NAVIGON further upgrades MobileNavigator 7 for Windows Mobile and WindowsPhone

The new NAVIGON MobileNavigator 7 will soon also transform smartphones with the new Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system into a fully functional navigation device. In addition, the new software includes a Latest Map Guarantee for new customers as well as the opportunity to use further innovative services such as NAVIGON Traffic Live or Google Local Search[1].

Hamburg, 3 Dezember 2009 – Acquiring a smartphone with the new Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system need not mean going without first-class navigation software. The new MobileNavigator 7 software update from NAVIGON is also compatible with the new mobile phone operating system, and it comes with some new additional features and, at an introduction price of 74,95 euros, the European version has been reduced by 20 per cent. “The new version offers MN 7 customers as well as new customers the opportunity to upgrade their smartphone with additional features and services for navigation,” says Gerhard Mayr, vice-president of worldwide mobile phone business & new markets at NAVIGON.
Optional additional services which users can enable on their device after the update include the new feature, NAVIGON Traffic Live2, already available for the Apple iPhone with the new software update and now also for Windows Mobile-based smartphones. For a one-off payment of 24.95 euros, the innovative Live Service will provide real-time information about traffic incidents, enabling drivers to identify congestion at an early stage and, taking the current traffic situation into account, avoid it. Following the software update, users also have ready access to Google Local Search. This means users can scan the Internet for additional destinations on their mobile phone directly by means of the MN7 software and be navigated straight there.3 During the price campaign the software package including NAVIGON Mobile Navigator EU and Traffic Live has been reduced by 30,00 euros and therewith will be available for 89,95 euros.

Another MN 7 upgrade is the Latest Map Guarantee already established with NAVIGON PNAs whereby NAVIGON guarantees new customers installing the MN 7 on their Windows Mobile device for the first time the very latest map material at all times, or alternatively the opportunity to download the latest map material on to their device within thirty days after the first use. To introduce the new software version, the current MobileNavigator 7 is offered at 74,95 euros instead of 99 euros to all new customers until January 18.
Lovers of camping will be interested in an additional extra: for 19.95 euros, MN 7 users can download the “ADAC Camping and Caravanning Guide 2009” and “ADAC Caravan Park Guide 2009” package onto their Windows Mobile device, giving campers detailed information about more than 5,400 European campsites and 3,900 caravan parks in Europe.
The MN 7 update will be available to download this very year from the NAVIGON website at www.navigon.com/mn7 and can be downloaded free of charge via NAVIGON Fresh. Both the additional service Traffic Live and the ADAC Additional Packs like the software itself will be available in the NAVIGON online shop.

NAVIGON offers the NAVIGON Mobile Navigator EU including Freshmaps for a special price of 99.95 euros, reduced by 33 percent, and the EU version including Freshmaps and Traffic Live for 109.95 euros, reduced by nearly 65 euros.
