Navigon 2.0 Lets Users Download Individual State Maps
Navigon has updated its iOS GPS navigation app to include a variety of new features, including the option of downloading U.S. maps state by state.
This can save users up to 1.7 GB of storage space, the size of all of Navigon's maps, which can come in handy for people who use a lot of space. Older versions of Navigon required users to download the entire map data for the area they purchased if they wanted offline access.
After downloading the app, users are able to simply choose which maps they want to upload to their phones.
There is also a new interface that comes with the new version. It offers the possibility of zooming and pinching the map in 3D mode as well as an in-app purchase option for quarterly map updates, Yahoo News reported.
Navigon, a formerly privately held German company, was acquired by GPS giant Garmin in June 2011. The financial details of the acquisition were not disclosed.
Until Nov. 30, all of Navigon's products and in-app purchases will be discounted, with app prices ranging from $29.99 to $39.99, depending on the version. Current Navigon users can upgrade to the latest version of the app at no charge.
