Falk wants only 20 euros for his new ROOF-navigation on the iPhone. We have tested, how to beat Falk Navigator plus ROOF in practice.
- Falk Navigator plus ROOF in the test
- Data sheet
The price is hot: 20 euros for a complete Navi app included on the device saved maps – new Falk Navigator plus ROOF undercuts so the closely related ALK CoPilot to five euros. Who wants to use a data connection on the road not constantly – as is mandatory for the Billignavis of Skobbler or Navfree – wrong here exactly. The European version is pleasingly priced 35 euros.
However Falk saves again something elsewhere: so there is only a 2D view as the default, the 3D can book an in-app purchase for 8.99 euros. The function “optimal routes” there is at the same price, traffic and fuel price service cost 7.99 euros each per year. The surcharges for the European version are identical.
In the full stage of Falk Navigator is no longer cheaper than the competition – but you can navigate very reasonable even in the basic version: operation both on the way there is to complain about little.
The extensive menus respond very quickly to input, typing in an instant through the settings and has the whole system quickly under control. Slightly disturbing: The optional functions are still available in the menu – if you click on it, an error message stating, but please upgrade to buy. It can annoy rather.
Without a tour guide
On the way, Falk Navigator without additional apps made a good figure. Especially the successful cockpit view below, but also cards graphics and voice output cannot compete with the best. Liked also the route calculation, but often is, the option is the “optimal routes” on the heart.
Compared to the previous versions deleted Falk however has the Guide extensions. I’m sorry – that has always drawn Falk and highlighted.
