MapMyIndia has tied up with Telenav, a personal navigation company to release an iPhone app that offers house number search and navigation. The Navigator house search app iPhone and iPad users in India will do the house number searching for you and will also offer voice-guided turn-by-turn GPS navigation as well as moving maps.

Users can search and navigate to house numbers in 18 cities, reach any of the 579,000 towns and villages and navigate at street-level across 1,200 cities in India.

Rohan Verma, Director, MapMyIndia said, "The exciting partnership between MapMyIndia and Telenav has resulted in India’s first app that offers house number search and navigation. Our aim is to let more and more people experience how navigation simplifies their daily lives."  

MapMyIndia is offering a promotional price for the application – users can try MapMyIndia Navigator for $3.99 for one month. An ongoing subscription can be purchased for $29.99 for one year. The MapMyIndia app Navigator by Telenav provides voice guided, turn by turn GPS navigation, moving maps and access to many places for search and discovery. All maps and information for places are cloud based and are updated regularly.

The application has millions of places and points of interest to choose from – either by category or name - including restaurants, ATMs, hotels, hospitals and more. Users can then select and navigate to the destination chosen and save frequent destinations as favorites.

Hassan Wahla, Vice President of Business Development, Telenav Inc. says, "With the growth in smartphones and 3G data connectivity, India is a fast-growing market for mobile navigation and we believe that this navigation app is a must have on every smartphone."

The application automatically generates a new route if the driver misses a turn. You can shake your phone to instantly start navigation to their home address from wherever you are. On major highways, the application notifies drivers when they exceed the posted speed limit. The application switches to night-time mode automatically, allowing for safer viewing conditions while driving at night.

The cities in which the app will work are New Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Chandigarh, Gurgaon, Faridabad, Noida, Greater Noida, Ghaziabad, Navi Mumbai, Thane, Kalyan, Pune, Pimpri Chinchwad, Mohali and Panchkula.
