NAVIGON had few important announcements ready for the Mobile World Congress, with its iOS and Android apps getting important updates.
The iPhone version of the application will introduce the Google Street View feature later this Spring, providing users with a street-level image of their destination before starting a route. As for the Android app, it will get the Active Lane Assistant to help drivers prepare to make an upcoming exit or turn by showing them an animated lane map complete with arrows and actual road geometry. Moreover, the forthcoming update will include a NAVIGON Widget (from where certain functions of the app will be accessible), Bluetooth support for voice announcements, and a Traffic Check function, which is an easy to read at-a-glance gauge graphic that appears after route calculation alerting drivers of traffic conditions.
But wait, that’s not all. NAVIGON will also release its navigation app on more devices, including Bada-powered Samsung Wave 3 and Cisco Cius business tablet (soon). Navigon for Bada will be out later in the summer through Samsungs Apps store, with the North America and Australia/New Zealand versions costing $49.95 and the European version – 49.95 EUR. On the other hand, Cisco Cius users will be able to download NAVIGON “shortly” from the Cisco AppHQ.
