NAVIGON announced the release of its MobileNavigator product on the Android platform. It’s the first on-board navigation app from a major navigation company, and NAVIGON is hoping that some of the software’s extras like on-device maps, live traffic, real traffic-sign displays and red light camera locations will help it to compete with the free Google Maps Navigation option.
MobileNavigator will run on devices running Android 1.5 or higher. Google Maps Navigation only works with Android 2.0 or higher. The software requires 1.5GB of storage space and, after a free 30-day trial period, it will be priced at $39.99 for the next two weeks, or $59.99 thereafter. MobileNavigator is available in the Android Market now.
