VZ Navigator vs. Telenav on the BlackBerry Storm

21 Comments

With most standalone GPS devices being of the touch screen variety, it is no surprise that the BlackBerry Storm is the perfect platform for a GPS program.  Historically, Verizon only offered VZ Navigator for it’s device, including the BlackBerry Storm.  As you may have seen from the video I shot during CES, Telenav has entered the arena with it’s own GPS application for the Storm.  We’ve decided that it would be a great idea to give you a quick comparison between VZ Nav vs Telenav on the Storm.

TeleNav GPS Navigator launches for BlackBerry Storm

Comments

New BlackBerry Storm users looking for software can take heart, as TeleNav has put a late Christmas present in your stocking with TeleNav GPS Navigator for Verizon Wireless subscribers. Here’s a quick look at what users can expect from TeleNav GPS Navigator:

    * Full-color 3D moving maps
    * Voice and on-screen directions
    * Speech recognition (optional for address entry)
    * Traffic alerts with one-click rerouting and an on-screen ETA
    * 10 million business listings
    * Gas price listings
    * Wi-Fi hotspot finder
    * Pedestrian mode so you can use it while walking around town
    * My TeleNav online preplanning

TeleNav is obviously up against the entrenched competition of Verizon Navigator on the BlackBerry Storm, so they’ve decided to sweeten the pot with a free 30-day trial. TeleNav GPS Navigator is regularly $9.99/month for unlimited use. You can find more information about the free trial at the link below.

WES Exhibitor Spotlight: TeleNav

Comment

TeleNav 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.
