Navigon helps Android users find parking

Navigon Help2Park app for Android locates nearby parking stations

Navigon has released a new application for Android smartphones that allows users to easily locate nearby parking stations.

Navigon Help2Park app for Android is a free app for Android smartphones that helps drivers locate nearby parking stations. The user can set the radius they would like to search in from their current location, and then simply tap a 'P' symbol in the app to open a list of parking options.

The Navigon Help2Park app for Android will then display a list of nearby parking stations including addresses and distances from the current location. The parking stations can also be shown on a map, but Help2Park won't provide directions unless the user has Navigon's paid MobileNavigator GPS app installed.

Navigon Help2Park doesn't detect parking spots on the street, so it only provides results for dedicated parking stations.

Navigon has also released a free update for its Android turn-by-turn navigation app, MobileNavigator. The update includes Android 2.3 Gingerbread support and a new pedestrian flashlight function that turns an Android smartphone into a flashlight for navigating in the dark.

Navigon MobileNavigator for Android is available for $60.94 from the Android market, but is free for Samsung Galaxy S and Samsung Galaxy Tab users.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
