We all love Google Maps, and the wonderful free things we get from it, but let’s be honest – it’s not always the most accurate. Haunted by the Beta tag, we trudge on in hopes that it will one day be perfect. For some, it’s worse, nigh unusable. Solutions have come and gone, but really it’s the standalone GPS guys who have come to my rescue time and again. Standalone guys like the team at Navigon. It’s not cheap, in fact these are some of the most expensive apps in the Market. At $59.99, however, it’s still a whole lot better than paying for and then carrying around a separate GPS unit. In the spirit of the most insane shopping day in the US, Navigon has announced special pricing in the Android Market on Black Friday!
MobileNavigator, Navigon’s app for Android and iOS provides a few key features that come from the experience of being a GPS company. They store the maps on the phone, utilize the GPS receiver instead of hybridizing the connection between the GPS and the Cell towers, and they bring with them a host of features from their award-winning GPS line. Live traffic updates, traffic cam access, and a few more. The app will be $39.99 all day Black Friday, so grab it while it’s cheap(er)!
