NAVIGON Reaches Two Million App Users Worldwide

Celebrates With 50 Percent Off for All MobileNavigator Apps for Four Days Only

HAMBURG, GERMANY--(Marketwire - February 10, 2011) - NAVIGON AG, a leading provider of mobile phone on-board navigation, today announced it has now over two million smartphone navigation app users worldwide. In celebration of the important milestone, NAVIGON reduces the price on each version of MobileNavigator Android, iPhone and WindowsMobile by 50 percent for four days. A regional iPhone US version starts at $14.99. Current users can take advantage of the promotion with prices for In App Purchases Traffic Live, Panorama View 3D and Zagat Survey for MobileNavigator iPhone 25 percent off. MobileNavigator turns smartphones and tablets into navigation solutions that work like standalone units.

"Our two million users clearly show that premium navigation apps for smartphones are in high demand. Consumers realize the benefits of a premium on-board navigation app like MobileNavigator with all its dedicated driving features, such as traffic rerouting, lane and speed guidance 3D views and more," said Gerhard Mayr, vice-president worldwide mobile phone business, NAVIGON. "Our 50 percent off promotion is an ideal opportunity to take advantage of all these features at a very attractive price, especially for all the new Verizon iPhone customers." A benefit of NAVIGON's on-board navigation app on the Verizon network is that it allows users to still receive directions while on the phone, since a data connection is not necessary. NAVIGON MobileNavigator carries the complete map material within the phone. The app relies on the GPS receiver, independent from a cell or wireless signal, providing directions and recalculations even when no cell phone signal is available.

NAVIGON MobileNavigator is available for Android smartphones and tablets, iPhone, iPad and WindowsMobile smartphones. The Android version features an industry-first Reality Scanner function that projects points of interest icons directly onto a camera view, helping to find POIs nearby. NAVIGON MobileNavigator* for iOS is the first universal navigation app of a major GPS company that runs natively on the iPhone and the iPad. Users with MobileNavigator installed can use the app on both devices without extra charges. It utilizes the iPad's large display and user interface with a higher resolution, and new menus. Route planning is convenient on the iPad, showing a large scrollable, multi-touch map to select destinations in simple taps.
