AndNav - How much would you spend?

Postby plusminus » Tue Oct 14, 2008 2:52 pm

Hello Community,

Thank you for participating in this simple poll :)
Notes:
(There is no realtime-navigation!, because Google does not allow that with their map-data. BUT realtime navigation will be the big plus in AndNav2 which no more operates on Google's map data)

If the OSM (I suppose this is about AndNav 2), I wouldn't spend €15, because OSM is (unfortunately) not complete enough at all... :(

Yes, unfortunately... but every AndNav(1+2) user constantly contributes to OSM and so improves it. :) If I can built a reasonable userbase, I think OSM will dramatically improve :!:

Hey plusminus.

I think it's ok to sell a navigation system for ~20$.

But there is a problem:
When the user spents money, he wants to get a working navigation system. Not one which has corrupted map data. I think there would be a lot of dissatisfied people if you sell such a system.

Also, the spreading of a payed-application will not get too big compared to a free application. And you need a big spreading for supporting OSM.

So why selling the application? In Web3.0 :roll: there are other revenue models!

Such a navigation system, with all-time internet access, is predestinated for location based advertisment.
Think about a navigation system that recognizes, that you drive in a new city at 10PM. It knows that you drove 6 hours so far and so it displays you the next Hotel! Or a good restaurant! Or that walmart sells the G1 for 10$..

This is the next level of advertisment - this is why google develops Android.

Greetings,
Michael the Androidianer :wink:

You should make a service which is supposed to be always on, also when not using andnav, that would speed osm a lot. Though it should upload anonymously!

I'll do a separate Service-App too, but not directly in AndNav, as running GPS all the time consumes a lot of memory and thats not what AndNav is supposed to do :)

Agree. It may be better not to charge end users, but to expand registered user base and charge enterprise clients finally.

Hi nicholas,

Thanks for building a decent app in the AndNav1. I have it installed on my G1 and find it to be decent. However, if you were to charge for anything this version does I would delete it real quick. I am willing, however, to probably spend up to $30, maybe slightly more, if AndNav2 delivers on everything you say it will. I would like a realtime nav system that competes with Garmin. I've taken a gamble on getting the G1 with hopes that developers such as yourself would deliver stellar apps due to the power of the phone's software. I was originally planning on purchasing the Nuvifone when(if) it comes out as this realtime nav function is VERY important to me.

On a side note, you should seek out a hardware designer and start working on a car mounting device for the G1 that will turn on AndNav when the phone is placed in the cradle and will also enable bluetooth speaker/headset at the same time.

I wish you the best of success as it appears you are already solidly moving in the proper direction. I absolutely cannot wait to see AndNav2 when you release it! (Also, I'd prefer, as i'm sure everyone else would, if you could make it at least a 5 day trial version before we must open up the wallet and purchase an app that is unproven).

Usually I don't use maps, and so spending my bucks on that doesn't seem worthy to me...

I'd consider throwing in a few bucks depending on the feature set and how it compared to similar alternatives.

I think around $10. I think that's fair enough.
