    Supposed to arrive mid October and it's the 22nd now (soon to be the 23rd in Germany where they do the work).

    I'm guessing they've hit some roadblocks and are getting bitten now for prematurely announcing traffic features when they won't make it out on time.

    I believe I read in another thread here that Navigon has submitted the update to Apple. Now we're just waiting on Apple to approve it and post it to the App Store in who knows when we'll actually see it. It could be tomorrow or it could be a month from now.

    I don't believe it has been released to the Apple. I've been following Navigon on Facebook and they said they would post there when it has. I just checked, and I don't see a thing about it being released.

    In the past it's taken Apple up to two weeks to approve these type of things. I'm looking forward to this as well as I'm a big fan of the Navigon software.

    As the info can be found on Navigon Facebook page, Traffic has been submitted for UK only. It should be submitted for North America soon.

    I subscribed to the traffic feature in Copilot and it works great. I'm assuming Navigon's will work in a similar fashion. Until they offer traffic as an add on take a look at Inrix. It's a free app and it gives traffic info and has been very accurate in my area.

    Neither the UK nor the European versions (which cover the UK) have traffic yet _for_ the UK, although this new European version does have traffic for quite a few countries. Hoping that this isn't an ominous omission and that they will indicate when this will be available as an in-app purchase.

    Well, my European version prompted to update today, annoying it's an optional extra at £14.99, seems pricey but I will buy it, that is, if I can find out if it includes the UK!? Looking at the whats new in this version it sounds like it's not in the UK, unless I'm reading it wrong!?

    Not worth it for me if it's not in the UK. Not in those other countries enough, and when I am I'm not driving, they don't know which side of the road to drive on you know on the continent ;)

    Just downloaded the update and waiting for phone to charge to install the new update, just wondering about the in app purchases, firstly if I buy a in app purchase, I have currently multiple iphones on the same iTunes account, will this mean the in app purchase goes to all the iPhones ?

    Also what are the possible in app purchases for the Navigon Europe version?

    Thanks in advance.
