Today at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, Navigon announced a software update to their popular iPhone application, MobileNavigator, showcasing a variety of new features onboard for version 1.5.0. Among the new features, Navigon brings Facebook and Twitter integration, a panoramic 3D view, and a new feature named MyRoutes.  Full details of the changes are below.

Connection to Facebook and Twitter: A simple icon tap posts users current position, destination, and ETA without navigation interruption.

Panorama View 3D: True 3D in-map views obtained from NASA’s height and terrain data enable intuitive orientation of surrounding environment, and what lies ahead with digital landscape elevations, shadows, and geographic images.  Panorama View 3D is integrated in-map, independent from the phone’s data connection.  The Panorama View 3D feature will be available via an In-App Purchase.

Navigon MyRoutes: Analyzes driving habits, patterns, location, time/day, and provides up to three routes clearly displayed in-map with ETA, distance and driving times for each.
