TeleNav to guide U.S. Cellular smartphones

U.S. Cellular smartphones are getting a little more direction, thanks to a new partnership with TeleNav.

TeleNav

U.S. Cellular is teaming with TeleNav to bring turn-by-turn navigation to the carrier's smartphones.

On Friday, the carrier announced its Your Navigator Deluxe service that offers such features as voice-guided directions, 3D maps, speech recognition, more than 12 million business listings, and traffic and weather information. Even better, there isn't an additional fee to use TeleNav as it's all included in U.S. Cellular's new smartphone data plan, which costs $30 per month.

Supported smartphones include the recently announced Samsung Acclaim, as well as the HTC Touch Pro2, HTC Snap, the RIM BlackBerry Tour 9630, the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8530, and the Samsung i225. You can find the full list of compatible devices on TeleNav's Web site.
