Telefónica O2 Germany gives its customers a complete navigation system, effective immediately. It doesn’t matter whether you are travelling by car or on foot: almost any GPS-enabled mobile phone will become a pocketsized route planner with Telmap Navigation - including the latest traffic information from ADAC. Telmap Navigation uses spoken and graphical navigation instructions to guide the user to the desired destination in a precise and step-by-step manner. It is as reliable and easy as a conventional navigation system in a car. The solution is also ideal for pedestrians. For example, you can navigate to the most important sights when visiting a city and at the same time it will show you any bars, restaurants or hotels that are close by.

O2 offers this service to its customers for free - regardless of whether it is a prepaid or fixed-term agreement. The only fees are for the mobile data transmission. Thus, using the mobile surf flat rate from O2 is recommended.

The requirement is a GPS-enabled mobile phone. Effective immediately, the application is preinstalled on many new GPS-enabled mobile phones. Customers who are already using GPS-enabled mobile phones can download the new solution directly to their phones at http://wap.telmap.com/o2de/. Corresponding clients are already available, for example for Android and Windows Mobile smartphones like the Motorola Milestone, HTC HD2, Samsung Galaxy and Sony Ericsson W995. A version for Palm webOS smartphones is planned for the summer of 2010.

Cheers ~ Arne
