I put this in the turn-by-tun thread too but I think it deserves a thread of it's own.

Mods please delete if this bends any rules, but.....

Navigon GPS app plus Aus/NZ maps are free for SGS 2.2

Steps:

1) make sure you are on 2.2
2) download Market Enabler from market
3) set region to custom 50502
4) search for and install navigon
5) download maps (both countries ~300mb)

-optional- 

Download Navigon Fresh (http://www.navigon.com/portal/int/karten_services/fresh.html), and install maps via mass storage

Edit: root needed if you want to use Market Enabler. If not rooted, just try searching for navigon.

Thanks, I read your title and thought; "sigh, someone can't spell navigation" :)

My Market region was 53024, just wondering what the correct market region is for New Zealand, thanks.

Not a bad navigation app. not as easy to use as google nav but the voice is a lot nicer and pronounces street names correctly.

That is correct, assuming you are on 2degrees...

Edit: Just downloaded Navigon, seems to work well in spite of being described as for the Galaxy Tab only.

I have copilot , brut navigation (I used the atlas program to download all the map tiles for my city) and navigon installed. I would rate them in that order. The problem with navigon I found is there is sometimes no screen button to change modes and in some modes the menu button doesn't do anything.

I'd love to give this app a shot but I don't see it on the Market, nor can I find Market Enabler, so I'm stuck.

Any clues as to how I can take advantage of this app geatefully received.

Thanks in advance and cheers,

Too late to edit the previous post. Poo.

Update: I found MarketEnabler by googling and manually installed it. Changed setting as per the carrier number supplied but only the paid version of Navigon was visible. Re-booting the phone now in case that helps.

And nope, it didn't help. No free version of Navigon visible in the Market, though the paid version certainly is. I guess I'm doing something wrong but I have no idea what exactly.

Oh well...

Do you have root, you need root and super user to change market region

Yup... Market enabler works and confirms the the number has been reset. Maybe I need to use the Samsung market app instead of AppBrain to search?

Thx for the response.

Done. For reasons I can't fathom, it works with the Android Market app but not AppBrain.

But it worked in the end and if my experience helps someone else, it's all good.

Thanks for the encouragement dude.

Last comment - the voice Navigon uses is really good. I know the Brut implementation is a hack, (and obviously a good one since it performed flawlessly in my tests), but the voice anomolies can definitely be confusing, pronunciations being as inaccurate as they are. Still, plenty good enough to be usable. And the price is right. :)

Navigon, on the other hand, has great audio clarity and is a pleasure to listen to, but the maps don't seem to be as good as the Google ones and there's a ton of extraneous visual clutter. I'll be looking to reduce that once I've read the manual. :)

But again, stunning value for the price. :D

Thanks a heap for the heads-up.

Cheers,
R2D2
