    Great app. Has the most prompt traffic updates, the most accurate voice navigation, and the best level of detail and accuracy of maps. But for $$, it still re routes to primary roads that are worse than the highway (even though I sat in the same re route construction for 30 min just the day before), the daytime 3D panorama UI needs to be updated with more distinct route ribbon denotation, the reality view pro often doesn't show all the lanes (!), the POI and address searches need retooled and man does this app use battery and heat my ICON up!! Nonetheless, with Google Waze heading to oblivion, this app does have accurate traffic for the most part and its maps and voice navigation are great! PLEASE continue to upgrade this app, it is a fantastic one!!

    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.
