My prayers were answered - v1.4 has turn-by-turn directions, see http://www.flickr.com/photos/navigon/4159259559. Navigon has a really strange way of announcing new features - on Flickr before their own site. Go figure...

Ver 1.4 is not available in the US store yet. I own both US and Europe versions. I also tried setting my country to Germany (where I sit as I type this), but eventually I got a message that my iTunes account is only authorized for US purchases.

@Klopus, thanks for the post on the 1.4 update, they seem to be dribbling this info out bit by bit. I agree that the route directions have been something I've really wanted, even though you could always review a route map, it was never quite satisfactory for me. I also like being able to input coords and search Google for POIs. Any idea when we'll get this update?

An Austrian site mentions that the new version also allows manual zoom during routing/navigation. I would really like that feature. Most of the time I'm OK with the auto-zoom, but there are many times I'd like to set my own zoom level. Can anyone confirm that this new feature is included?

Yes, you just zoom in/out with the usual "two finger expand/squeeze", then when you want to go back to autozoom, you tap "autozoom" at the top of the map as seen below, I played it with it a lot at first ;-)

Cool! I missed being able to set a fixed zoom level when I switched from iGuidance to TomTom a while back. TomTom lets you zoom (on Windows Mobile, at least) but then returns to what it deems the appropriate level after a few seconds. I prefer to tell it when I'm ready for it to go back to autozoom, like Navigon appears to do now.

When V 1.3 came out it took a day or so for the update to make it to the US. Hopefully tomorrow or the day after I will be able to try it out myself.

Here's the first complete list I've seen of the potential 13 features in v1.4 ... can't confirm since i'm awaiting US approval.

1.4 New features list:

- SOS / Direct help
- Google Search
- Enhanced Pedestrian Mode
- Turn-by-Turn route list
- Manual 2D/3D zoom while navigating
- Favorites are displayed on the map
- Country info when crossing borders
- Switch between audiobooks and music (iPod mode)
- Browsing traffic messages
- Intermediate destinations with phonebook entries
- Using phonebook contact groups
- Faster boot time
- Coordinate Input

thanks to Picazzo

Updated on 12-16-2009 ...

Now that I've had a chance to use ... some add'l features:

- GPS accuracy shown on Map page
- Audiobooks display in app
- Podcasts don't show in app, but can be started outside and played during navigation
- "POI on route" doesn't allow Google Local Search, but GLS can be used under "Add an Interm Destination"
- Turn-by-turn list is good, but doesn't allow any edits (block a segment)
- "Save Position" allows you to mark a spot; e.g. parking spot, etc

What am I missing?

Been using v1.4 quite a bit lately to go to places I wasn't familiar with and found the Google Local feature to be priceless, just type where you need to go and you'll get results in a second or less courtesy of the 3G+ connection. On the TomTom GO x50 with its slow GPRS connectin it can take up to 5 seconds to get 5 results and again 4 seconds if you need to ask for a second page.

A smaller thing, but you can now also cycle between ETA and TTD (Time to destination) by tapping on the info field (that exta field needs to be activated in the options).

I don't know what the holdup is, but v 1.4 still hasn't shown up in the US store (neither the US nor the European version). I also wrote to Navigon to try to find out if the traffic subscription was a lifetime or one year subscription. They haven't answered yet. Does anybody here know the answer?

I thought it was for one year but someone in the AT&T forums says it is a lifetime subscription.

It's always been described by Navigon as being "lifetime" what makes you think it might be for one year only? Wonder what the problem is with v1.4 in the US too, maybe the Google Local search feature or new maps that aren't quite ready.

As far as I am aware, it's lifetime ... and looking forward to v1.4 in NA. We're at 2 and a half weeks and counting for approval process ... I'm wearing out the 'Check for Updates' button in iTunes!?!

OK. I probably just made a wrong assumption since I used to pay yearly for my TomTom traffic subscription when I had a Windows Mobile phone. I couldn't find anything that said it was one way or another on the Navigon site so I wanted to clear up my own confusion. Good to know. I purchased US and European subscriptions and I'm happy that they are good for life and I won't have a recurring expense.

I just downloaded it and the Google connection is fantastic. Works like a charm. Even though the App Store still only shows 1.3, iTunes detected an update and downloaded 1.4.

Don't forget the GPSPassion Club!

Google Local Search isn't giving me any results when I use "Current Location" default - even though I have GPS lock ... I have to put a word or description; and a specific location to get good result list. I wonder if the range of 'current location' search is small area?

Any suggestions?
