Browser Based TurnbyTurn Navigation Announced

TeleNav have announced the first of its kind, browser based, turn-by-turn GPS navigation solution.

Thanks to the advent of HTML5, the new wunderkind web language, it is now possible to offer a viable, app free navigation platform that requires nothing more than a web browser and a GPS receiver to bring full, voice-guided, turn-by-turn navigation to mobile devices.

TeleNav are initially launching the service to developers ahead of a public launch early next year. It supports full colour moving maps, audio and automatic re-routing.

Sal Dhanani, co-founder and vice president of products for TeleNav said, "with one line of code, you can give your customers one-click access to premium, voice-guided turn-by-turn directions to any location, including hotels, restaurants, merchants or deal locations."

Is that "Premium" like the phone calls etc? i.e. not free?


If it tastes good - it's fattening.

Two of them are obesiting!!

Until mobile data becomes cheaper and people get more of it (i.e. unlimitied) then I won't be using services like this. Besides Vodafone have more 3G blackspots then I care to think about so maintaining a reliable connection for navigation will be interesting.

I'll stick with my TomTom thank you Smile
