AT&T and Motorola announced today at CTIA Wireless 2008 that the MOTO Z9 slider handset, which is exclusive to AT&T in the U.S., will be the first phone to include AT&T Navigator, bringing the company's Global Positioning System (GPS) navigation service to an even greater number of AT&T customers.
AT&T Navigator is designed to provide you with clear and precise audible and visual turn-by-turn driving directions, including full-color moving maps, using GPS directly from your wireless phone. Working with TeleNav, whose navigation service has been available on AT&T PDAs since 2006, AT&T is now introducing its own branded next-generation GPS navigation service for all consumers.
Another feature of AT&T Navigator is real-time traffic updates and route information available directly from your phone.
You can get an estimated time of arrival for every route, plus constant updates as you go along so that you always know how long the trip will take — and can tell friends when to expect you. AT&T Navigator also provides both flow (average speed of traffic along your route) and incident information (auto accidents, freeway construction, etc.) along your route, so you have the ability to navigate around any issues and save time.
MOTO Z9 is now available. It's exclusively sold at AT&T company-owned stores, authorized dealers and the AT&T site for $249.99 after a two-year service agreement.
