A few days ago we shared that NAVIGON USA for Windows Phone 8 was available at the Windows Phone Store. Well now NAVIGON Europe has made the jump to Windows Phone 8.
The NAVIGON apps are feature rich navigation apps that includes user selected downloadable maps. This allows you to travel without depending on a data connection for your maps. It also helps save on storage space in that you only download the maps you need.
Just as with the NAVIGON USA app, version 4.5 of NAVIGON Europe has all the features of the Windows Phone 7 version save the Text-to-Speech feature which will be added in an upcoming update.
Just to recap some of NAVIGON's features, they include:
- Traffic Live
- NAVIGON MyRoutes
- Active Lane Assistant
- Speed Assistant
- Safety Camera
- Weather Live
- Extended Pedestrian Navigation
- Destination entry with coordinates
- Can be used in portrait and landscape format
- Automatic day and night mode
- Direct access and navigation to contacts saved in the smartphone’s address book
- Take Me Home function with a single click
- Route planning function
NAVIGON Europe is running $99.99 and NAVIGON USA should run $49.99. Keep in mind that NAVIGON Europe covers maps for forty European countries. The U.S. version covers all fifty States but not Canada. You also have the Latest Map Guarantee from NAVIGON that guarantees you have the latest maps (provided by NAVTEQ) available on your Windows Phone.
Thanks, Diego, for the tip!
