Have never had any issues with Navigon including this recent update, and it's still as good if not better than a stand alone satnav unit. The isolated issues that I have seen mentioned could quite easily be due to "other" reasons and not software related. Anyway, it works fine for me so have a crack at it, just backup the phone as most should prior. Samsung Galaxy SIII
Update I am a paid Navigon Australia customer with all the paid application options. Each time I launch the app I receive a pop up notification stating there is a 500mg download which includes HD maps but upon selecting this download the application indicates my maps are up to date with no additional downloads available! 😕
Issues to fix I generally would give this a 5 star its the only navigational app i use and do love it... but recently i am having lots of issues, when I open and search for addresses it wants to close and restart, this happens 4 times before it works. Please fix. Being used on Samsung Galaxy Note 4 with this issue. I also have this on Xperia Z4 Tab without issue after having to purchase full package again.
Waste of money! I paid to get add ons for the app I had and now you're saying it's no longer supported on Samsung phones and to get a new Navigon app that actually works on my phone I have to pay a further $40?! You've got to be joking?? Anyone who bought add ons and extras for the 'discontinued' Navigon app should either be refunded or given some sort of code to be able to get the new app for free.
Does not even let you set starting point in demo mode So, I reinstalled to compare with Google Maps. I recalled it was very picky with addresses as they have to be exact (still true), but at least I recalled navigation did require GPS only and no data. Well, I was wrong. The last three times it was unable to calculate the route without data. If you get a rerouting with data off: game over. Plus: difficult to navigate, does not tell you of traffic etc. unless you pay. Impossible to arbitrarily decide starting point by tapping on the map.
Can't use the app anymore I used to love this app and used it all the time as a GPS but recently I opened it and it came up with a notification saying 'this service is no longer available' and that I had to buy the premium Navigation (which is $30). I used to use this app all the time but I don't want to pay for the premium Navigation. (I have a Samsumg Note 3)
