A couple of months ago we took a look at the Navigon Mobile Navigator for the iPhone . After a couple years in absence, due to the focus on the Personal Navigation Systems, Navigon has come back to the Windows Phone Market. Navigon also released a version for the Android platform.
Some key feature of the Navigon Mobile Navigator for Windows Phone are:
- Reality View Pro (on devices with landscape format support) displays photo realistic 3D views with actual road signs and lane guidance for virtually every highway interchange and exit drivers will encounter.
- Lane Assistant Pro Helps drivers prepare to make an upcoming exit or turn by providing a lane map complete with arrows and actual road geometry.
- Text-To-Speech announces street names in addition to turn-by-turn directions.
- Speed Assistant with adjustable audio-visual warning.
- Day & Night Mode for map display.
- Direct Access allows navigation to contacts saved in the phone’s address book.
- Route Planning.
- Branded Points of interest.
- 2D and 3D map view.
- Automatic switch between Landscape and portrait mode.
- Intelligent address entry.
- Real signpost display
- GPS simulation in tunnels.
In the first video I will give you an impression how the Navigon Mobile Navigator 7 runs on the LG eXpo Windows Phone.
The video below (no sound) will show you the start up time and all the possible screenshots you want to see. In these screenshots you can see the many possible settings and functions the Navigon Mobile Navigator has for the Windows Phones platform.
The demo was done on the HP iPAQ Glisten with a smaller resistive AMOLED touchscreen is 2.5″ with QVGA 320×240 resolution. I hopefully will get a demo set-up soon using the LG eXpo we earlier reviewed.
When installing the application through your desktop you have the option to install different language voices, including the Text To Speech voices (TTS) and different maps.
The Screenshots below are from the Navigon Mobile Navigator 7 on a Android Phone.
As with any other Nnavigon product, the software is designed with a professional looking, easy to use User Interface. The platform is now available on Personal Navigation Devices, iPhone’s, Windows Phones and Android Phones. My experiences on all these platforms are similar. Navigon is one of the top navigation software’s on the market.
The Navigon Mobile Navigator 7 is now available and on sale at PocketGearfor $68.36 from $89.00 until February 14th and is equipped with maps of North America (US, Canada, Hawaii and Puerto Rico)
