TeleNav hybrid navigation tech
TeleNav has released information on its upcoming hybrid navigation technology, while FileMaker has announced three free Starter Solution packs for FileMaker Go
TeleNav has launched a new hybrid navigation technology that can allow users to navigate using either real-time data sent over a wireless network or through data cached on a device. Applications that incorporate this new technology will be capable of automatically switching between the two methods, which will help to ensure users always have access. While over-the-network navigation will provide additional features and real-time data, on-device navigation will still offer turn-by-turn directions to business, local landmarks, and addresses. TeleNav will first be made available through the AT&T Navigator app for the iPhone, with other select applications set to gain the technology in the near future.
FileMaker outs three free Starter Solution packs for FileMaker Go
Three free FileMaker Go Starter Solutions for managing contacts, documents, and assets have been released. Contacts allows users to manage all of their business and personal contacts on an iPhone or iPad, with support for organizing multiple contacts into defined categories, while Documents can be used to organize business documents. In addition, Assets allows for the tracking of different assets, with support for organizing serial numbers, value lists, purchase dates, and more. The new Starter Solutions have been designed to be customized using FileMaker Pro on a desktop, and can be downloaded alongside a free 30-day trial of FileMaker Pro 11.
