Sony Ericsson selects Gokivo Navigator from Tele Communication Systems

To provide users with access to hyper-local search and navigation service

By CBR Staff Writer

Tele Communication Systems said that it will be powering the new turn-by-turn navigation on the Sony Ericsson Aspen smartphone with the Gokivo Navigator application preloaded, providing users with immediate access to hyper-local search and navigation service.

The navigation functions integrate with Sony Ericsson’s ‘On the Road’ panel, and users are able to press a ‘maps’ button to automatically launch Gokivo Navigator and provide immediate access to a voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation experience.

According to the Tele Communication Systems, the Gokivo Navigator includes the features such as local search; traffic and weather; and share your location. The navigator displays the current weather and weekly forecast information for any location and highlights any local traffic incidents with a view of the incident report details.

In addition, the share their location feature provides users the option to send a message to another mobile device with a geo-coded place. The message will allow the recipient to see a map or a route that shows them how to get to the original location.

Doug Antone, senior vice president of TCS’ navigation and telematics group, said: Consumers have come to expect turn-by-turn navigation on their mobile devices. At TCS, we strive to provide a product that gives users the peace of mind that they will always be able to find their destination.

“We have focused our expert development team on making sure Gokivo Navigator is tightly integrated with the core user experience of the Aspen phone, and we believe Sony Ericsson users around the world will appreciate the power of the device and application being put at their fingertips.
