TeleNav for T-Mobile G1

GPS hardware and software maker TeleNav on Thursday announced it will begin offering its Telenav GPS Navigator service to owners of the Android-based T-Mobile G1. The service, available on numerous other handsets in the industry and carriers that include AT&T and Sprint, will be launched on February 24th for the G1, and will allow users to receive turn-by-turn driving directions, traffic alerts with re-routing and more than 10 million searchable business listings. In addition, users will be able to access nearby gas prices, weather updates and restaurant reviews.

The software also supports voice recognition, making it safer to enter destinations while driving. Planning longer trips can also be done on TeleNav's website and sent to the handset for later.

At first, TeleNav will offer the GPS Navigator only through its website, but the application will be offered at the Android Market later this year. Through TeleNav, users will be able to get a free one-month trial of the program, with the service costing about $10 a month after the trial period for unlimited access to the service. [via Crave]
