Navigon Turns iPhone into real GPS device

I am still rocking the original iPhone so I don’t get that snazzy GPS location feature. Sure, I can find my general location with the phone using cellular towers, but have often wished for a full GPS device when I was on the road.

Navigon has announced a new application coming to America for the iPhone 3G and 3G S soon called MobileNavigator. The app is only compatible with devices running the 3.0 OS update. The app stores a full map database on the iPhone and offers turn-by-turn routing.

The App will be offered in Lite and full versions. The Lite version will not have the navigation capabilities, but will offer maps and a POI database. The full version will offer those features and driving directions. The maps rotate depending on the orientation of the screen. The app features Reality View Pro, Lane Assistant Pro, and Speed Assistant modes.
