pocketgpsworld.comThe first GPS application for iPod touch has been submitted to the Apple App Store for approval. GeoLife and PosiMotion have announced that they have submitted an app which enables turn-by-turn navigation on both the iPod touch and the iPhone.

If the application is approved, it will be the first navigation solution available for the iPod touch.

Navigation is made possible through a combination of Geolife's Navmii software and PosiMotion's G-Fi mobile network/GPS router transforming an iPod touch into a personal navigation device with smart routing, interactive maps and spoken directions.

Peter Atalla, CEO of Navmii said: "There are more than 20 million iPod touch users, yet to date, there has been no way to use the iPod touch for accurate, turn-by-turn navigation. This is about to change with Geolife's Navmii and PosiMotion's G-Fi. Combined these will provide secure location data to any iPod touch device. We have also submitted Navmii for the iPhone to the Apple App Store, which will enable more than 30 million iPhone users to download and use Navmii's intuitive navigation application on the iPhone."

Olivier Hennessy, CEO of PosiMotion said: "Bringing turn-by-turn navigation to the iPod touch has been our number one goal since we started PosiMotion. We are very proud to be the first to have achieved this goal by teaming up with Geolife, one of the most reputable navigation companies. To celebrate this achievement, the G-Fi will go on sale for $99, while supplies last."

The Navmii iPhone app will be available for 29.99 for UK maps and $39.99 for US maps. A combined G-Fi mobile network/GPS router and Navmii software application for iPod touch will also be available once the Navmii app has been approved.
