I was so wanted to like this!
I wanted this because I am able to drag a route but that's all I like about it. The way you 'navigate' thru the program just doesn't make sense. I would it like if it would start on a main menu of some sort, be easy to find the routes I have created and saved, saving a route is not easy. You have to go thru about four steps to get to the main menu, some steps still don't make sense to me. Adding a waypoint to the route is easy. It's not very intuitive.

Very good navigation system, I need it for delivering multiple routes but only allows 24 entries and no more than one saved route
Update September 2016 it takes about 10-20 minutes to figure out the latest update. Getting the "work" quick link configured was a little confusing and frustrating and could be much improved with a couple of prompts. Clicking the check mark is NOT the intuitive next-step as the software guys think.
I do prefer the former home/start page. I will get used to the map as an opener. Overall the changes in this rev are okay and will be second nature after a couple of uses. They are not that bad. I regularly send myself copies of favorites..that way reloading them is easy if they are lost. In this upgrade all favorites and routes updated fine. This update corrected the turn-by-turn omission of the previous rev.
It is still the best navigation app of any.
Update...April 2016. I just purchased NA FreshMaps XL and am pleased with it all. I have been a Navigon user for about 5 years and believe it to be the best. The features that separate it from others are the maps being on-board, routing, mostly easy way to save favorites, graphic display and reliability. I have used other navigation apps but prefer Navigon each time.
I used Navigon in Italy last year and it was flawless in every instance...tiny streets in Menaggio, along the autostrada, through and around Milan, the mountains of north...it was totally reliable. Others in our group used another product and had problems. One of which took them into Switzerland.
Currently, the turn-by-turn is not working. I am confident it will be corrected soon.
I continue to rate it highest of navigation apps. I am glad it is available.
Update on 2.1- I had the same problems with all maps properly loading. I contacted Garmin and they quickly fixed the problem. I give them a lot of credit for being responsive and having an efficient customer service operation. Chris and Charles in their CS dept took care of the issue and were very good in followup. Those users that have this issue should simply call Garmin and connect with the operation that takes care of Navigon mobile issues. That action will solve the problem. (I don't know why people expect complex apps to be 100% failure proof. Yes, it can be frustrating, but it is part of life.).
I do like 2.1. The biggest improvement to me is that it loads much faster...less than 10 secs, and generally about 6 secs. I also like street view options at the destination level.
Navigon mobile continues to be the best navigation map in any platform. I give Garmin a lot of credit in that they have maintained that high quality and usefulness.
Update on 2.0.1 - I have to hand it to Navigon. They listened and responded with a very quick 2.0.1 update and put iPod control back in and addressed the map update issue, too. That is why this remains the best GPS app available.
2.0 is a very nice upgrade. I've been using navigon for about one year and am very happy with it. I can only compare it to a Nuvi and in that comparison it wins hands down. A couple of points about all the yelling about maps in most reviews. 1- free maps were never "promised." 2- maps were refreshed when I upgraded to 2.0 and therefore I'm set for quite a while. Also, map management is much better now by loading and unloading maps as needed. The UI is improved and cleaner. Map scaling in and out is improved. There is no loss of favorites...just close it completely and when you reopen all favorites return. Sorting favorites is easy by using the edit button and then by dragging using the sort icon on the right of the favorite you want to move.
I think a lot of complaints are from those that have not bothered to learn how navigon works. It takes a little time but it is worth it. For instance, using "traffic" and auto reroutimg around delays has saved me countless hours in and around NY, NJ, DC, Baltimore - it works very well. The block function is very handy for routing around delays and detours that navigon doesn't know about.
POIs are pretty good once you know how they are set up. I use them regularly.
The SOS buttons are very good.
The one thing that can be improved is searching for an address. It is awkward.
Finally, a gps is not the answer to every travel need you may encounter. You still need to know directions and N, S, E and W, and how to use a map. If you are traveling you also need a travel guide.
But Navigon is a winner.
