Navigon updates iPhone app with new features

Navigon has announced that it has updated its app for the iPhone with some new features. The navigation application now is at version 1.8 and offers new NAVTEQ Maps and Traffic Check function. The new update also adds a pair of new features that you buy via in-app purchases.

The new features are an at-a-glance traffic gauge and a new NAVTEQ map. Both of the purchases the prices of the purchases reduced by up to $15 each until April 28. The 1.8 update brings to the existing app a new reality scanner that uses augmented reality to identify destinations up close. The user just points their iPhone at the building and icons will appear on the screen telling the user what the locations are.

The update also adds safety camera locations with red light and speed cameras listed and a new traffic check function. The safety camera listing is also an in-app purchase for $4.99. The new updates sound interesting.
