NAVIGON Takes Off First: MobileNavigator Now Also Leads the Way on the iPhone Already in June



    HAMBURG, Germany, June 9 /CNW/ - To Turn the iPhone 3G and the
Forthcoming iPhone 3G S Into an Innovative Navigator, you Only Need Two
"ingredients": the New Apple OS 3.0 Operating System and the MobileNavigator
From NAVIGON. By June iPhone Users Will be Able to Turn Their Phones Into a
Handy, Convenient Navigation Device With the Professional Software From
NAVIGON for the First Time.
    Lunch break. Time to eat and a chance to send private emails, make phone
calls and to relax listening to songs from your own playlist. Now and again
checking the status of online bidding, and taking a funny photo of a
colleague. One thing is for sure, there's hardly another smartphone on the
market that makes multitasking so much fun as the iPhone. And soon users will
be able to have themselves navigated from the office to the new Italian
restaurant in town. All that's needed is an iPhone running on the new Apple OS
3.0 operating system - and the MobileNavigator from NAVIGON.
    Before the end of this month iPhone users will be able to kit out their
smartphones with the professional navigation software from App Stores across
the globe. "With the new OS 3.0 operating system, Apple has made the use of
navigation software on the iPhone possible, and NAVIGON has quickly managed to
adapt the MobileNavigator software to the new firmware. The iPhone can now be
transformed into a versatile, fully functional navigator", quotes Egon Minar,
CEO of NAVIGON AG.

    Alternative in the App Store

    When equipped with the MobileNavigator software, the iPhone 3G (with
Apple OS 3.0 operating system) and the iPhone 3G S guide their users safely to
their destination - with updated map material and intelligent navigation.
    The package includes well-known functions such as Reality View Pro, Real
Roadsign Pro, Lane Assistant Pro, Speed Assistant, Day & Night Mode, amongst
others, as well as the option of displaying POIs along the route. With this
range of functions, Mobile Navigator stands out from its competition on the
market - also by the fact that the typical user functions of the iPhone have
been implemented seamlessly in order to make navigation using the iPhone and
NAVIGON software even more enjoyable. If you turn the iPhone 90 degrees, then
the display switches automatically from portrait to landscape view. As well as
this automatic display adjustment, and the intelligent address entry, there is
also the option of navigating directly to an address from saved contacts. If
navigation is interrupted by a telephone call then navigation is resumed
automatically after the call has ended.
    "This allows iPhone users to navigate wherever they are, whenever they
want - conveniently and while on the move," states Egon Minar.
    Within this month MobileNavigator will be available in the international
AppStore where iPhone users can choose between various options. One option is
the LITE Version available for free, with no active route guidance, but with
map material and the possibility to display POIs (points of interest) in the
vicinity. Another option is the full version, which navigates users quickly
and reliably to their destination.
    The prices for the full version will be released by the AppStore at the
launch.
