iPhone Getting Turn-by-Turn Navigation Instructions


ABIResearch.com - March 17, 2009

Upcom­ing iPhone OS 3.0 soft­ware will sup­port turn-by-turn nav­i­ga­tion instruc­tions by unlock­ing core loca­tion APIs for third par­ty devel­op­ers. This will mean more com­pe­ti­tion in a strug­gling PND mar­ket, and a new mar­ket for nav­i­ga­tion soft­ware ven­dors like Tele­nav, Garmin, and Tom­Tom, which already have iPhone-com­pat­i­ble nav­i­ga­tion soft­ware they weren’t able to sell pre­vi­ous­ly.
