Navigon's MobileNavigator brings offline voice guided navigation to the iPhone

The first voice guided navigation GPS system in North America for the iPhone was AT&T Navigator (see my review) that was launched back in June. I was very impressed with the software and service and used it quite a bit last weekend on an out of town trip where I brought no physical maps along. There are pros and cons to a connected, subscription-based solution and the major complaint is that a data connection is required for navigation. I just read a press release over on Gear Diary where Navigon announced the first navigation solution for the iPhone and iPod touch in North America (Navigon previously launched in Europe) where the maps live on the device so no active data connection is needed.

And unsurprisingly, the mother of allgroupware solutions -- the combo of the Lotus Notes messaging client andthe Domino server -- is today, the most mature corporate 'avatar' of thesemass consumer tools. At the recent gathering in Orlando,U.S., of 6000 Lotus programmers, developers and partners, one could seewhy personal and business-driven communication seem to merge seamlesslyinto one environment; how Instant Messaging is the core driver, with livechat, blogs, `wikis', even the ubiquitous USB thumb drive, the mobile phoneand the iPod, forming part of tomorrow's enterprise systems. The venue -- in the middle of the DisneyWorld -- seemed to underline the coming together of youthful tools andhardcore business objectives. Certainly a metaphoricaltake on Lotusphere.Link: TheHindu: Carrying Lotus files on a thumb drive >
