How does it work?
Upgrade to the brand new iGO primo app now!*
Easy to learn – this app is ideal even for people who have never tried GPS navigation before. The maps are part of the application**, for navigation you don’t need cellular network coverage. NO ROAMING FEES, no surprises.
Getting there – easier and faster
Select your destination — either by searching for an address, a place of interest, or by picking a spot on the map. Our Smart keyboard and Smart search make it easy. Our Adaptive Search Results technology actually learns from your use of the application and tailors search results accordingly.
iGO primo app calculates the route to your chosen destination and displays a map overview along with the most important information, such as journey distance and estimated travel time. Just tap Go! and iGO primo app guides you to your destination with clear voice guidance and a smoothly moving 3D map. Lane assistance and signposts are now country-specific and therefore even more realistic to help you find your way no matter where you go.
Apart from fast, short and easy-to-follow route variants, you can now also use our new Green routing option, for lower fuel consumption and CO2 emission. The route variants are calculated and displayed simultaneously, so you can compare the alternatives visually on the map and pick the one that suits your needs best. You can avoid freeways, ferries, unpaved roads, and toll roads, and the new Avoidances option lets you bypass any road section of the itinerary. You don’t have to worry even if you miss a turn: iGO primo app instantly re-calculates the route.
Installation and setup
Please note that since iPod touch and iPad do not have built-in GPS-receivers, an external GPS-receiver is required. Compatible are only those which are officially supported by Apple. Due to the size of the package, we recommend purchasing and downloading the application via iTunes.
Note: Continuous use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Background navigation has to be turned on – you can do this under Settings / Advanced settings.
* This update is not available for iPhone 3G devices.
** NNG will make the latest maps available as part of the free software updates, depending on availability. Conditions apply.

iGO primo app offers stunning 3D visualization. Complex junctions are displayed in 3D to provide a rapid understanding of your next maneuver while true-to-life 3D models of famous landmarks and display of the terrain around you - such as valleys, hills and mountains.
The Text-to-Speech (TTS) feature allows pronouncing city, street and highway names as part of the guidance instructions. The new TTS Pro reads out not only standard voice commands, but also traffic events, a summary of the planned route and relevant country info after crossing a border.

Navigation resumes after incoming call
Following an incoming call during navigation, iGO primo app simply resumes guidance without any user interaction.
"We can say that aesthetically it’s really enjoyable; when first starting up we notice right away the presence of 3D monuments on the map, unique in its kind; we start the navigation and after a few moments we have the GPS signal (I have to say that within Rome it never lost the signal); here we are, starting the navigation, discrete voice, good route, re-calculation of the route in just 5 seconds,..."
"iGO My way for iPhone is a good navigation software that fights head-to-head with other applications present in App Store. Among its advantages are maps in 3D, immediate satellite signal, fluency during navigation and free map updates until the end of 2010. Personally, I liked it for its simplicity and its fluency when responding to the driver’s input, for example a continuous route modification. If you are looking for an excellent navigation that won’t let you down on the road (battery permitting), iGO My way for iPhone is an ideal choice."
"iGo is an extremely good replacement for a car GPS, it was even an improvement for me. Some may say that its going rate of $79.99 (USD) is a lot but its cheaper than most other GPS’s and iGo is one of the better ones. From its clear maps and eerily-human voices to its smooth tracking and myriads of features, iGo is the best GPS turn-by-turn in the appstore."
"The software weighs less than the Sygic although it makes massive use of 3D graphics, not only for roads but also for landmarks. This means we can immediately single them out on the maps. What's more, 3D graphics are also used for position markers. Some are very original, like the tank or the flying carpet."
"One feature I really liked is a 'where am I' mode. You tap the map while en route, and select 'where am I'. It gives you latitude, longitude, altitude and the city, state, and street you are traveling on. In the lower right is another button labeled 'help nearby'. Tapping it gives you links to the closest car repair, police, health facilities, and ATMs. I think this is a terrific feature, and should be on every nav system, but as far as the iPhone goes, I've only seen it on the iGo package."
