Even though Navigon's Windows Phone app, NAVIGON, and the NAVIGON Traffic4all app are already available over at the Marketplace, we've received official notice from Navigon on the release of these two apps. Even though the release is dated yesterday and there's not much new in the press release, there is one little blurb about pricing we thought was important enough to follow up on.
According to the press release, the $29.99 price tag on the U.S. version of NAVIGON is an introductory price. The introductory price will run until 11/15/2011 when the price will jump to $49.99. We are trying to get clarification from Navigon if the $69.99 price for the European version is discounted as well.
As we mentioned earlier, the Traffic4All is a free, ad-supported app or you can pay $1.49 to remove the ads.
We're still working on a full review of NAVIGON and should have that posted in the next day or so. We'll try to give you a better picture on how good or bad NAVIGON performs plus how it compares to a few other navigation apps that are available for your Windows Phone.
In the meantime, you can find the U.S. version of NAVIGON here in the Windows Phone Marketplace, the European version of NAVIGON here and NAVIGON Traffic4all here in the Marketplace. You can read the full presser from Navigon after the break.
Update: Just got tipped by Antonino over at Plaffo.com that the European pricing is an introductory offer as well. Up until 11/15/2011 the price for the European version will be 59.49 Euros. After the 15th, the price jumps to 84.99 Euros.
