Navigon has updated its iPhone application, MobileNavigator, with spanking new features. Once you press the “download,” here’s what you’ll get:
- Text-to-speech – the application will now announce street names in addition to turn-by-turn directions. Navigon proudly say they are the first company to do this on the iPhone!
- Access to iPod functions – right from the map, you can access your complete music library. Listening to an audiobook or podcasts is what I do on longer trips.
- Location sharing – you can either send address, point of interest, or a direct link to other MobileNavigator users.
And that’s about it. Kudos to Navigon for keeping its application fresh. North American version of the application could be downloaded from here (AppStore link), whereas if you live elsewhere, you should search for “navigon” in iTunes and take it from there. The price is $89.99, and the update is available free to the existing users.
