TeleNav GPS for iPhone 4, iPad 2: Free maps, inexpensive turn-by-turn service

At CTIA in Orlando, Florida, TeleNav today announced a new GPS solution for iPhone 4 and iPad 2 (with 3G) users. Available immediately in the App Store, TeleNav GPS(free) gives starts off providing 30 free days of personal navigation service, including spoken turn-by-turn directions, 3D moving maps, auto-rerouting, and enhanced search of over 22 million points of interest.
After 30 days, users can choose to just stay with the map and search service, or they can make an in-app purchase of $2.99 per month or $21.99 a year for the full navigation service. The company already has over 20 million subscribers to their services, one of which is the AT&T Navigator app.
That app, which is specific to AT&T subscribers, is also free to download, but costs $9.99 per month or $69.99 per year. The AT&T Navigator app provides many more features at this point, including real-time traffic updates, the ability to download maps for off-line use, and one-touch speech recognition.
TeleNav introduced TeleNav GPS for Verizon iPhone back in early February. That version of the app is no longer available, and has been replaced by this more universal edition.
At $2.99 per month, many iPhone 4 users who might balk at the monthly expense of the AT&T Navigator app may be willing to give TeleNav GPS a try. The app supports both English and Spanish language directions.
