  • Waste of time and money

    I tried to use it in Recife, Brazil and Angra dos Reis and somehow the GPS was totally lost. I wasted hours trying to get to places and it gave me the wrong directions. Many times I would get to the address and it was not there, then I would put the same address and it would send me to another location. After wasting hours, I gave up and decided to use Google Maps. Not to mention that you may end up in a slum surrounded by drug dealers if you are in Rio de Janeiro. I drove from Recife to Porto de Galinhas and it took me almost two hours. When I came back using Google Maps, it took me less than a hour. iPhone has the latest updates and so does Navigon Brazil.

    Wow... the price is a little steep for an app but it`s worth every cent. Could navigate in SP - with chaotic traffic and streets and no problem at all. Now I need to buy a kind of stand or support for the iphone in the car, cause i`ll be using it whenever I`m in Brazil. Great app.

    Since 2.0 I have nothing to complain. It's very accurate, all maps are up to date for SP and surrounding areas. Like the interface and the map and panorama 3D view very much. I recommend this. All my friends have this one, too.
  • Tradução ruim

    By Hemerson M. Faria
    Esta nova versão trouxe boas novidades. O gps parece mais ágil porém a tradução ficou ruim, números de ruas são chamados de polegadas sem contar a tradução do texto no App que fica a desejar. Outro problema é ter que baixar o mapa sempre que se apaga o aplicativo e o download é lento. Mesmo com uma internet de 35Mbits o download demora muito e ele não continua em segundo plano, ou seja, você tem que deixar o Navigon ativo pra baixar o mapa. Melhorarei a nota se pelo menos um destes "problemas" forem resolvidos.
  • Terrible GPS system - Outdated Maps, No spoke street names

    By cpierry
    I am using this version in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The app does not recognize lots of vlid addresses in the heart of Sao Paulo. The app does not speak the street names (as you have in the US). The app has routed me to turn the wrong way on a one way street 4 times so far. Time estimates are a joke. It assumes a 60mph average speed - good luck finding that in downtown Sao Paulo 0 it should use a more realistic 10-20 mph average speed. I would not recommend this app to anyone.

    Sem dúvida, o Navigon MobileNavigator Brazil é um dos melhores programas de GPS que já usei. Nos testes que fiz, ele me atendeu 100% (sem erros ou perda de sinal). Gostei bastante de sua interface, do modo de escolha do melhor caminho a seguir (que mostra na tela 3 opções a seguir, incluindo o tempo de chegada), e da resposta rápida no recalculo das rotas. Coisa que precisam ser implementadas: - Trânsito em tempo real; - Radares
  • Adorei o programa,dinheiro muito bem gasto,agora poderia vir o panorama view 3d de graca

    I have been using the European and the North America versions and really like those. So I purchased the Brazil one too hoping it will match the other ones. It didn't becuase of slightly inaccurate map data especially outside bigger cities which can create a lot of confusion. I tested this mainly in Rio Grande do Sul. It worked fairly well in Porto Alegre. Outside POA it had problems. The map data is often by several meters off from the actual location. This caused very confusing directions and I ended up making my own decisions by comparing map data to where I was. Some streets and tiny villages are not mapped at all. E.g. I was in the Serra Gaucha driving through little villages and vineyards and many of the streets connecting those villages are not in there. This is in strong contrast to my experience in the Douro vineyards in Portugal where even the smallest of the streets were to my amazement correctly mapped. I suggested to add a feature to allow user to upload their actual routes and correct map data in exchange for credits. Some of the Navigon competitors do so already. Overall I would still stick with Navigon even for Brazil given the bad Brazil reviews of competitors and my overall good experience with Navigon in other regions. However, I think this should sell at a fraction of what it does today until the things mentioned above are sorted out.
