MobileNavigator: iPhone GPS Navigation for a Single Upfront Fee Now in AppStore

Navigon has released the long awaited iPhone OS 3.0 feature as their turn-by-turn GSP navigation solution, MobileNavigator (North American edition) is now available in iTunes.

The software is one of the first of its kind (with G-Maps and Sygic Mobile maps – thanks commenters) to have a one-time charge ($69.99) rather than a monthly fee levied by AT&T’s software, and others.

MobileNavigator offers turn-by-turn directions from a rather cool-sounding lady. The company promises an update with more features like multiple destination planning, addition POIs to the iPhone’s AddressBook, additional views, etc.

For now, the app has the following features:

  • Reality View Pro
  • Lane Assistant Pro
  • Speed Assistant
  • Day & Night Mode
  • Direct Access
  • Branded POIs and POIs along the route
  • 2D and 3D map view.
  • Automatic switch between portrait and landscape format.
  • Intelligent address entry.
  • Real signpost display.

MobileNavigator can be downloaded from App Store for iPhone [$69.99 on sale – iTunes link]

Readers should note that TomTom’s hardware/software solution should be available on the iPhone (and iPod touch?) by the end of summer.  Interestingly, you can also get a full, stand-alone TomTom One for $48 which makes these software only versions seem more than a little pricey (hint: wait a few months for price wars to begin).  We have to admit, however, that this one looks great.
