TeleNav announces it will debut the world's first HTML5 browser-based navigation service
Everywhere we turn, it seems as though many things are going to the cloud – so it’s no surprise that we might soon see the same thing happening with GPS services.

In its quest to stay ahead of the competition, TeleNav announced its plans to bring to market the world’s first GPS navigation service based on HTML5 browser technology. When you think about it, they surely have something spectacular in the works considering that you won’t necessarily need to download or use an app to use the service. Rather, it’s all going up to the clouds, as any existing mobile web browser will be able to access the full arsenal of the service.

Even better, TeleNav is going to make it a free service, and it’ll even include features such as colorful maps, turn-by-turn spoken directions, and automatic rerouting – some of the normal things we tend to find with all GPS apps. As for an excepted availability date, TeleNav is projecting to have the service ready to go by early 2012.
