Telenav turn-by-turn for Android coming in 2 weeks


Were you disappointed by this mornings news that the other nuvifone wouldn’t be sportin’ the droid? So were we. Then we realized it wasn’t so much because we cared for the new nuvifone, but because we just wanted turn-by-turn navigation on an Android phone. Turns out, we don’t have much longer to wait.

According to their new product page, we should be using Telenav’s GPS Navigator for Android to find the nearest Starbucks by February 24th. You’ll get 30 days free, after which point it’ll set you back $10 bucks a month. So what does a monthly Hamilton get you?

  • 3d maps, portrait and landscape support
  • Name and speech recognition
  • Auto reroute
  • Traffic Alerts
  • Business Finder
  • Gas prices
  • Search along route
  • Restaurant ratings
  • Commute alerts
  • Weather
  • Night-mode

In other words, just about everything you might ask of it. We’d rather have dropped a one-time fee of $50-$80 bucks than pay for it by the calendar – but hey, we’ll take what we can get.
