    Top of the line navigation app for WP. Has the most prompt and accurate traffic updates and good traffic rerouting, the most accurate voice navigation, and the best level of detail and accuracy of maps - even vs the new great Sygic. But for $$, it still re routes to primary roads that are worse than the highway, driving UI seriously needs to be updated (3D blobby and undetailed, panoramic too detailed and way too narrow route ribbon, text on the speed limit, speed, time, etc are WAY TOO SMALL); the POI and address searches really need retooled into one common search and man does this app use battery and heat my ICON up!! Nonetheless, with Google Waze heading to oblivion and with all other apps not having as good routing/traffic, this app does shine - even for the $! PLEASE continue to upgrade this app, Android and iOS just got a nice update in early April, lets hope we're next! Please don't forget us!!!

    So when will background navigation be possible for Windows phone?
  • by Cal 2/14/2015
    Here app started crashing with the latest update for me. I purchased Navigon back on WP 7.5 so I thought id try it again. I'm really liking the experience now compared to Here (when it was not crashing). I don't have alot of time yet with it but I think it will definitely be my primary go to app for Nav! More options and clearer instructions. Thank you Navigon app team for continuing to make a great Windows Phone app!

    Has some nice features but doesn't know left from right half the time. Map shows left, voice says right

    Been using Navigon since WP7.5. I still feel it's the best navigation app in the store. It's not the cheapest but it is the most feature rich and accurate.

    Perfect, after full install. Do the full install via WiFi unless you have unlimited data plan. After install is complete never need to use data plan for directions, it will take a little over 3Gig of space with all the extra pay add on's.

    Comparing Navigon to Nokia Drive, Navigon's interface is archaic and needs a major overhaul, especially the search. The maps in Navigon apparently use Here maps, but the graphical maps in Navigon are soft, not optimized for HD like Nokia Drive. However, Navigon's major advantage over Nokia is the multiple route choices, arguably better routing, and most important for me, accurate and clear lane guidance, essential in the increasingly expensive toll roads and bridges of New York and Jersey cities. In a perfect world, I wish for Nokia Drive's interface and map renderings, with Navigon's routing logic and choices and its excellent lane guidance.

    Doesn't run under lock screen. Confuses north and south & east and west directions

    Nice to not use bandwidth for maps, but traffic is HORRIBLE. It use to be tolerable, but now it never gives me traffic conditions for the Baltimore area. If I look at all traffic in the area, there are a few incidents listed, but I could be stopped on the freeway and it insinuates everything is fine. I even bought the HUD, which I I've, but now without traffic, the app is almost useless to me.
