NAVIGON uses SVOX to bring text-to-speech to its iPhone app

The new, free software update for NAVIGON’s iPhone app (MobileNavigator), includes the Text-to-Speech, iPod Control and Location Sharing functions as well as automatic switching between day and night mode.

The text-to-speech function, from SVOX, lets the NAVIGON MobileNavigator app announce street names in addition to turn-by-turn directions. It is the first on-board navigation app for the iPhone with this functionality. Instead of only stating “turn right”, the app informs the user to “turn right on to ‘Main Street’, enabling the driver to further concentrate on the road ahead and not become distracted looking for street signs.
