    I won't get to do the update for a few hours. Would be interested in how long the download takes.

    It's 1.29GB, so that depends entirely on the speed of your connection.

    Too funny! I've been very happy with my selection of Navigon to date. I've had it about two weeks now. I'm looking forward to downloading the update tonight!

    id really like to see how the volume control works with a jailbroken iphone running pandora or slacker in the background. this would be awesome if it lowers the volume of the music in the background. if anyone can test this that would be great!

    For the people that are running the update: if given the chance, would you go with Navigon or iGo?

    The new update looks pretty nice. I haven't played with it much, but here are a couple of things I noticed:

    (1) loads faster
    (2) acquires signal more quickly
    (3) they relocated the info on when you will arrive to the bottom of the screen
    (4) you can show "route options" such as avoid highways - shows as icons whe calculating the route
    (5) you can call POIs
    (6) you can add interim destinations (stops along your route)

    So far - it seems like a nice but minor upgrade.

    The volume lowering function worked for the iPod app only. Tried Slacker and WunderRadio.

    I don't think there could be a way for this to work. Navigon can check the running processes for the iPod app and then lower the iPod volume before an announcement. Can't do that for for apps that are backgrounded.

    you can have either the three options that were available in the top menu bar displayed, or the way it is in the v1

    that's the question I want answered.
    in particular, I have heard complaints that the lack of contrasting colours on the Navigon screen makes it hard to read.
    comments?

    Oh, and it looks like the price cut has been extended. :)

    It now says the price is good until August 31. More time for me to make a decision. :eek:

    Regret to hear tha the roads names are still difficult to read due to the use of non-contrasting colors for background and road names.

    Can someone tell us if they have the ability to simulate the entire trip in this version now, or is it still limited only to the last few meters of the journey?

    I've always found the GPS signal to be very unstable and weak compared to Sygic. I hope this version fixes that problem.

    Downloading now, but can you see the route it has calculated for you in this version? I mean step-by-step which roads it's going to put you on.

    Confirming that it loads faster and acquires signal faster.

    Has anyone had a problem with the POI Filter not saving in Categories Shown? Mine has a mind of its own, often defaulting back to all on. This is incredibly aggravating, considering it was a feature I was looking forward to.
