Navigon MobileNavigator Europe + North America 1.4.0 arrives with the first snow today
Navigon MobileNavigator Europe + North America 1.4.0 arrives with the first snow today

The first snow is falling, the holidays are starting and as a consequence there will be lot of traffic on the snowy slippery European roads in the coming weeks. Did you change to winter tires already? Accidents and big traffic jams are likely to happen, so make sure to pack along with your skis, your iPhone charged with Navigon MobileNavigator and its fantastic traffic feature.

Like reported earlier, several other local EU editions are already in version 1.4.0, and the full Europe edition was the last one still stuck in version 1.3.0.

From this morning on, it is finally possible for you premium payers to upgrade too. Just as a reminder, here is the complete list (with my personal comments) of the 13 new features and 1 update.

When there is a feature(s) still not in the app that you eagerly want please drop me a comment!

New features

1. Enhanced Pedestrian Navigation (This was needed, I hope they could also reduce the battery consumption in this mode).
2. Google Local Search (must have feature nowadays, setting new standard for GPS apps)

6. Manual zooming-in 2D and 3D while navigating (finally!)
7. Your favorites being displayed on the map (nice to have)
8. Country in at border crossings (Like Sygic has since their first edition)
9. Music and Audio-book mode switch in iPod playback (actually you chould be surprised how many people listen to AudioBooks on the road)
10. Contacts can be added as interim destinations (can be handy for sales people on the go, I guess)
11. Using contact groups in the phonebook is possible now (?)
12. Faster start up time (always welcome, especially for the 3G owners!)
