TeleNav GPS Navigator For Android Reviewed (Verdict: Impressive)

The guys at KickingTires have put the TeleNav turn-by-turn GPS Navigator for Android and the G1 through its paces and have emerged feeling that the software is impressive, but overpriced.

Indeed, while they felt that the software scored well in major categories like ease of use, routing, map quality and accuracy, the value factor struck a major blow to the final verdict. After all, it's hard to justify spending $10 a month, $99 a year or $249 for four years on a service for your phone when quality, dedicated GPS devices can be had for under $200. Still, if portability is a major issue for you, KickingTires is calling the Android TeleNav "the best turn-by-turn navigation system for a mobile phone available to date." And it will be available on more and more Android devices in the near future. [Kicking Tires]
