TeleNav Unveils New Version of TeleNav GPS Navigatorxxx8482;
New features include one-touch speech recognition,
Sunnyvale, Calif. xxx8211; March 22, 2010 xxx8211;TeleNav, one of the largest global wireless navigation services providers with more than 13 million subscribers, today announced the upcoming launch of TeleNav GPS Navigator 6.0. With this new version, customers will receive several new features including one-touch speech recognition, lane assist, red light traffic camera alerts and speed limit alerts. In addition, customers can receive turn-by-turn directions to their destination even if they drive out of wireless coverage.
Increasing Safety and Improving the Navigation Experience
With this launch, TeleNav introduces single-click speech input which allows the user to press one button and use common phrases such as xxx8220;Drive to 1130 Kifer Road, Sunnyvale, California,xxx8221; xxx8220;Search for Starbucks,xxx8221; or xxx8220;Show me a map of Sunnyvale, California.xxx8221; Customers can also say xxx8220;Drive homexxx8221; to launch directions to their home or use a new shortcut option, xxx8220;Homexxx8221; in the xxx8220;Drive Toxxx8221; menu of the application.
Other new features include:
· Lane assist for major roads and intersections to help drivers perform upcoming maneuvers
· Audio alerts for upcoming intersections reportedly equipped with red light traffic cameras
· On-screen freeway speed limit information with visual warnings when drivers exceed the posted speed limit
· xxx8220;Local Appsxxx8221; option in the applicationxxx8217;s main menu, giving customers quick access to local movie information, weather and commute alerts
Navigation Out of Wireless Coverage
Using unique, patent-pending technology, the new release of TeleNav GPS Navigator now downloads the entire route and surrounding map data onto the driverxxx8217;s phone. This ensures users will continue to receive turn-by-turn directions to their selected destination if they drive out of wireless coverage - even if they miss multiple turns along the way. In addition, the service will allow customers the ability to start a route back to their original location while out of wireless coverage. Once they drive back into wireless coverage, they will again have full service access in order to get directions to a new destination as well as receive real-time information such as traffic alerts.
Focusing on Customer Feedback and Innovation
