Accessibility Comments: 

I am happy to be able to edit this entry, the new version 2.0 of this app is accessible. You can now enter addresses, search for points of interest, and change settings. There is one odd labeling issue I found. When searching for points of interest, there are 2 blank items. The first one searches using google, the second one seems to search the built in maps. I was a bit concerned that many controls would be unlabeled because of the complete inaccessibility of the previous version of this app, but I was pleasantly surprised. Other than the issue I just mentioned, the app is totally useable, so this gives us another option for GPS. I'm not sure if it provides instructions in walking mode, I haven't tested that yet. If you want to ad another GPS option to your iphone, you may want to purchase this app, Magellan has fixed 99 percent of the accessibility issues that were in the previous version.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.

Other Comments: 

This app uses the maps from navteq, so it should be similar to what is provided by navigon.
