Telenav GPS Navigator - Review & Giveaway!!

Your Cell Phone Can Be a GPS Device!!

Telenav GPS Navigator Rescued Me

 I recently ventured outside of my comfort zone and took my 20 month old son out for a shopping trip to a totally unfamiliar area over an hour away from home. We’re still fairly new to IL so I’m still learning my way around. While we shopped, the weather turned nasty -- typical Chicagoland winter-- and when it was time to go, I found myself nervously questioning the route back home. Furthermore, my hubby was away, and I had no one to call. Yikes! Then I remembered my Blackberry cell phone came with a trial app for some sort of GPS service and so I decided to give it a try.

The app was TeleNav’s GPS Navigator. I simply clicked on the icon to download it. Within just a minute or two the app was downloaded and ready for use! I didn’t really have time to look at the info or help file for instructions, I really just needed to get home - so I just gave it a try. The program is so easy - the menus are a cinch! I figured it out literally in seconds, and even selected “Prefer Streets” to avoid major traffic on the highway, and was immediately and safely on my way home. I was so impressed with this program - speedy, convenient and super easy to use! It was so easy to hear, understand and follow the voice directions. I thought of how many other times I wish I’d had this program and how other moms and families could really benefit from Telenav's GPS Navigator.
Some of the features of this application are as follows:

  • Turn by turn driving directions by voice and on-screen. If you miss a turn or take a different street - TeleNav recalculates the route in seconds. 
  • Find Hotels, Restaurants, ATMs, Hospitals, Wi-Fi spots, whatever you need - close by without calling directory assistance. 
  • Traffic and detour alerts Pre-plan trips online  
  • Low price Gasoline finder 
  • Spot Marker - mark a spot or meeting place to return to it easily 
  • Compass. Use it walking or driving. 
  • Send an address from any website online to Telenav
 You can check HERE to see if your phone can become a handheld GPS device with Telenav! They have a list of compatible devices and wireless carriers.

Telenav is running a promotion where you can try their product Free for 30 days. After the trial, the cost is $9.99 per month. This may sound costly to some folks - but you aren’t having to purchase a separate, clunky, expensive GPS unit and have to worry about it being stolen from your car or purchasing expensive software updates. Telenav is conveniently operated from your cell phone, and has automatic updates of full color 3D maps and businesses. I mean really--How convenient is that?!

OK Y’all - Here’s the REALLY FAB, TOTALLY COOL PART---

I recently bragged about Telenav in a tweet to my Twitter friends. This caught Telenav’s attention. They were gracious enough to give me a 1 year subscription to try and they have also kindly offered to give one of my lucky readers a One Year Subscription for FREE! (Valued at $69.99)

I love that it gives directions by voice and on-screen! I've checked out a few GPS programs for my phone and many didn't come with voices...so weird.
