An Industry First: GPS Navigation Bundled in Data Packs


OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - Sprint (NYSE:S) customers will soon have the power of GPS-enabled navigation service included at no additional charge. Sprint Navigation powered by TeleNav will give customers the power of a full-featured GPS navigation device on select Sprint phones, and unlimited use of Sprint Navigation will be included in the new Sprint Power VisionSM Navigation Pack, along with two other existing data packs.

Sprint Navigation will give customers voice-guided and on-screen turn-by-turn GPS-enabled driving directions, which speaks street names for each turn, 3-D moving maps similar to an in-car navigation system or personal navigation device as well as real-time intelligent traffic alerts and one-click rerouting. They will also have access to local search with more than 10 million points of interest, lowest price gas finder and destination entry by speech instead of text or phone number.

"Pre-trip planning will provide flexible options for Sprint data customers to easily access the most complete GPS navigation service right on their phone, when and where they want to,” said George Ranallo, director of wireless data applications for Sprint. “Whether subscribing to a data pack that offers unlimited access or using the service on a pay-per-day basis, customers will have the power to use Sprint Navigation in the way that best fits their needs.”

Sprint Navigation will be available in April on most Power Vision phones, including the Motorola RAZR, Motorola KRZR and FUSIC by LG.
