Navigon updates their iPhone GPS Navigation App - Ver 1.4


Navigon announced that they are updating their iPhone App with a new version 1.4 that will be a free update to owners of the previous version. They just recently released the update that offers in-app purchase of traffic services fed by Inrix, and now are adding several cool enhancements.

Google Local Search - adds the ability to find local businesses and great new places to spend money and time.

Coordinate Navigation - Plug in your Lat/Lon coordinates and navigate there. Seems basic - a GPS system navigating to a latitude and longitude, but not all do. I like this feature to drive to a trailhead or campsite.

Pedestrian Navigation - You can now navigate as a "Pedestrian" in an enhanced mode to help you find your way along busy one way streets or through pedestrian only areas. If you have the iPhone 3GS, it will use the built in electronic compass.

In the cool department you will be able to email your own current location to others.

Look for approval in a week or so from Apple and then it will be available in the App store.
