help2park_iTunesHamburg, 16 December 2010 – NAVIGON was established in 1991. To mark its 20th anniversary next year the company is giving away apps to smartphone users, which will make life easier when they are on the move. The starting signal for the grand anniversary year has already been given: the first application in the “Search & Find” series is called help2park and is based on data from Google Maps. The app helps users to quickly find a parking space anywhere in the world. “Over the past two decades, we have accrued a great deal of knowledge when it comes to the development of innovative navigation software,” says Gerhard Mayr, vice-president of Worldwide Mobile Phone Business at NAVIGON. “This experience can also be found in clever applications like help2park, which allows us to help people quickly and easily while they are on the move.” NAVIGON is offering the apps in cooperation with advertising partners.1 This means that the applications can be made available as cheaply as possible or, in cases like help2park, even free of charge.

The help2park app appears on the display as a virtual parking disc. By gently touching the dial, users can set the radius within which the parking space is to be sought. Then you only need to touch the “P” symbol to open a list of parking options – including addresses and distances from the current location. By changing the view, the spaces can also be shown on a map. If NAVIGON MobileNavigator software has been installed on the smartphone, drivers can even be guided directly to the parking space of their choice. The help2park app can now be downloaded free of charge from the Apple App Store. It is the first of many applications that will follow in the anniversary year of 2011.
