    maybe you should email them asking if they have plans to port the app over?

    Why would you want to pay for a different service that is a major part of your current phone and its free? You have a money tree out back or something!

    It doesn't have to be pretty as long as it gets the job done. Plus it will cache your route in case you lose data service.

    I disagree, I've found Google Navigation to be pretty spot on and the voice is nice and loud. To each his/her own.

    To me, telenav looks like a phones nav, google nave looks like what you'd find on any good PNA. I admit the voice isn't as good, but its not that bad. There some pretty neet things you get with google nave that you don't with telenav!!!!

    Don't get your hopes up.....I bet it'll be atleast a year if they even do a android version at all! Not that big of a deal though.....kinda makes you get used to a GREAT navigation now!

    Why would Telenav waste their time and resources to make a version for Android that will just compete directly with the free version from Google?

    Good luck on ever seeing it.

    I was going to say the same thing. I imagine there's a large portion of droid owners who will be very happy with Google Maps Navigation, or at least happy enough that they won't spend $10 per month on Telenav. This really cuts down on Telenav's incentive to release an Android version.

    Very helpful. :rolleyes:

    I've used Telenav, Garmin Mobile, Viamoto and others. Despite its clunky interface, I preferred Viamoto hands down over the others because of the clearly spoken, accurate guidance it provided while I was driving. I would have paid for Viamoto even if the others were free. Apparently I was in the minority, because Telenav and Garmin Mobile are still available, and Viamoto was discontinued.

    I think in this case the OP is also in the minority. While I don't personally see the attraction of Telenav when compared to Google Maps Navigation, I can understand the OP's position.

    Telenav has a version for Android devices. Sprint Nav is Telenav with Sprint branding, and every Hero or Moment ships with it installed.

    I was going to say the same thing. Plus there are other nav programs out for Android. Perhaps because you're on version 2, they aren't compatible yet.

    If anyone is interested on how to add addresses and/or look up businesses on the web and sync them to their navigator's "favorites", here is the link: TeleNav - Voice directions on your GPS phone

    Home screen > Settings > Text-to-speech

    there you can set different languages

    you can change the voice. I prefer the British English voice

    I found that setting speech speed to slow helped make it clearer

    It's a matter of opinion. Just like the OP, I also miss Telenav. Although free is always good, I was more comfortable with Telenav (on my Storm2) and there were more option (like shortest route, fastest, etc .. google nav has just two). And now that I am getting my hands on Verizon Fascinate tomorrow, I will not be able to use Google Maps as the Big Red Monsters have locked it down. I am on the look out for something similar to Telenav (but not VZ Navigator) that speaks street names as well as turn by turn directions. Anyone?

    No speaking of street names yet but have a look at copilot and ndrive in the market. No data connection is required and rerouting is faster...One time fee too..

    I have no trouble using Google Maps and Nav on my Big Red Monster Fascinate. I hope by now you have it on yours.
    I am looking for an alternative because Google Nav for me leads me too often astray. It just isn't anywhere near as accurate as I need it. Too many opposite way turns and mis-location of businesses, residences on their maps. Street addresses, even when entered absolutely correctly are frequently quite a ways off their true location.
