Navigon has presented a version of the Mobile Navigator application with fully built-in multitasking for iOS 4. The 1.6 version of the application does not stop tacking position while the user is switching away to another application. Consequently, it will ensure voice guidance although another application could be in the foreground. Calls do not interrupt the experience, although the risk of cutting off a conversation exists.
Multitasking is a major feature introduced in iOS 4. It allows running of third-party iPhone applications in the background. Running radio applications like Pandora or VoIP iPhone applications like Skype is now possible in the background while surfing by using the Safari browser of the iPhone.
The download seems to be ready in the near future and is supposed to be countered by applications from TomTom and others that are already supported by the iOS 4. The pricing of the application has not been mentioned by now but is expected to be unchanged from the North American edition’s price of $80 and may be even less in the case of other regions.
