iGo Primo
- very powerful navigation software for in-car use with Android Car DVD. iGO Primo for Android is an extremely appreciated app/software by GPS users all over the world and especially Europe. It was initially developed for GPS and PDAs with WinCE, but recently developers decided to infiltrate the Android platform as well, with this full-featured software.

iGO Primo (Android) makes itself noticed through an intuitive menu, easily accessible options and map support from most providers. It is worth to mention that this GPS app works offline and  accepts maps from Navteq, TomTom or the East European provider TopMap.

On the main screen, we have the map displayed, on the left and the right - the search options for a destination, editing options for the current route and program settings. By tapping on the map screen, it will be displayed in full screen. The map and the route to be followed will be displayed in color schemes which can be customized in various ways and simultaneously speed, time and distance left until reaching our destination will be shown.

 On the same main navigation screen street name and direction changes are also shown. The map and the viewing angle can be easily modified on screen, same as 2d or 3d display.


In the upper right corner, we have a quick menu which helps us find a destination quickly, editing a route and many other options. Route display can be done classically through a 2D map where we can clearly see how we advance on the road.

From there, we can easily edit the route by choosing a waypoint on the map.  Also, we can block certain turns which we do not want to take, and the map will adjust automatically. iGO Primo is extremely flexible, and this is what makes it different from other software products.

Moreover, the routes are being calculated according to the traffic history and smart routing profiles for the main European roads stored in the map files.

In the main menu of iGO Primo - we can also find other interesting stuff such as a media player, a currency exchange, measuring unit system for clothes in different regions, and something which I found extremely useful speed and alcohol restrictions for each country, driver’s responsibilities in winter time, and more.
 
This is an excellent way to avoid fines. Since we are on the subject of fines, iGO Primo comes with radar alerts as well as other similar software as TMC service which is 3G activated. This service which is paid separately helps us to avoid problem areas; the iGO Primo software receives live information regarding accidents, highway works or traffic jams which could slow us down on our journey, and it recalculates the best route automatically if it is set in this mode.
 
On the alert side, iGO Primo for Android displays on the screen, with a couple of hundred meters ahead warnings about the areas we pass through (dangerous curbs, animals in the area) which is a very useful function that helps avoid accidents and keeps you focused.   It has voice guidance, and we can choose between  TTS (text-to-speech) or normal voices.
 
iGO Primo also supports offline mode, so you don’t necessary need 3G or 4G data connection to be able to use this software. Routes can be simulated live without a satellite signal available.
 
Due to multiple maps being used some errors can occur but these are present on every navigation software and iGO Primo is no exception to this.
 
I recommend using Navteq maps for iGO Primo which seems to have fewer errors than others. Starting this year the Tomtom (TeleAtlas) developer began developing extremely accurate, detailed maps which are also compatible with this navigation software.
 
Other features
 
If the interest points aren’t on the map, we can find websites, which are perfectly compatible with this software where we can download interest points for the countries or areas we are interested in.
 
Fans of this software have developed a series of skins which give additional features to the software. These skins, although not 100% compatible with any version, provide a richer interface feature wise, customizable icons and new color schemes.
 
iGO Primo skins bring functions such as the choice between sets of maps, compass display, setting customized icons for points of interest, transited city and country, etc.  Also, the skins give beauty and complexity to the software,  and they are permanently updated by fans. They can be found on dedicated forums.    
 
We like iGO Primo for Android because:
 
– the map screen is well designed graphically and has comprehensive information.
– the menu is extremely accurate and easy to use compared to other navigation software.
– of the possibility to choose maps from multiple suppliers and creating alternative routes for each processed one.
– we like that iGO Primo provides a truck mode as well for truck drivers.
– multiple alerts for driver’s safety and other traffic participants.
