Cingular Gets Directions From TeleNav

Today Cingular announced the availability of the latest version of TeleNav GPS Navigator on the Nokia E62 PDA. This version of TeleNav GPS Navigator provides 3D moving maps that follow your turns and even stops when you stop your vehicle. Cingular’s Nokia E62 users can also look up points of interest or business’ along their route. TeleNav GPS Navigator also includes “fuzzy search”, which is predictive address entry. Fuzzy search predicts commonly searched for locations and also revises any misspelling by the user. Other features of TeleNav GPS Navigator include…

Voice and on-screen turn-by-turn directions – Users may enter or call in
a destination and TeleNav GPS Navigator computes the route. During the
drive, users get up-to-the minute guidance and will automatically be
re-routed if you miss a turn. Users can also preview their routes
before they begin driving and specify preferences including highways
and streets.
Biz Finder – Allows users to find businesses and services, including
Wi-Fi hotspots, ATMs, restaurants, hotels, gas stations and easily
navigate to them with the click of a button. Biz Finder also allows
users to quickly look up and call the phone number for a business.
Fuel Finder – Allows users to save money by finding the lowest gas
prices within a five-mile or wider radius.
Spot Marker – Helps users easily find their car wherever it is parked
it, such as in a large parking lot or on an unfamiliar downtown street.
Pedestrian Mode – Allows users to use TeleNav GPS Navigator while they
are walking to help guide them on long walks or through crowded
downtown streets.
My Favorites – Allows users to save addresses for easy access later.
