FierceWireless Names TeleNav as one of Its "Fierce 15" Wireless Companies of 2007
TeleNav on Leading Edge of Wireless Technology

Sunnyvale, CA – April 23, 2007 – TeleNav Inc., the first company to launch a GPS navigation application on mobile devices in the U.S., announced today that it has been named to the annual FierceWireless “Fierce 15” list, designating it as one of the top wireless companies of the year. FierceWireless editors evaluated hundreds of organizations, and found TeleNav to be amongst the “fiercest,” proven by its creativity and innovations in the marketplace. FierceWireless, an internationally recognized daily email newsletter reaching more than 74,000 senior wireless industry executives, provides executives in over 100 countries with a quick, authoritative briefing on the day’s top wireless stories, including new trends and technologies. “TeleNav has gained steam with carriers, handset makers, business and government organizations and consumers,” said Sue Marek, editor-in-chief of FierceMarkets. TeleNav is a global leader in wireless location-based services (LBS), including GPS navigation, Mobile Resource Management (MRM), asset GPS tracking (AVL) and local search. The company’s award-winning flagship product, TeleNav GPS Navigator™, is comparable to in-car systems found in luxury vehicles, but offers a superior experience with functionality such as automatically updated maps and business locations, full color 3D moving maps, traffic alerts and one-click rerouting, speech recognition, Wi-Fi hotspot finder, lowest price fuel finder and more. TeleNav also launched the first mobile phone-based tracking service with integrated voice and visual GPS navigation, electronic time-sheet reporting and interactive dispatching. For managing a mobile workforce, TeleNav Track™ increases productivity, reduces operational costs and improves customer service. Features of TeleNav Track include real-time GPS tracking and reporting, wireless timesheets, wireless job dispatching, wireless forms, wireless barcode scanning and mobile phone navigation. “We are thrilled to be recognized by FierceWireless, the industry’s must-read news leader,” said Dr. HP Jin, president, CEO and co-founder. “The wireless community depends on FierceWireless to provide the most up-to-date news along with analysis of major industry trends. It is an honor to be recognized by such a well-regarded news outlet.” The FierceWireless “Fierce 15” celebrates the spirit of being “fierce” – championing innovation and creativity, even in the face of intense competition. The complete list of winning companies is available today in a special issue of FierceWireless and on the FierceWireless Web site at http://www.fiercewireless.com.
