The Clever Parking feature lets drivers know where and what the best parking options are available around the upcoming location. When approaching the destination, a “P” icon appears in the map view. In one tap an easy to scroll list of all available parking options is provided, including distance from destination for easy decision-making.

Live Weather updates report current weather conditions along the route and at the destination in real-time. Temperature and weather condition icons display in the route overview screen before and during navigation. By tapping the screen, a detailed three-day forecast is available

The Destination Information Display provides an at-a-glance overview and summary of information pertaining to the destination. Users can customise what is shown in settings/options, such as parking locations, weather information and specific POI’s such as all the restaurants that are around the upcoming destination. This allows users to get an overview of everything that is important to them ahead of time, so they know what to expect and where to go when arriving.

The 1.6.0 updates includes the multitasking compatibility, which provides continuous navigation and turn-by-turn directions while running other applications simultaneously. Users can, for example, take a call without sacrificing navigation. While on the go, and receiving a call, the voice guided turn-by-turn directions automatically turn down to be heard only by the driver and one tap lets the screen continue to provide route and navigation information in the map mode.

MobileNavigator runs in the background while accessing other apps and functionalities of the iPhone, so the app can continue to automatically calculate and update routing information and provide voice guided turn-by-turn directions. When switching back to MobileNavigator, the user picks up exactly the place where they left off. Other iOS4 integration includes enhanced Retina display buttons and icons for the iPhone 4.

Pedestrian Mode Voice Guidance delivers voice directions as well as voice over menu guidance. While in pedestrian mode, users get the same “turn-by-turn” directions as if they were behind the wheel and can set the voice support to handle navigating within the applications menu options for a more hands free experience. Reality View 3D has also been enhanced, with a new look and updated graphics make the views of the road more at-a glance friendly, claims Navigon.
