NaviComputer Beta

NaviComputer for Windows Phone 8 – BETA version released

Hello everybody,

several months have passed since NaviComputer got its last updates on the Windows Mobile platform and it took a lot of time to get it started with Windows Phone.

But finally here are some good news for all Windows Phone 8 users:

A first beta version is available in the Windows Phone store for people who want to join the betatesting.

This is the first version, there are several features still missing and things to be improved. But it can already be used and hopefully won't crash too often.
I am looking forward to get as much feedback and suggestions as possible from the betatesters. First updates are already in the pipeline and I hope I will be able to provide updates in short cycles within the next few weeks.

 

If you want to try out NaviComputer on your Windows Phone 8 device and join the betatesting team, please send an email at development@navicomputer.com including your Microsoft Live Email address. You will receive an email with the link to NaviComputer in the Windows Phone Store afterwards.

 

PS: Of course you can keep and use your old .nmap offline maps also with the Windows Phone version. Also you may use your modified MapSources.xml for custom map sources. To transfer files such as maps and tracks from and to the phone, NaviComputer has a built-in mechanism to exchange files with the PC software "NaviMapper". You will also receive a download link for the new version of NaviMapper.

    • Hello Hans de Nie,

      actually we have plans for a Windows 8 app and we made some first tests on this platform as well, but it’s to early to make any promises…
