NAVIGON updated its GPS navigation application for Android devices. There are two new things — cause only one of them is an actual feature — included in this release.
First comes the so called Pedestrian Flashlight function, which means “pedestrians will safely find their way even in the dark,” turning the camera flash on their smartphones into a flashlight. When in the “Enhanced Pedestrian Navigation” mode, users see two arrows: one indicating the direction of travel and the other pointing in the direction of the destination – making things much easier.
And the second new thing is the Android 2.3 Gingerbread support that makes sure even the latest — most of which are still not available — devices can sing along NAVIGON’s app. As I said, at the moment this is important for folks with Google’s Nexus S and pretty much no one else. That however will change in the coming months when we expect to see quite a few Gingerbread-enabled smartphones hitting the market…
UPDATE: Just got a note from Navigon folks. This latest update is still NOT available — it will become available during Q1 2011.
