AT&T has announced the roll-out of their AT&T Navigator Global Edition. This truly global cell phone GPS system allows AT&T customers to use their GPS-enabled AT&T phones to navigate with GPS all around the world.
Verizon Wireless has had GPS on some of their phones for some time, but AT&T is the first to tout a truly international – indeed global, they say – cell phone GPS system.
According to an AT&T statement, “AT&T Navigator Global Edition will be particularly useful to customers traveling to China in August for the Summer Olympics. AT&T customers will be able to use AT&T Navigator Global Edition in the six cities hosting Olympics events â€” Beijing, Shanghai, Qingdao, Shenyang, Tianjin and Qinhuangdao.”
In addition to the six Chinese Olympic cities, the AT&T Global Navigator service includes most countries in western Europe, North America and the U.S. Caribbean, and is available on AT&T Blackberries, the AT&T Tilt, the BlackJack II, and the Moto Q.
If you are currently using the AT&T Navigator Global Edition, we’d love to hear from you – what do you think of the service?
