Umm, yes, they're quite synonymous, and used interchangeably, if you look at any of the marketing literature for Telenav, or the GPS units like Garmin or TomTom.

I suspect Apple put that in there for liability reasons, so they never get sued for someone running into a concrete bridge abutment while they're looking at the Telenav-style screen. Still VERY limiting compared to pretty much ANY other phone out there with GPS.
