Nuje, you are correct. I'm with you, running a prepaid Rogers SIM card with no data plan so this app became very attractive from that angle. The install has all the maps, POI etc, it doesn't need any data connection. Very sweet for anyone not sporting a data plan.

I say wait for the Tom Tom version of GPS for the iPhone... I think that one will be way better than this app...

I thought so too, but now I'm not so sure. Text-to-speech and traffic are planned for Navigon according to the chart above.

Here's a good comparison review between TomTom and Navigon. Navigon comes out on top.

I've been using Navigon since I read on this forum and its great, For the price and how well it works with the only thing I can compare it to was my old C550 Garmin unit. I found the the software working with the 3g gps to be spot on right now to the meter. And all I did was use the ipod cable from my radio and listen to where I have to turn. There was no need to watch it while driving.

The bad: (not really, I just miss some features)
-load times : and be a bit slow, don't know if this is the software waiting for a GPS signal ?
- You can't load your own way points , the only thing I miss from using my old garmin, great for known "polica" hang outs esp when your in a city you don't known all too well.
- lack of traffic/delay data, there must be some way, but maybe I'm asking to much


and that's all I have to say , its great piece of software for the iphone.

In the PocketGPSWorld chart (linked above), it mentions that traffic is coming to Navigon in the fall (in addition to text-to-speech) - hopefully it's true. I just wish the street name text was bigger/clearer. Other than that, I'm really happy with it.
