Navigon GPS Navigation application for Windows Phone 7.5 Mango announced

Navigon GPS navigation which was already available only to German Windows Phone7 users on T-Mobile is now finally going to be launch globally on the platform with a new updated application specifically designed to take advantage of Windows Phone 7.5 Mango. This new application will feature the Reality Scanner (augmented Reality) and direct access to the user’s contact list :

“NAVIGON’s premium navigation app soon will be available for Windows Phone 7 users. The app includes many signature features that have made NAVIGON’s apps successful on Android devices and the iPhone, including on-board maps, spoken turn-by-turn directions, visual lane guidance, live traffic information and rerouting, among many other features. NAVIGON’s new app runs on Windows Phone 7.5 and also takes advantage of new features made available to developers with this new release. These features include the augmented reality function Reality Scanner, which provides an instant and effortless way of identifying nearby destinations while on foot; an option to select address information directly from the phone’s contact list; and the ability to save a favorite or home address as a shortcut on the start screen.”

The Navigon GPS app for Windows Phone 7 should be available in the Marketplace later this year. Hopefully this one will fair better than the Garmin application that was released just a few months ago.
