TeleNav and Sprint Out New Android App
TeleNav and Sprint today announced a new version of its mapping and navigation application for the Android platform. The revised app includes a new dashboard that provides real-time information on the user's location and local traffic and commute times. The application also comes with three different home screen widgets, customizable car icons, and cockpit view. Other features include: up to three different route recommendations based on traffic conditions; quick access to favorite/recent destinations; local search, reviews, and gas prices; voice search and voice guidance for turn-by-turn directions. The application is free to download and use from Sprint as long as the customer is subscribed to a data plan, though some of the more advanced features require monthly fees. It works on devices running Android 2.3 Gingerbread such as the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch, HTC EVO 3D, Kyocera Milano, and Samsung Replenish.
