Navigon’s Crowdsourced Traffic Feature Now Available

Navigon AG has just released version 1.3 of its MobileNavigator [App Store, $89.99] turn-by-turn GPS app which provides support for the much anticipated Live Traffic feature. The new feature allows for MobileNavigator to determine the best routes based on current traffic data, crowdsourced from other Navigon users as well as other sources. If traffic issues arise on the current route, users are alerted and can optionally alter their route to avoid the congestion.

The new feature will be available as a one-time In App Purchase for $24.99. However, during the next four weeks, users can purchase Live Traffic at a discounted price of $19.99.

In addition to Live Traffic, version 1.3 also offers an extended destination search which helps to find a destination if the exact address can’t be found. The new version can also be launched in landscape mode.

MobileNavigator North America is available for $89.99 and other regions are also available.
