Garmin Launches New Víago App Featuring Various Navigation Capabilities

June 18, 2014
The popular navigation company Garmin has just launched a new iOS app. Called Garmin víago, the paid app promises to offer features not normally found in free navigation apps. Garmin víago offers international map browsing and regional navigation. With the app, you can search addresses and browse points of interest internationally, wherever map data is available. You can also navigate to destinations within your region with the app's free voice-guided turn-by-turn directions by car or on foot. The app also features photo-realistic junction views with lane assist to let you know which lane to be in before a turn. It also displays your current speed and the legal speed limit for the road you're on, along with other bits of traffic info. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. In addition, Garmin víago comes with the following optional premium upgrades:
  • Downloadable Maps to Go allow you to navigate without a data connection and avoid roaming fees
  • Choose full or regional coverage maps
  • Traffic Live provides real-time traffic information with automatic rerouting
  • Directions with spoken street names and 3-D building representations help you with your orientation
  • Garmin Real Directions™ guide using landmarks, significant buildings and traffic lights, such as, “Turn left after the clock tower”
  • Mobile Alert Live provides alerts for mobile speed cameras as reported by fellow drivers (not permitted in all countries)
  • Safety Kit helps you avoid trouble with speed and safety camera warnings (not permitted in all countries), active lane guidance and alternative routes
  • Panorama View 3-D shows you the surrounding terrain, including mountains, hills and valleys
