NAVIGON v4.5 for Android now offers 3D map views and last mile navigation
Sure, Android has a neat navigation service courtesy of Google Maps, but for those who prefer a more comprehensive experience, the NAVIGON app for Android seems to be a versatile solution – mainly because it offers some additional goodies that make it a worthwhile supplement.

Fortunately, the team over at NAVIGON is steadily updating the app to provide additional features that will no doubt aid users in their travelers. This morning, the app was updated to version 4.5, bringing along such great new features like 3D maps view and its last mile navigation.

With its new Panorama 3D view, which is actually a $9.99 in-app purchase add-on to NAVIGON, it enables users to view true 3D elevation views that are obtained from NASA’s height and terrain data. Furthermore, users will be better able to traverse their destinations because Google Street View allows them to recognize their destinations for better orientation.

As for the new last mile navigation feature, the app will save the position of your parked car and will actually switch to pedestrian mode to give you walking directions to your destination. Once you’re done and ready to get back to your vehicle, it’ll provide all the necessary directions.

To celebrate the roll out of the new software update, NAVIGON is reducing the price of its Android apps by 25% until August 12, 2012. Meaning, the NAVIGON for Android US app will be available for $29.95 instead of its normal price of $39.95. Moreover, the North American version will be on sale for $39.95, as opposed to $49.95. And finally, that new in-app Panorama View 3D is on sale for $6.95 in the meantime.
