Do I require internet to use the Android app?

The NAVIGON app is a navigation based software with offline map data for mobile phones and tablets. 

All maps for navigation (those which are required) have to be downloaded via Wi-Fi. Therefore you are able to use the NAVIGON app, whether on foot, in a car or on a bike, without a mobile data connection. 

If you are using the NAVIGON Select app, then a mobile  data connection has to be available with every app start. This is for the verification of the user's license. This can not be avoided as this is a fixed element of the NAVIGON Select license. A mobile data connection is only necessary with the purchased NAVIGON app when started, to check the registration.

Real-time services (available as in-app purchases via the In-App-Shop in the App) like Traffic Live, Mobile Alert Live, Mobile Alert Live Premium, Mobile Alert Live Upgrade and Urban Guidance always require a mobile data connection to fully function. It is possible to use offline navigation if internet is not available but without the real-time services. If you would like to leave the mobile data connection activated but want to use the NAVIGON app offline, then follow these steps to deactivate it:

  1. Open the NAVIGON app on your mobile device.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Deactivate the option Use internet when available by tapping on it.
    (The slider has to be moved to the left)
Real-time services receive information within seconds from the service provider, just like a traffic company, to avoid traffic delays while navigating. This information can only be received while connected to the internet via a mobile data connection.
