AT&T launches AT&T Navigator

AT&T launches AT&T Navigator
The number 1 U.S. carrier released its company-branded GPS-enabled navigation service, AT&T Navigator. The new feature is available for all GPS-capable PDAs and phones and it provides audible and visual turn-by-turn driving directions, including built-in speech recognition (currently available only for BlackBerry devices) for address entry and points of interest search directly from your phone. The last option is activated when you press a single button on your phone and speak the name of the business or address you want to find and the Navigator will help you get there. The GPS service includes mobile access to YELLOWPAGES.COM, real-time traffic updates and route information, ETA calculation for every route, plus constant updates. The Navigator also provides both flow (average speed of traffic along your route) and incident information (auto accidents, freeway construction, etc.). Another interesting feature is the Gas By Price feature. It gives you directions to the nearest gas stations, sorted lowest to highest price.



The AT&T Navigator is currently available on the MOTO Z9 as well as the Samsung BlackJack II, MOTO Q, AT&T Tilt, and BlackBerry devices (8310, 8800 and 8820). AT&T Navigator will also come preloaded on GPS-enabled devices that will be offered with the carrier in the future. At present, AT&T customers with compatible handsets can get the service as a free 30-day trial. If you wish to continue the service after the trial period has ended, you can either pay a monthly subscription charge of $9.99 for unlimited routes or, for Motorola Z9 users, you can use the service with the $2.99 Day Pass option.

Every gps capable device already has gps nav software in it , the only purpose of this service is if you are looking for sth like restaurants . But if you don't know where you want to go even gps won't help you.

Telenav was already preinstalled on my Tilt and Blackberry 8820, and this just looks to be a branded version of that service....

It's about time! Verizon has already had their service for like at least a year.

at&ts slogan should be changed from this ( your world delivered ) to ( Your Wallet Drained)

I don't understand what the problem is. It's all about options. If you want to use all the features for what it's worth, then buy it. If you don't then don't. But there is consumers that do see the value in it and this is great for ATT. Google maps is terrible, It does not give you GPS turn by turn directions with audio and all the features this is offering. Good Job ATT for giving customers more options. Example folks, wasn't the standard recurring Navigator service on Verizon last year like 240k people? At $10/mo you do the math. ATT was stupid not to offer a service like Verizon and Sprint. If you don't want it, then don't use it. I'm so sick of the bickering on this forum about everything. If you have nothing to contribute or have used it to say why you like it, and reasons you don't like using it. Then keep your mouths shut. People come here for quality information. Not for a B***h fest.

looks just like VZ Navigator that i use, which is an AWESOME piece of software, $10 a month? i can use it for 3 years before i pay for a dash mount GPS...these cell company provided GPS systems are awesome and there is alot of money involved in it

I'm new to GPS on the smartphone. I have AT&T and I can't figure out what it's going to cost to use the device. Customer Service told me that I would want to buy the Media Package, at $30 a month in addition to the $9.99 for Navigator. If I don't need to know traffic conditions, is there any reason to buy the Media Package? Thanks.
