TeleNav Launch Turn By Turn Nav for Android Phones in US
Yesterday TeleNav announced the launch of their GPS Navigator application for T-Mobile''s G1 Google Android handset. This is the first turn by turn navigation application to be offered on the Android platform and leaves Apple''s iPhone looking rather silly with Apple''s bizarre blocking of such applications on their platform.
TeleNav''s solution is an off-board solution with maps being downloaded to the device as required and features traffic alerts, internet enables searching , fuel prices, weather and even restaurant reviews.
It will be made available as a 30-day trial direct from TeleNav''s web site beginning 24th February and users can continue to use the application after the trial period for $9.99 per month.
Additional features are Full 3D colour mapping, voice and on screen turn directions, landscape and portrait modes, automatic re-routing and speech recognition for address entry and business search.
Users can view current weather information for their location and also a 6 day forecast for their current position and a destination of their choice in the U.S.
Subscribers can pre-plan trips on-line and a plug-in for Internet Explorer, Firefox and Google Chrome toolbars will provide users with an easy one-click way of sending addresses to their phone from any web page.
