TeleNav’s turn-by-turn GPS navigation application is now available for the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS. This service — which is being re-branded as AT&T Navigator — offers features not available on the Google Maps app that ships with the iPhone.
“AT&T Navigator has been one of our most popular and best-performing apps since we launched it last year,” said Mark Collins, a VP at AT&T Mobility. “With the new iPhone OS 3.0 software, we’re expanding the advantages of true turn-by-turn navigation — both voice and on-screen directions — to millions more customers.”
This service for iPhone models includes real-time voice and visual guidance, including street names, automatic re-routes, ETA and total mileage updates. Drivers can also choose among multiple route options, including ‘traffic optimized’; ‘fastest’; ‘prefer streets’; ‘prefer highways’ and ‘pedestrian mode’.
AT&T Navigator also offers traffic Alerts, with route monitoring and proactive searches every five minutes for traffic congestion or crashes.
As with AT&T Navigator subscriptions on other devices, the app will be billed directly by AT&T and included on the customer’s monthly statement
