    Has anyone found any issues with the latest update to Navigon for iphone?
    Have iphone 5, and connecting in my car through Jabra Tour...it previously worked reasonably well except sometimes the directions would get a little chopped (ie. Turn right in _ _ _ _ miles)...but in their latest update they mentioned "improvements" to bluetooth...it seems they may have inadvertently caused some new problems...now after almost every spoken line from Navigon, the voice says "CALL ENDED". This NEVER happened previously, and it seems whatever alteration was made to bluetooth handling has caused this.

    Anyone else find this?
    ...I love Navigon on iphone, but this bug is awful!
    Thanks!

    Navigon never worked with the built-in BT on my 2011 Nissan Murano...I had to settle for the iPhone's (4S) speaker output. Phone calls worked fine, but no Navigon voice output through the car audio.

    With the latest update, Navigon is working great through the car audio system - I've used it a couple times and haven't had any instances of the of cut-off commands or call ended as you describe below.

    Navigon with Bluetooth

    I'm experiencing exactly the same problem with my Jabra earpiece. Ended up switching to Co-Pilot... works fine. It's a shame as I much prefer the Navigon App.

    I'm using a bluetooth to FM transmitter with Navigon that I previously had no problems with... until Navigon decided to "improve" its audio features. The delay in connection now is so bad that it either cuts off the navigating voice altogether or reverts to the internal speaker, despite it being set to use bluetooth. What a mess.

    Sent a very angry email to Navigon and asked them to kindly stop tinkering with things that weren't broken to begin with.

    BTW, you can contact Garmin support regarding the issues with bluetooth on Navigon here:

    https://support.garmin.com/support/searchSupport/escalateForm.htm

    In the product listing select: Mobile Apps and Navigation---> Phone Applications---> Navigon Apps

    Hopefully enough people will complain that they'll resolve the bugs here.

    I got a response yesterday, have to give them props for providing much better responsive support than Navigon did:

    Since they've acknowledged and know about the issue I'm hoping the bugs will be cleaned up in the next update. :D

    great to hear you got a response! I filled out the feedback form...
    this is about as responsive as you could ask for...great!....I'm still a big supporter of Navigon....It has many features which make it superior over any other GPS app for iOS I've found....now if I they could just improve the traffic data! :)

    I have this exact same problem running navigon on my iPhone4 with i0S 6.1.3 through a Jabra Cruise2.
    I updated my i0S software at same time, so thought it was an Apple problem related to bluetooth issues with i0s6.1.3 (which is giving me grief with other things). Gave them a blast via their site.
    The Navigon app (which ive had since day of release and recommended to many), is impossible to use since the last navigon update. Will try running with music, but not convenient as I usually listen to the radio.
    Glad to have at least discovered the cause of the problem. Thank you to those here for that.
    Time to go vent my spleen over at Navigon sites (and maybe a slight appology to Apple, over at theirs) :)

    Did you update to the latest Navigon? A new version came out 2 or 3 days ago.

    I have now. Thanks for the tip :)
    Switching to default fixes the problem, so all good again for me.
    Thanks.
