Garmin, makers of Navigon, the popular GPS application for iOS, has been updated to version 2.1. With this increased functionality, Navigon has also dropped in price to $29.99. While Apple’s new iMaps in iOS 6.0 may give Garmin a run for it’s money, dropping the price in advance of the new OS’s release may certainly sell a few more copies during the summer travel season. Let’s take a look at the new features in Navigon 2.1.
What’s New in Version 2.1
– Google Street View screen of the destination when indicating and when reaching the destination (not available in all cities)
– ‘Custom route’ enables manual blocking of route sections with just a tap of your finger
– ‘Cockpit’ displays extended information such as g-value, altitude, compass, roll and tilt angles, and much more (available as In-App purchase)
– Improved retina display support for the new iPad
– Faster map display – Faster startup time of the app
– Improved map manager
Navigon from Garmin is available in the iTunes store.
