“We are very grateful for the recognition from such a well-respected organization,” said HP Jin, president, CEO and co-founder of TeleNav. “TeleNav Shotgun has combined the features of a large screen GPS device with the benefits of connected navigation. It is a powerful tool for frequent business travelers.”
Launched last November, TeleNav Shotgun leverages the wireless network to provide real-time, connected features for business travelers including traffic alerts, Internet content (maps and business listings), gas prices and business reviews. With TeleNav Shotgun, users have access to up-to-date information, can preplan trips online and can download and export data such as mileage driven for each trip.
“This year, we focused on ‘must-have technology’ when deciding winners and TeleNav Shotgun is a ‘must have’ for any business traveler,” said Seybold. “With TeleNav Shotgun, TeleNav has raised the bar for GPS navigation.”
In 2002, Seybold, a well-known and well-respected wireless industry analyst, established the Andrew Seybold Choice Awards to recognize the accomplishments of companies developing leading-edge technologies, devices, services, and applications that will change the way people view and use wireless in their everyday lives.
