Voice personalities include Santa Claus, a New York City cab driver and many others. To find out which wireless carriers offer the TeleNav service visit

TeleNav is the first mobile phone-based GPS navigation application that offers, turn-by-turn driving directions, full color moving maps and also audible driving directions through
voice personalities.

"We have been looking for ways to enhance and personalize the GPS navigation experience so that it meets the demands of our customers," said Dr. HP Jin, president and CEO of TeleNav. "The addition of our moving maps and voice personalities give consumers the features they want, at a price they can afford."

Unlike an in-car system, customers can use TeleNav by speaking a destination into an interactive voice response (IVR) system, or by keying in the address on the handset. Once the destination is specified, a route is calculated and TeleNav provides real-time, audible and graphical turn-by-turn directions over the mobile device. For trip planning, users can also enter multiple destination addresses using the TeleNav website at The TeleNav service also includes a Business Finder that can help users find nearby banks, restaurants, hotels or other businesses, and get driving directions with the touch of a button. TeleNav also automatically updates mapping and business listing data, saving consumers time and money.

The TeleNav GPS service is available starting at just $9.99 per month. The current voice personalities are available for free.
