AT&T iPhone users now have access to the TeleNav GPS app that launched last month for the competing Verizon iPhone, with the recent release of the software for AT&T subscribers.
- Turn-by-turn directions that include spoken street names
- An automatic re-route function
- Automatic content updates
- Users access to other applications (including music library) in their iPhone while TeleNav navigates
The system also features 3D map images, similarly to the recently released Verizon VZ Navigator for Android OS phones.
The TeleNav GPS app is available in two varieties: an advanced version, which includes all of the features mentioned above, and a standard version that only includes the basic navigation and local search capabilities.
In either form, the app is free to download, and all users will have access to the advanced version free of charge for the first 30 days. After 30 days, users can access the standard version at no cost, or can pay either $2.99 for a month or $21.99 for a year of access to the advanced functions.
TeleNav’s GPS software is available in the Android Marketplace as well, for Verizon customers. One year of premium service costs $19.99 for early adopters who download before March 31. After March 31, the price will double to $39.99.
The iPhone version for both AT&T and Verizon customers is currently available in the App Store, and the Android version is currently available in the Android Marketplace exclusively for Verizon subscribers.
