Quick!Â What’s almost as good as having a Garmin Android phone?Â Having one that does everything a Garmin GPS unit does, silly!Â Since we won’t betting a Garmin/Asus phone anytime soon, we’re extremely excited to at least have all the functionality of one.
In around two weeks time, G1 owners will be able to test drive a 30-day trial version of TeleNav’s GPS Nagivator software.Â True turn-by-turn directions are coming to the G1!Â The app looks like it’s going to be slammed with features and functions.
After the 30-day trial, users can sign up for the service at $10 a month.Â So what do you get for your money?Â An awful lot actually.
- Current weather
- Search by business
- 3D moving maps
- Name and address recognition
- Traffic alerts
- Restaurant ratings/reviews
- Search by gas price
- Night time map color
- A whole bunch more!
At $120 for a full year it’s not a bad price.Â It’s better than dropping $150 or more all at once for a GPS unit, plus it maintains all the other cool Android features in your G1!Â According to Matthew Miller of ZDNet, there will be $99/1 year and $249/4 year options available as well.Â There’s a great hands on review over there if you’re interested.Â We’ve grabbed the video from his post for you guys.
Look for the app to be available directly from TeleNav on February 24th and then later in the Android Market!
