TeleNav’s iPhone navigation app in works?

Even though their application isn’t among the first batch of “more than 500″ apps launched yesterday, TeleNav said it will develop a full-fledged GPS navigation app for the iPhone 3G. From what we’ve heard, users should expect full-color 3D maps, turn-by-turn voice guidance and traffic-aware routing — in a nutshell, all you need from such software.

One thing is not clear, though. As an iPhone app it will be sold through AppStore, which at the moment only lists free and fixed-fee applications and games. Maybe Apple will enable subscription-based charging for select partners? Or, users will have to grab the navigation app and buy maps separately? Or TeleNav won’t sell the application as a subscription service? Some questions still wait to be answered. Guess we’ll have to wait and see…
