This navigation app is my "when all else fails" navigation app. Because it doesn't require a connection other than gps to operate, I can always depend on Navigon with my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 cell phone. The feature of having maps physically installed on my device without the need to preplan and save maps such as required by Google, sets this mapping app above all others as the most reliable. Navigon finally updated this app with the ability to easily type or speak in a destintation. It now can begin to compete with Google and other mapping programs. In my opinion, Navigon cannot compete with Waze's real time crowd sourced marking of things like potholes, police locations, redlight cameras, and other important points. Because of this, I normally use Waze. Other than that, Navigon is more accurate and as said before, can operate without any cell coverage or wifi coverage. I do recommend this app to others.
Best for offline use Has the edge over copilot and I don't have to pay for other devices, one price fits all.I've been using this for many years.thanks navigon
Update is a major step forward Update is great just work out some bugs to allow it to run more smoothly even without data connection and it will be on par with its iPhone sibling
Cannot download maps Says no SD card when there is one. All other apps see the card fine. Also keeps downloading same files in a loop, would not start.
Can no longer get voice guidance output on phone speaker with Ford sync with phone audio selected and media audio NOT selected under Bluetooth. Please fix.
Worst route planning available Absolutely horrid directions. This app has waste hours of my life giving misguided directions.
