Cricket Customers Get Turn-by-Turn
Prepaid carrier Cricket Communications announced the availability of Cricket Navigator, a new voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation solution that will be exclusive to Cricket customers.
The new Cricket Navigator will feature a few extras, including gas price search, hyper-local search, traffic updates and local entertainment information.
"Cricket users have been buzzing for a premium turn-by-turn navigation solution, and we believe Cricket Navigator will be just what they've been looking for," said Jeff Toig, vice president/general manager of voice/data services for Cricket, in a statement.
Cricket Navigator will be powered by TeleCommunication Systems (TCS).
Cricket Navigator can be downloaded from Cricket's Games and Apps catalog and is currently available on the Samsung MyShot II device. Over the coming weeks, the application will be rolled out to more phones and will be available on the majority of Cricket devices by the end of this summer.
Cricket Navigator will be offered in Cricket's new nationwide $50 and $60 rate plans and available as a bolt-on to the new nationwide $30 and $40 rate plans.
