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.

Re-routing is poor...!!! Updates stop app working...!!!
I have had this app over 5 years and at first thought the Traffic Alert Live function was great, but when I used it the last time it directed me off a motorway and then back onto it at the next junction...!
Also, when an update requires new files to be downloaded - can you either automatically include the files to be downloaded as well, or at least allow the app to be used without having to download them.
I was caught out yesterday when I opened the app and had no wifi to download and couldn't access the app. Even after I downloaded the files over 4G, I still couldn't access my home address or enter a postcode to get a route - the app was completely unusable...!!!
Took me down the m6 toll, told me to come off due to traffic? 3 miles later put me back on the m6 toll! Annoying... Terrible at re routing due to traffic... Sends me off the motorway... 10 mile diversion to put me back on the motorway again... Had enough of this app. A 6 hour drive ended up taking me 10! Avoid it! I'm buying Tom Tom instead.
Not a bad app, ruined by the pricing
Good search functions and a good, if not the best nav app operationally. Well laid out and a good feature set. I like the hazard warnings (animals, schools etc). It should be good for £29.99.
Once you have got over the initial cost, you are met with a number of in app purchases, in my case traffic and safety warnings (cameras!) which are again, not cheap but that's pretty much your choice. There are others but I don't need them (cockpit, truck etc).
My biggest gripe and the reason for my low score is the maps are out out of date in the version supplied off the App Store (q4 2015). I queried this with navigon after it showed me driving across a field on a piece of road that had been opened for a year. They have said you have to buy freshmaps (at an eye watering £39.99 for 2 yrs). No way, I at least expect the map I have paid for initially to be up to date. Navigon say that you get all the maps in Europe. Big deal. So all told they want nearly £80, otherwise you've got a sat nav that is significantly out of date from day one. No thanks, google maps, Tom Tom, sygic, co-pilot all provide similar offerings with not anywhere near the cost.
I may actually be able to buy a half decent stand alone system.
