Garmin is upgrading its Navigon navigation app for iPhones and iPads. Version 2.1 of the Navigon app adds such features as Google Street View and a Cockpit in-app purchase that displays driving data while looking at the map.
The new version also improves start-up time and map-rendering speed. It also speeds up zooming and panning in map view, and it enhances graphics for display on the iPad’s Retina display. An option called manual route blocking lets users manually block off certain roads or highways or sections of a map to avoid them while driving. Current owners of the app can expect the upgrades to be completely free.
