If you saw our video test drive of Navigon for Windows Phone you may have wondered how that compares to the iPhone version of Navigon. In the video below we decided to take them both for a test drive this time and see how they do.
You’ll notice the iPhone version of Navigon has a much different design for the initial home screen, but it has a few more extremely useful features. For example, Navigon for iPhone can continue to run and announce directions while the device’s screen is off or you’re using another application. Unfortunately it also announces driving instructions while you’re talking on the phone, so that may not be ideal. The Windows Phone version does not work when the screen is off or the app is not active, but Windows Phone’s fast app switching makes resuming your navigation instructions to be pretty quick. You’ve also got a few extra things in Navigon for iPhone such as the store where you can buy different types of maps and whatnot.
