NAVIGON unveils smartphone navigation apps

NAVIGON AG, a provider of mobile phone on-board
navigation, announced the second generation of its navigation apps for Android
devices and the iPhone will be available this fall.

The new versions redefine core elements of smartphone
navigation, including an industry first approach to map management and updates,
an even more effortless and intuitive user interface, and new features not
found in any other navigation app.

Current Android and iPhone users are eligible for free
upgrades to the new versions. In addition, NAVIGON is making its successful
navigation app available for Windows Phone 7 later this year.

Over the last two years, we’ve continuously added new
features to our navigation apps, transforming them into the most feature-rich
smartphone GPS apps available,” said Gerhard Mayr, vice-president of worldwide
mobile phones and new markets, NAVIGON.

For our new generation of apps, we went back to the
drawing board to see how we could elevate smartphone navigation to the next
level. Feedback from our users suggests that a better way to manage and update
maps and a more intuitive user interface are top priorities,” Mayr added.
