Hey guys good news, I just read on Navigon’s facebook page that they are working on a car kit as well, and they will be implementing traffic info in an update passed 1.2.

Excellent, although the sooner the better! Hopefully it will be just as ful featured as the tom tom but be slightly cheaper too...


Traffic and 7 digit postcode is exactly what I am after in addition to the 1.2

not so sure about that 7 digit postcode... i mailed recently and they didn't know when they would implement it.

TTS is coming in 1.2, awaiting approval now. zeeflyboy is talking about what will come after. ;)

Traffic is the biggest thing on my wish list, but I hope you guys in the UK get full postcode support soon.

Traffic and choosing an alternate route (or being able to avoid a particular route). I'd really like to be able to pick a route the way Google Maps works on the desktop (drag and drop route). I find this very helpful when I want to bypass certain roads.

Well since tomom has pushed back there car kit release date, it would not be funny if navigon came out with one before tomtom releases...lol

Navigon FTW!!!

I sure hope the car kit can handle iphones in cases...to me that is one of the disadvantages to the TomTom one.
