BlackBerry Navigator Launched in UK Beta Zone; Offers Turn-by-Turn Navigation from TomTom

Previously it was announced that RIM would be using TomTom for an upcoming navigation app in BlackBerry 10. Turns out, there is also going to be a BlackBerry 7 version too.

BlackBerry Navigator has been launched for UK users in Beta Zone. Here’s some of its features:

Navigation & Traffic

  • Real-time turn-by-turn spoken directions to destination
  • Automatic re-routing if a turn is missed.
  • Preview route steps and upcoming turns.
  • Trip summary and overview map with entire trip highlighted.
  • 3D map view simulates what the user should expect to see ahead.
  • Spoken directions include both maneuvers and actual street name pronunciations so that users can focus on the road and not the screen for a safer driving experience.

Local Search

  • Local Search – provides information for nearby hotels and restaurants as well as other POIs, such as businesses, attractions, and events. Narrow the search by choosing sub-categories.
  • One-touch calling feature – dials the place’s phone number for the subscriber.
  • Save directory results to the address book for future use.
  • Home screen shortcuts – Easily create home screen shortcuts for “click to go” to frequent or important destinations.

Extras

  • 7 digits postcode support
  • BBM Integration – Send location enabled messages to your BBM contacts.
  • Facebook – Keep your friends and family updated by posting your location or favorite cafe to Facebook.
  • Contacts App Integration – Get directions to a contact right from your device’s contacts.
  • Day/Night Mode – Automatic Day and Night Mode.
