There's a flurry of GPS related news today, so let's get right on with it. First, one of our favorite nav apps, Navigon, is having a pretty big sale to celebrate its milestone of 2 million sales worldwide. If you've been lusting after a Navigon app, there's a 4-day, 50% off sale beginning today. Regional versions for the US are $14.99. The US-Canada app is $29.99. The USA-only version is $24.99. Current users can take advantage of the promotion as well, with prices for in-app purchases of Traffic Live, Panorama View 3D and Zagat Survey for MobileNavigator iPhone at 25 percent off.

On the TomTom front, that excellent nav solution is on sale for $34.99 for the US version. The US-Canada app is $39.99. The sale has no end date. TomTom also notes that new iPhone users on Verizon will be seeing a "connect to GPS" warning when they start up. TomTom advises users to just hit continue, and all will be well. The glitch doesn't affect your navigation and will be fixed ASAP.

Magellan USA is also on sale through February 15 for $10 off the regular price, bringing that app to $39.99.

The iGo app is on sale for a "limited time" at 30% off, or $24.99. The newest version includes multitasking support on iOS 4 and updated maps.

It's nice to see prices coming down, especially if you watch for the frequent sales. With increasingly better performance, iTunes integration and features like Google search and traffic, it's getting hard for iPhone owners to justify a stand alone GPS unit. Have fun when you hit the road, but if you haven't bought a nav app yet be sure to hit the sales first, and check my thoughts on many of the nav apps iPhone owners are using.
