Jet-setting across Europe just got a whole lot easier for BlackBerry users. Our good friends from Telenav have launched the European version of TeleNav GPS Navigator at the 3GSM World Congress conference in Barcelona (I think I’m going to go next year…). It’s going to be available in around 15 European countries and you’ll be looking at a fee of “5.00 pounds Sterling/8.00 euro” per month.
TeleNav GPS Navigator, immediately available on a variety of BlackBerryÂ® smartphones — including the new BlackBerryÂ® 8800 — includes GPS-enabled, turn-by-turn voice and on- screen driving directions, addresses and directions to business and community locations, as well as full-colour, 3D moving maps.
“Our navigation application is mobile, easy-to-use, feature-rich and less expensive than in-car systems or personal navigation devices,” said Ian Tredgett, business director for TeleNav’s European operations. “Through strong customer adoption, we have proven our leadership in the United States, China and Latin America. Now we are thrilled to be extending our services to mobile users in Europe as well.”
