Cingular navigation services on Nokia mobiles
Cingular Wireless is about to introduce on the Nokia E62 mobile phones a wireless
navigation system with 3D maps and "fuzzy search", based on TeleNav GPS Navigator.
This system will help drivers to receive turn-by-turn directions while driving
and also view 3D moving maps on the device's high-resolution screen, measuring
320 x 240 pixels. As you turn, move and stop the car, these maps do the same and
simultaneously show a realistic image of the streets you are approaching and streets
you are passing. .
The navigator comes with some other attractive features like searching
"along-the-route" (ATR), or allowing users to look up a business, place of interest,
and also the lowest gas prices along their predetermined routes. You also get a
predictive address entry, which detects and automatically fills in addresses
based on current or commonly-used locations, as well as corrective entry, that
automatically corrects information the user may have misspelled. There is also
a Biz Finder function by which we can locate businesses and services, including
Wi-Fi hotspots, ATMs, restaurants, hotels, gas stations and navigate to them with the click of a button.
