This is interesting. TeleNav has announced the world’s first HTML5 navigation service. What this means is that a developer can let you click on an address, in an app or on a website, to launch a free browser-based, turn-by-turn navigation service with voice directions. You won’t need to have the TeleNav app on your phone and it won’t rely on other maps your phone may have access to, such as Google Maps. The public launch is slated for early next year, but they’re already letting developers test the service. Pretty cool, huh?
Here’s the full news release.
