NAVIGON, the first professional navigation solution for the iPhone available now

image We know TomTom is coming but we don’t know when it will be here and Navigon have beaten them to the punch with a proper Turn by Turn application for iPhone 3G and 3GS running the 3.0 Firmware.

It only carries European maps at the moment from Navteq and no mention if this will be expanded to other parts of the world in the future but if your desperate for a full GPS iPhone solution you can get it now.

I have personally used both platforms in the past on Windows Mobile devices and have been happy with both so would not consider this to be an inferior platform in any way.

Available from the App Store priced at £54.99 including all the European maps and it seems like you have to install them all which equates to a whopping 1.65 Gigs, really glad I got the 32 Gig 3G S yesterday 🙂

More details after the break with complete map details and languages.

Turn your iPhone into a first-rate navigation system with MobileNavigator. Try the feature for yourself and enjoy the excellent user control and superior design that allow simple and intuitive operating. The application includes the latest map material from the market leader NAVTEQ and can be used without an Internet connection, which is of enormous benefit abroad, for example, as no extra charges are incurred. With MobileNavigator you can turn your iPhone into an equally handy and convenient route guidance system.
