Navigon Launches Car Kit for iPhone

Posted by at 9:08 am on January 27, 2011

GPS maker Navigon is now shipping an official Car Kit for the iPhone. Included in the package is a specialized windshield mount, as well as a USB car charger and a five-foot USB adapter cable. Distinguishing Navigon’s approach is the mount’s design, which uses a smooth arching arm rather than one that simply juts straight out.

Although the kit is intended to be used with Navigon’s MobileNavigator app, the app isn’t required, owing to an absence of proprietary electronics. The hardware is compatible with the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4, and will cost $45 until February 3rd, after which point the price will be hiked to $50.

Navigon also intends to release a series of free “single-feature” apps during 2011. These will follow in the steps of help2park, launched in late 2010. The title is limited exclusively to finding parking spots relative to a driver’s current location.

Price

The NAVIGON Car Kit is available now for the iPhone 3G/S and 4 and has an introductory price of $44.99 until Feb 3, 2011, after that it will sale for $49.99 with free shipping.
