Intrinsyc Software International, Inc. today announced that LG Electronics has begun shipping Destinator 9 on select smartphones. The turn-by-turn, voice-guided GPS navigation software is currently shipping on the LG GM730, LG's latest Windows Mobile Professional smartphone, which features the S-Class UI overlay. LG is launching smartphones with Destinator software in Singapore, with subsequent product rollouts planned for other Asian countries, including India, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand. Destinator navigation and it's routing engine is integrated on LG smartphones with other third-party applications including GyPSii, the market-leading geo-mobility social networking platform and service.

LG GM730 smartphone users can now employ Destinator to get turn-by-turn directions to any location from within the Gypsii application. Additionally, Destinator 9 enables users to search for Points of Interest (POI) using most of the popular search engines as well as browse through their contacts or text messaging inbox to choose a destination address.

The newest version of Destinator is said to deliver the mobile industry's highest quality user experience in navigation devices, with a host of new capabilities and features designed to get people to their destinations easily, quickly, and safely. Users can find information faster with fewer clicks using innovative new features such as NavStrip, Tap N Go, Online Search, StickyPOI, and Gesture Recognition.

Audio and visual turn-by-turn navigation features include an on-screen speed limit indicator with audible warning; broad geographic map coverage with current maps from multiple sources; optional visual lane guidance to eliminate confusion at complicated interchanges; optional safety camera support; and support for all major languages.

When using the AGPS of the LG gm730, do we need  a data plan? or does it work like a standalone gps without a need of any data plan?

No, in this case the A in GPS means that you can download additional data from a server to make the GPS fix faster. However, you can also use the GPS w/o A and therefore without an Internet connection, just like a standard GPS navigation device.
