of objects in maps making it easier to follow your route. The POI database also gets a nifty update. The petrol stations, cinemas, restaurants, and other POI are now easier to find, as most popular brands are marked in maps and in the program menu with their logos.
Apart from this, there’s new visualization of road lanes, new settings for the speed cam service, and a faster address search and search of nearest places. Some performance tweaks and memory optimization round up this comprehensive update.
Navitel features navigation maps of Albania, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Danmark, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Lithuania, Latvia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Moldova, Norway, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Sweden, Turkey, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan.
There’s a free 30-day trial, and then you’d need to buy individual maps ranging from 12-47 Euros. It’s a tad expensive, even considering that the automatic map updates are free. You can check the map bundles here, and download the app for Windows Phone 7.x and Windows Phone 8 devices from the Windows Phone Store.
