Best iPhone GPS Navigation App

With Apple finally giving the green signal for turn-by-turn navigation apps in its App Store for the iPhone OS 3.0 and above, the most practical feature of GPS is now available for users of this phone. While there are a handful of GPS applications offering turn-by-turn navigation features for the iPhone, Navigon’s Mobile Navigator is one of the better apps, having been ported from the popular GPS units from Navigon.

The developers have not only ported the app to the iPhone platform but have also tweaked the menu and interface to blend in perfectly with the iPhone interface. The app goes beyond the impressive interface with its synchronization of contacts into the navigation app, allowing the users to route to the address stored in the phonebook directly from the application.

With navigation features comprising of voice guidance (unfortunately, no speaking of street names), 2D and pseudo-3D maps (using NAVTEQ map data), lane assist, tons of POIs, and much more, it makes it a complete navigation app. Further, users can fine-tune the app to display the fastest or shortest route, avoid tolls, home address, day/night map, etc., adding on to the already impressive featureset.

While the app is impressive with its exhaustive featureset and speed of response, it leaves out one of the most sought after navigation feature: live traffic feed, limiting the usability of the app, especially in the traffic-intensive metros; however, the developers have promised to append this feature in the next update.

The navigation app is priced at US$99.99 and can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store.
