iGo My Way makes turn-by-turn navigation easy for Android users
There's no questioning how Android owners are soaking up all the wonders that Google Maps with Navigation has provided, but there is still a likely scenario when app will fail to aid you during your travels. As Google Maps requires a constant data connection to download maps, it's quite inconvenient when you hit a dead zone during your route that can potentially delay your travel. Fortunately though, iGo My Way has been announced for the Android platform and will soon be available. Aside from the stunning 3D visualizations, it offers some of the refinements you see on similar navigation apps like sophisticated route calculation, precise voice guidance, lane assist, and optimized in-car use. The best part of it all is that the maps are already included with the app – meaning you'll still be able to use it despite not having a connection to a cellular network. As you're driving by certain locations, landmarks will be displayed in 3D for a more realistic mapping view – specifically things like valleys, hills, and mountains. This would make the perfect solution for those that don't want to deal with spotty coverage in their area.

Sounds great! How much? Also, will it still be able to search for locations and be updated consistently?

Well, first you have to be hungarian. Next, you need to have a specific handset. While their website is in English, their FAQ is not. I used Google translate to try to get some info, and had little success. I wrote to their support department, and got the following response: "Dear Frank Hall, First of all, thank you for your interest in our products! Currently this software version is distributed by a Hungarian mobile provider only for a specific device. The list of compatible devices will be expanded, please visit back later for further information! If you have further questions, do not hesitate to contact us! Best regards, NNG Support" First of all, not even my name, figure the rest out from there. Sounds like a good product idea, just need some more translation/development work to make it US friendly.

Is it like paid Ovi Maps? You don't need an internet connection? I would rather use this than the Google Navigation.
