Vodafone Sat Nav launched for consumers


Vodafone has extended its own-brand Sat Nav service to consumers following its launch to the business market last year.

‘Vodafone Sat Nav’, powered by Telmap, will initially be made available on the Nokia N95 and N95 8GB as well as the Nokia 6110 for £5 a month, with the first month free. It will be free for 12 months with the BlackBerry Pearl 8110.

Vodafone Sat Nav provides users with both in-car and pedestrian navigation, featuring 3D maps, and instant access to live traffic alerts and points-of-interest such as hotels, restaurants, shopping and attractions.

Vodafone UK consumer business director Ian Shepherd said: “Following the success of Vodafone Sat Nav with our business customers, we know that consumers also want Sat Nav on their mobile phones.

“This launch marks a significant milestone as the first operator-branded mobile navigation service for UK consumers.”
