3DVU announces Way2Go 3D mobile mapping

Watch out, Google Maps for Mobile. One company thinks it has a better 3D navigational experience for Symbian and Windows Mobile phones.

Way2Go's 3D mobile mapping

For the hopelessly turned around, 3DVU announced Way2Go at CES this week, a mobile app and online mapping service that will let you put personalized 3D routes on your mobile phone.

Subscribers to the new Way2Go service will be able to create up to 30 3D aerial picture routes online, which they'll then be able to access from their cell phones through a downloadable viewer. GPS tracking and verbal and written directions will also be there to keep you on course.

In addition to using routes to get from point A to point B, the service lets you forward routes that your contacts can view and use themselves for free.

Way2Go's service will cost about $5 per month and will be available by the end of March on Symbian S60 and Windows Mobile phones, and to users in the U.S., U.K., and select Western European countries.

It will be interesting to see this service go head-to-head with Google Maps for Mobile, which currently provides driving directions and street view for free to select phones.
