Navigon's new My Maps function allows users to pick which map regions to download to their Smartphone (Downloading map regions requires a Wi-Fi connection). Users who, for example, own the USA version can select the United States they want immediately and download additional regions at a later time. This ability prolongs memory; since users store only the maps they need on their Smartphone. In addition, Navigon Fresh Maps offers quarterly map updates. The new map updating service uses trusted, field-verified, and quality-controlled map and points of interest updates from Navteq to ensure the most accurate maps possible. Users can keep their maps accurate and reliable by receiving quarterly map updates for a one-time fee for the lifetime of the product.

Navigation has become more complex over the past several years, so Navigon redesigned its user interface to provide a better overview and making it easier to use. Each Smartphone navigation app is customized for its operating system to provide the best possible experience on each platform. The next generation of Navigon's iPhone navigation app, for example, allows users to easily switch between different pages with animated menus and new multi-touch user gestures. In addition, it's easy to rotate and zoom maps in any direction when in 3D mode and tap points of interest on the map to instantly add them to a route.
