I’ve happily been using Navigon’s GPS solution on my iPhone 3GS. Sure there are benefits to having a standalone unit but, at least for me, having one integrated solution is the way to go. What can I say, I like being able to avoid having yet another device in my car.
When the Navigon app was released I debated whether or not I should jump on the initial discount that currently has the app for $69.99 or wait until TomTom released or, at a minimum, announced pricing of theirs. After all, the TomTom app had been shown as part of a larger system that included a nice windshield mount that enhances the GPS signal.
The TomTom pricing was leaked today. I’m glad I jumped on Navigon.
According to TUAW the price will be $160 to $200. Sure it includes the mount but… it will be $160 – $200. In fairness the post points out that TomTom units go for between $119 and $400 so this is totally unreasonable but… it will be $160 – $200. I could, if I wanted, almost have my Navigon app AND the low-end TomTom for the price which will be $160 – $200.
