Version 2.1 of Navigon’s family of navigation apps for iPhone and iPad launched Tuesday morning. The update includes a new Google Street View function—familiar to users of Google Maps—so that users can see what a neighborhood and destination look like before they arrive. The goal? You won’t accidentally shoot past your destination because you failed to recognize it.
The updated app also features a “manual route blocking” feature, allowing users to more easily plot detour routes on their trip by manually tracing a path around streets and roads along the way are currently closed.
Finally, there’s a new in-app purchase option: Spend $6 and you can enable Navigon’s new cockpit function, which tracks the speed, g-forces, and other data that a vehicle experiences during the user’s journey—offering users a snapshot of their driving habits.
The upgrades apply to the $30 Navigon USA and $40 Navigon North America apps, as well as other regionally focused apps provided by the company. The apps are compatible with devices running iOS 4.3 or later.
