Telmap and BlueSky bring navigation to GPS-less phones

Telmap and BlueSky Positioning have announced a cooperation to bring for the first time ever, real-time search, mapping and navigation to mobile phones, with A-GPS SIM.

This cooperation showcases the ability of BlueSky Positioning’s A-GPS technology to incorporate navigation onto mobile phones which lack integral GPS capabilities.

BlueSky Positioning’s A-GPS technology, embedded into a phone’s SIM card, together with Telmap’s search, mapping and navigation solution enable effortless on-the-go experience, including excellent in-car navigation sessions with 3D moving maps, multi-lingual turn-by-turn directions with street names using text-to-speech, as well as traffic and speed camera information (where available).

Telmap’s solution also includes unique pedestrian navigation, guiding users through pedestrian-only areas such as parks, squares, passages, and stairs, tracking user’s progress as they walk. The Telmap – BlueSky Positioning cooperation allows smart and mid-range phone users to access real-time location information without the need to invest in location-aware hardware.
