AT&T Navigator Comes to App Store

Filed under: Mobile Apps,News,OS X Software — brizz20 @ 13:47

TomTom got all the publicity at WWDC, however several Turn by Turn directions have made it to the App Store well before TomTom. I have been wondering if the service that AT&T offer blackberry customers (and other phones) would make it to the iPhone. Well  AT&T has answered this question by releasing a navigation app to the App Store.

The app is free to download and works with iPhone 3G and 3GS with OS 3.0 installed, though a 9.99 monthly charge will be automatically added to your AT&T bill. Deleting the app from your phone will not deactivate the service, you must call AT&T if you no longer wish to receive the service. I am curious to find out if after downloading the app, I can move it to another iPhone that synchronized with the same iTunes account and still only be charged the 9.99.

Features include voice guided and 3D directions, automatic rerouting, free regular map updates, real-time traffic updates. A function that allows you to search for the lowest gas prices, coffee houses and WiFi spots closest to you.

With Gokivo and AT&T apps already out, are you still waiting for TomTom to deliver the goods or are you ready to jump on board now and go with AT&T or Gokivo?

  2. Interesting has anyone used this on a different device? I wonder how good it really is. Regardless I don’t think I would pay $120 a year for it unless it totally kicked ass. I looked at their site and it didn’t do much to sell me on its capability actually it looked terrible compared to the GPS devices I have used. If someone else gets it I will check it out for sure 😉
