Please note the following:
Positioning your iPhone correctly in the vehicle is very important to ensure optimal GPS reception! We recommend that you use the NAVIGON Design Car Kit for the iPhone, which includes both a designer suction pad holder and a car charger, enabling you to charge your iPhone during the journey. Available from specialist retailers or from the NAVIGON shop directly at www.navigon.com!
Should you experience GPS reception problems with your iPhone, please refer to the FAQ on our website:www.navigon.com.
Allowing GPS to run in the background for extended periods can lead to a significant reduction in battery life.
Whether in the car, by bike or on foot, NAVIGON hopes you have fun navigating.

DO NOT BUY IN APP PURCHASES!!
Used to be excellent, complete garbage now!!
I bought every single feature this app offers-what a waste of $$!!! I want a refund! The map updates NEVER add new streets. Ever. MANY streets that have been added well over 3 years ago are still not showing up in Canada, Toronto ON!! WHY?! To add insult to injury now updating new maps doesn't even work anymore it always reads "waiting". How could they ruin what used to be the best GPS app available? Wish I could get all the $ I invested back. You pay for fresh map updates & they never add new streets that have been built over 3 years ago. That's just terrible!!! Scammers. Also app randomly just crashes while in use in my 128GB iPhone 6S Plus. Annoying.
Used this app succesfully on my ipad mini (with built in cell and gps). I mounted the ipad mini in a modified otterbox case on the handlebar of my harley touring motorcycle, and toured north america with the NA sw version and Europe with the European sw version. I had the ipad wired audio output plugged into my stereo and it played my tunes and interrupted for turn by turn directions and speed warnings. The ipad music control through the app was adequate. The gps and routing was accurate and got me everywhere i wanted to go (although the voice in Europe mixed up right and left turns until a recent update, the visual turn display was correct). It even verbally warned me when i was speeding, or coming up to a permanent red light/radar trap in both NA and Europe. The ipad mini display was large enough for seeing the app features while driving. The summer 2013 sw version couldn't calculate a route of more than a few hundred kms, but the recent sw version update seems to be able to calculate routes much better. I didn't expect to rely on this app when i started touring on my motorcycle, but cant imagine doing it again without this app. Newest Apple watch functionality in this app does not work for me cause apple watch cannot sync with the apple ipad (come on APPLE), just syncs with Iphone. I dont own an Iphone, so this is useless for me. All in all, a great app though.
USED to be a fantastic app...
Local search was EXCELLENT when they were using the Google Api. Now they’re using something called "HERE"… absolutely, unequivocally useless!!!
FIX YOUR SHITTY SEARCH PLEASE!!!
