I have to make a quick trip up to Boston to see a few people. I was hoping to take the train but the schedule just doesn’t work. The same was true for flights. As a result, I’ll be driving to Boston shortly and then, later tonight, making my way back home. The trip is long enough on its own without my taking any wrong turns so I want/need a good GPS program. I looked at all my options and decided to go with TeleNav’s offering.
The app now comes with voice-guidance and, thanks to competition in the GPS app market, is a lot less expensive. In fact, you can get 12 months of voice-guidance for under $10 right now.
Here’s what the company has to say about it.
If you want navigation that gets you and gets you there, this app is for you. TeleNav GPS Plus helps over 24 million* people find where to go and how to get there with:
Speak your destination without needing to type
Clear voice-guided turn-by-turn directions spoken by people
Cheap gas price finder—updated daily!
Traffic-guided routing helps you avoid traffic jams
Automatic rerouting if you miss a turn or take a detour
I especially like having the ability to say my destination and have the app do the rest. (After using Siri for the last week and a half typing in search fields seems a bit archaic!)
And then there are the app’s other features.
Maps with live visual traffic flows
Automatic rerouting gets you back
Arrival check-ins on Facebook
Shake to Go Address
Nighttime Optimized Navigation
Play My iPod (iOS multitasking)
It is a feature rich GPS app at an amazing low price for the year. I’ll have more to say after 9 hours using it today. You can learn more.
