TeleNav’s HTML5 browser based navigation service


TeleNav recently announced the HTML5-based navigation service that works on any platform since it is browser based. It claims to be a full pledged voice guided turn-by-turn navigation service with moving maps and automatic rerouting in case you miss turns. Oh yeah.. it will also be completely free. Take that Google Maps!

With this technology any mobile website (say a restaurant) can provide an address and from within your browser you can start navigating there. Or you run a website with many address and with only one line of code you’ll give your users the ability to start navigating without leaving the browser.

Currently the service is only available for developers for testing but their blog says it should be available publicly in early 2012.
