TeleNav coming to AT&T


TeleNavOur trusty LBS provider, TeleNav, is now offering the handy services of TeleNav Traffic to AT&T customers using a BlackBerry 8800, BlackBerry 8100, BlackBerry 8700c, and the newfangled BlackBerry 8300. AT&T joins the ranks of Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile (among others) to carry TeleNav GPS Navigator, even though it’s been packing Track for awhile now.

Traffic is a free upgrade for anyone already subscribing to the TeleNav GPS Navigator for $10/month to get up-to-date traffic information and quick rerouting options. The 8800’s built-in GPS receiver gets some use out of the service, which means one less Bluetooth doohickey to carry around if you’ve got one. TeleNav has a solid reputation, which is important considering how hard it is to find a good GPS system these days. GPS was right up there with Wi-Fi on the hype-o-meter at WES, helped in no small part by TeleNav’s presence there.
