Users can select those services as their preferred navigation solution to map route within Poynt, allowing them to take advantage of audible turn-by-turn directions and auto-rerouting.

Travel Channel launches BlackBerry app


Travel Channel GoHave you ever watch the Travel Channel? They’ve got an impressive lineup of shows, and have no doubt provided plenty of great insights on international locales through their programming. Well, they’ve just recently launched a mobile application for BlackBerry powered by Earthcomber which not only lets you tap into spots covered by their programs, but find slightly less exotic destinations, like, say, the 7/11. Not only good for directions and maps, you can also keep track of friends, and discover new places in your area that fit with your interests. Looks like a handy little app, and worth a shot.


WES Exhibitor Spotlight: TeleNav


TeleNav logoTeleNav is a leader in mobile GPS needs. They were the company behind AT&T’s GPS offering, and were chosen as one of Pinstack’s Five Star picks. TeleNav GPS Navigator offers everything you’d expect from a GPS suite: directions, both written and spoken, points of interest, traffic warnings, and more. You can preview routes before you set out, and if you miss a turn the software will automatically create a new one to get you back on track. It also offers 2D and 3D maps and a bunch of customization options. Considering the growing popularity of GPS in BlackBerrys, they should have some very nice demos on display at WES.
