Updated July 23rd, 2010
Thanks to gemro311 for pointing out in the [TOPIC] GPS on Google Android Devices topic in the "GPS on Smartphones" forums that Destinator 9 was now available for Android Units running version 1.5, 1.6,2.1 and 2.2.

It costs $70 and is available either via the "Android Market place" with a 24 hour trial or via the Destinator website with a longer 14 day trial. Click here for the full list of features but the main difference with Google Maps Navigation are the "on-board" maps and route calculations so there is no need to connect to a remote server, a must when travelling abroad.

Updated March 12th, 2010 - Destinator was one of the first GPS Assisted navigation programs for mobile devices in 2001 and its v2 was the first to offer 3D navigation in late 2002. Fast-forwarding to early 2010 v9 arrived on Windows Mobile and Android and now the iPhone version is available. Destinator offers "on-board" navigation, which means it can work autonomously with maps stored on the device and routes calculated directly. It can access the network for "connected" features though, such as real-time traffic, google local search or Live Weather...


Destinator have kindly offered to give 5 full licences to GpsPasSion forum members. To get your free licence, just post a message in the Destinator 9 for iPhone : Free Giveaway topic in the "GPS on the Apple iPhone -" forums.

Updated January 19th, 2010 - The Destinator GPS software was relaunched in June last year (see below) and it is now available as Destinator v9 for Windows Mobile and Android Smartphones, with an iPhone version in the works apparently...... They have a trial version and long time forum member "rem" seized this opportunity to try it out on his Tilt 2 (HTC Touch Pro 2) WM Smartphone. Unfortunately it didn't meet his needs and he came up with a list of Pros and Cons, the latter outweighing the former, with lockups being the main problem. You can read his report in the Destinator 9 for WM and Android - Reviews in the "GPS and Mobile News" forums.

Updated June 4th, 2009 - We hadn't heard much from Destinator lately although the software can still be found on some entry-level systems. A far cry from its claim to fame in late 2001 as the first "turn by turn" navigation system for mobile devices, i.e. PocketPCs. They also had some early wins in the AIO market with Packard Bell or Acer but for some reason, they faded, while Garmin and TomTom took off...


Just a year after they bought Destinator, Intrinsyc are relaunching it as Destinator 9 with a revamped interface. It is supposed to be available now, but it's not clear on what format...It's likely going to an uphill battle for them but let's wish them good luck. You can use the Destinator 9 Announced ! started by forum regular igalan.

Posted June 11th, 2005 - The new version of Destinator has arrived and it's called Destinator PN, as in "Personal Navigator" I suppose. It picks up where Destinator 3 and Destinator 3 Pro left off with a main navigation screen that has been completely revamped and made very configurable...


The US should follow but it is already available in Europe, and you can read andens01's first impressions after using Destinator PN for "50 Swedish Miles"! I have also been testing it in France where it does not yet decode the private v-trafic TMC broadcast unlike Navigon MN|5. It is very competitvely priced though at €142 for full European Coverage and upgrades from any navigation system available for €80.
