Garmin launches ‘Viago’ Navigation App, a new navigation experience


Google maps, a notable navigation app in gadget world and it has become the go-to mapping and navigation service not only because it is convenient, but because of its street view navigation. Though Google maps leads most of the navigation market, other services such as Nokia’s Here maps and iOS’s Maps are also in stands firmly. And now, here comes another debut by Garmin – ‘Viago’.

Garmin, best known for manufacturing GPS navigation devices and primarily known to consumers as the makers of in-vehicle GPS navigation products, has launched víago, a new smartphone app for both Android and iOS platforms. So, what it has got more than what we have in navigation world? Viago offers most of Google Maps features along with multiple-destination route planner, posted speed limits, your own current speed, weather reports for your destination and photo-realistic junction views.

Interesting, but it’s a paid app. Though the app will eventually sell for $1.99 — you can grab it for $0.99 until July 13 — some features, including traffic information and offline maps, will only be available with in-app purchases, which range from $4.99 to $9.99. For those who are willing to pay a little more for more features, the app also offers real-time traffic updates, safety alerts, and “real directions,” which provide directions based on landmarks and other visual cues rather than street names.
