Google Street View is coming to Navigon iOS apps. The app will pop up a street-level view as you arrive at your destination so you can, for example, identify a particular building that is your destination. That should be of significant help when you are heading to an unfamiliar area.
Navigon was recently acquired by Garmin, but the lines of iPhone navigator software have remained separate.
It will be interesting to see how the street view feature works in practice. Some of the Google images are out of date, and as any navigation app user knows, keeping the software updated is an ongoing issue.
Navigon doesn't have a date for the new feature as yet, but we're told to expect it this spring.
