Well I have to say I am disappointed in Navigon. I wanted to buy the "MyRegion" at the reduced price for June. Now I discover to my surprise that Alaska (and Hawaii) are not part of the Western U.S.!! So, since I am Alaska, I would have to buy the USA & Canada version of the App (I'm glad Navigon at least recognizes that Alaska is part of the USA) for $79.99, instead of the MyRegion for $14.99. A lot of lost credibility here!
