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.

Could not do the job on a simple route to town
I'm going on a trip to California next month. I plan to explore some areas that probably won't have cell service, let alone data. I didn't want to lug along a GPS unit so I thought I'd use my phone and I need a program that stores maps offline. This program seemed promising but wow, it's got issues.
First, my street address doesn't exist. It exists on other mapping services so it's not like it can't be found. Secondly it does bizarre routing. I tried to select a location about 10 miles away and it turned it into an 18 mile trip. At one point during my trip it attempted to add a detour to an intersection that was a 1/4 mile away-straight ahead.
If I can't trust it to do a simple route with 4 turns, how can I trust it in an area I don't know? I've requested a refund.
I did like that I could download only the states I need, even over a data connection if needed. The interface is klunky but none of these GPS apps (or real GPS) ever seem to get that right. The graphics were fine and the voice guidance was very clear even if it did nag me about speeding when I was driving the right speed.
It would have been nice if they had some sort of trial version so I could check it out before making the purchase.
Given that this is a German company maybe their European maps are better?
Apple popped this up as my previous review from years ago and now it’s fixed. "I realize this may be more challenging: why can't I put in an address in normal order: 123 street name, town name?” This removes a major irritation. I need off line navigation, so Navigon is important to me.
Better than most of the apps I’ve tried in showing you what to expect. Showing which lanes to be in for one. But the other day it was rather challenged on a five street intersection where I needed to take the second right (which was almost straight ahead, maybe 15° turn). The first right was a very hard right. The only way to figure out where we were supposed to go was study the main map display which isn’t what one what’s to do in the middle of LA traffic.
Best in Market
I’ve used Navigon for several years, now, and worked with both Apple and Google maps.
The new one-line address entry fixes the only complaint I’ve ever had with the software - it’s now much easier to enter your destination. Navigon works without an active cell connection, has far more accurate maps than Apple, and an interface that helps with picking the right highway lane, avoiding congestion and even catching yourself inadvertently speeding, if you like. This is BY FAR the best navigation software available for the iPhone. Period.
