Navizon Refunds and Development Commitment



The makers of Navizon for the iPhone, which provides GPS-like functionality to your iPhone, have updated their blog and stated that

- If you purchased Navizon and cannot run it on the 1.1.1 iPhone, you will get a refund.
- They are still developing for the iPhone and plan a new version shortly (for 1.0.2 iPhones, presumably).

Navizon was previously featured and provided positioning based on a cell-tower and wifi hotspot database. The application is available for 15 days, and costs $24.99 to continue using beyond that.

Now if only I can get Apple to refund the rest of my $500
Or at least make an SDK, or even sell a game through iTunes.
Im about to call Apple and be like:
"Um the update bricked my phone"
apple: "i doesnt turn on?"
"No, the gaming machine part doesn't work anymore, now all i can do with it is reload macrumors and check my mail every 5min"

OT: Did anyone ever get this software to work anyway? Nobody I know has had their area mapped.

We can all thank iFuntastic for ruining it for everyone. Damn bricktastic killed more users than a bad batch of dope.

Yes, works great for me... I haven't bought a license yet, but I intend to. (Downgraded to 1.0.2).

And cheers to them offering refunds for 1.1.1 users; its rare to find class acts like this in the technology world!

Probably took a cue from Andrew and the folks at Ambrosia.

i never got navizon to work either, and i'm in a pretty teeming metropolis (l.a.) so i saw no reason it couldn't find cell or wifi sites to locate. i dumped it from the phone before 1.1.1 anyway.

they should get it to work though, would be very useful.

i didn't realize that you had to pay for Navizon. glad to see that they are refunding for those with 1.1.1, but hopefully they'll get it working with 1.1.1

Why by this product?

Why woudl you even think about buying this application when it barley works?

if they could get a better solution or even get a BT GPS receiver to work then yes buy it but WIFI/GPRS GPS is by far worth spending money on.

I used this application and as a freeware/gimmick product sure its perfect but to pay for it. Not a chance in hell....

Has Ambrosia offered a refund since their software iToner no longer works on 1.1.1?
