Cingular Introduces Location Based and Navigation Services on Nokia Mobile Phones
Cingular Wireless is introducing a wireless navigation system with 3D maps and "fuzzy search", based on TeleNav GPS Navigator running on the Nokia E62 device.

Using TeleNav GPS Navigator on the Nokia E62 device, customers will receive turn-by-turn directions while driving and view 3D moving maps on the device's high-resolution screen, which measures 320 x 240 pixels.

Just like an in-car navigation system, the 3D maps turn, move and stop as the driver does the same, while also displaying a realistic image of the streets the driver is approaching and streets they are passing. Users can also pan and zoom the map to view surrounding streets.

Other features provided with TeleNav GPS Navigator on the Nokia E62 device include searching "along-the-route" (ATR), allowing users to look up a business, place of interest, and even the lowest gas prices along their predetermined routes. In addition, TeleNav GPS Navigator on the Nokia E62 device includes a predictive address entry, which detects and automatically fills in addresses based on current or commonly-used locations, as well as corrective entry, which automatically revises information the user may have misspelled.

The Biz Finder funtion allows users to find businesses and services, including Wi-Fi hotspots, ATMs, restaurants, hotels, gas stations and navigate to them with the click of a button. Biz Finder also allows users to look up and call the phone number for a business.

With Fuel Finder users will be able to find the lowest gas prices within a five-mile or wider radius from their current position.

In addition to the Nokia E62 device, the TeleNav GPS Navigator service is available to Cingular business customers on the GPS-enabled HP iPAQ hw6920 Series Mobile Communicator, the Cingular 8525 and 8125 Pocket PCs, and the Palm Treo 650. A Bluetooth GPS receiver is required for non-GPS enabled wireless phones.
