iGO primo® app for iPhone Now with Map Extension Feature

The iGO primo app Hungary & Romania edition introduces a new in-app purchase category in iTunes: the option to extend the navigation range by adding more countries

By popular demand, NNG has updated iGO primo app with a Map Purchase Option – the first map extension feature available for an onboard navigation application on App Store. This feature update enables users of the Hungary & Romania edition of iGO primo app to add country maps through the in-app purchase function. By extending the current coverage, the user enjoys even more freedom and peace of mind during trips abroad. Five map extension packages are available at a price of €14.99 each, covering the following countries:

  • Croatia and Bosnia Herzegovina
  • Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein
  • Italy, Slovenia and Malta
  • Spain and Portugal
  • Czech Republic and Slovakia

Previously, navigation users on iPhone were forced to close down one application and open another when planning routes into countries that were not part of the initial regional coverage. The new Map Purchase Option lifts these geographic limitations. The extension of the originally purchased Hungary & Romania edition is able to deliver seamless navigation and route planning across 13 other country borders. As the iGO primo app offers onboard navigation, which means that maps and other content are stored on the smartphone, no internet connection is needed for navigation, and no roaming costs are incurred while navigating abroad.

“By constantly listening to the user feedback we receive on the iGO My way Twitter and Facebook pages, we aim at developing a navigation app with features and qualities that users really need. The new map extension feature gives iGO primo app users the freedom to build and extend their app exactly the way they want,” says Gergely Homola, iPhone Business Unit Leader at NNG LLC.

In addition, the latest iGO primo app update in iTunes includes the fresh 2011/03 maps of Hungary and Romania. For more information on the app, visit our product page and watch the demo here.
