TeleNav GPS Navigator launches for BlackBerry Storm


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


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.

It comes with everything you’ve come to expect from a GPS suite: written and spoken direction, access to points of interest, even gas prices and traffic information. Uniquely to BlackBerrys, speech recognition is also available, allowing you speak the name of a business or address for turn-by-turn directions. The whole thing comes with a $9.99/month price tag, and is available on the 8310, 8800 and 8820. They’ll be demoing the whole deal in booth #3428 at CTIA, so give us some impressions if you get a chance to check it out.
