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.

Bug in My Destination
Just updated again on Dec 8. Hoping the my destination bug is fix. But now all the addresses stored completely gone!! Please fix this!!!!
My destination hangs if there is no wifi or data. I was desperate for couple of times as i have saved all my itinerary in My Destination before my trip where i dont have wifi or cell data. I reply on this app a lot. Please fix this bug.
very good application, acurate and handy. however, some addresses saved in favorite were gone, down to 7. not sure why and in recent tab, sometimes doesn't show all recent entries.
Some of the Addresses in favirites was gone again. Could be the latest update as I updated it just before the trip. Fortunately I have created routes from the faviorites which were still there.
Sometimes it will anounce to make a u turn while there is no need.
Out of Date
Bought this app thinking at first download it would have up to date maps but I was wrong.
My whole subdivision is missing! Looks like I’ll just stick with Google maps.
