We started paying attention to the whole Map space when Apple decided to ditch Google Maps for its own mapping solution. Street View has also been dropped from iOS 6, but the popular navigation app Navigon has released an update which includes the same feature.
Navigon version 2.1 was originally demoed in MWC this year. The app provides Street View snapshots of destinations. This will help you understand your destination better, as you can rotate the view 360 degrees as well.
The new version comes with improvements to the Custom Route interface, and also general performance improvements in start-up time and map-rendering speed, speeds up zooming and panning in map view. Plus it enhances graphics for display on the iPad’s Retina display.
There is also a new in-app purchase called Cockpit available with the update. It uses the iPhone or iPad’s built-in accelerometer to provide extended information such as g-force, speed, horizontal and vertical position, and an adjustable speed and altitude graph.
Navigon USA is available for $29.99 before it returns to its normal price of $49.99 from July 16. Cockpit currently comes for $3.99, but will rise to $5.99 later.
