Navmii: Navmii GPS Live: iPhone Navigation for EUR3.99 per country

Apr 15, 2010 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Navmii, a leading satellite navigation company in the UK, today announces its GPS Navigation application for iPhone available for a fraction of the cost of other GPS applications, thanks to a new deal with digital map provider Automotive Navigation Data (AND).

Navmii GPS Live is a fully functioning suite of GPS Navigation applications for the iPhone. Navmii GPS Live applications for Germany, Spain and The Netherlands are available now for only EUR3.99 per country from the iTunes store. France will be available from early next week.

Navmii GPS Live does everything you would expect from an in car GPS Navigation unit for a tiny fraction of the cost.Users can search for an address by city, street, house or postcode and are instantly routed there with voiced directions. Navmii will re-route if you take a wrong turn and provides information on the journey distance, estimated time of arrival, points of interest and live search for local facilities with integrated Microsoft Bing search.

Peter Atalla, CEO of Navmii said: "With the launch of Navmii GPS Live, we are radically changing the cost people have to pay for fully functioning GPS Navigation on the iPhone. Turn-by-turn navigation has been priced far too high. Navmii GPS Live gives consumers turn-by-turn navigation on their iPhone for less than the cost of a paper map." "The iPhone is a brilliant device to use for turn-by-turn navigation but why should someone have to spend up to EUR69.99for this from TomTom and others? Today you can buy Navmii GPS Live for France, Spain, Germany and The Netherlands for just EUR3.99 per country." Maarten Oldenhof, Chief Executive Officer of AND, is delighted to join Navmii in this breakthrough for mobile navigation. "For years it has been our vision that high quality navigation can be offered for a low price. Together with Navmii we can now offer route directions to every iPhone user in a market that long has been dominated by big companies with large overhead, asking far too high prices." "Navmii GPS Livewill be rolled out across all of continental Europe at a similar attractive low price. Once you buy and download Navmii GPS Live that's it, no monthly charges, no data connection costs - just a great satellite /GPS navigation experience." Notes for Editors Compatible with iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS.
