Navigon released their GPS Navigation app with on-board maps yesterday, and as expected it was pretty pricy at Â£51.49 orÂ â‚¬59.99.
It now turns out the app actually costs Â â‚¬84.99, and that the “lower” price is only an introductory offer.
From their press release:
Price and availability
In terms of map material, users have two versions to choose from: NAVIGON Europe with 44 countries and NAVIGON USA. From 11 October until 15 November NAVIGON Europe will be available at the reduced introductory price of â‚¬59.49 instead of â‚¬84.99, the US version for â‚¬25.99 instead of â‚¬42.49. This corresponds to a price discount of around 30 and 39 percent respectively. The app can now be downloaded from the Windows Phone Marketplace to all devices which run the Windows Phone Mango release.
While the price may be steep, it is in fact in line with their Android and iPhone clients, suggesting we better takeÂ advantageÂ of the deal before it slips away on the 15th November.
However in these days of $0.99 apps it remains a bitter pill to swallow.
