Turn-By-Turn Directions with TeleNav
It was a disappointment to browse through the AppStore and not see any turn-by-turn software. The much anticipated TomTom app was nowhere to be found. No need to fear TeleNav is here!
Coming soon to a 3g iPhone near you Telenav will fill the vacancy with their turn-by-turn navigation app utilizing the GPS build into the 3g iPhone. Some features will be colored 3D moving maps along with voice guidance and traffic aware routing. Price hasn't been mentioned yet but it is coming soon, and once you buy it it's yours, no subscriptions to keep it working. TeleNav already has GPS software for mobiles on both AT&T and Sprint, and popular opinion is that their software is leaps and bounds beyond Verizon's VZ Navigator. We're optimistic that this app will hold up to our expectations.

$10 more a month means $30 for data instead of $20. I am barely able to pay my $70 a month bill, I don't need another $10 tacked on.Phil Nolan

no turn by turn nav is the reason I didn't get 3G iphone. only thing I really cared for. all the other issues like speaker and what not were never an issue for me.
If this does come out I'll get a 3G iphone.

We knew that was going to be the case. With specific language in the SDK license preventing the creation of software that allows real time navigation it will be the jailbreakers only who have this.

the "no turn by turn" simply applies to not being able to use the Google Maps section of the phone for the turn by turn. Since these tomtom and telenav programs use their own maps, it is aloud. From the pics i saw, i like the tomtom better...but if it never comes telenav would be fine!

Seriously, this makes me interested in a 3g again.

i'm sure it won't be the cheapest program out there, but, to me, it would be very worth it. As long as there is no annual fee or subscription (i don't think there will be) i'm all over it!
