Navigon is currently promoting its range of navigation apps for Samsung Android smartphones, with the satellite navigation specialists offering a 30 per cent discount on the price of three dedicated premium GPS apps.

Since partnering with Samsung, Navigon has made its turn-by-turn navigation programs available to users of Galaxy mobile devices, such as the original Galaxy S, the S II, the Tab, the Mini and the Ace.

The Samsung Galaxy S II, which was released in May, comes preloaded with the basic Navigon app.
