Get Santa’s Voice for Your TeleNav GPS Navigator on your Phone to Guide you these Holidays

This holiday season you don't need the same old voice to guide you around when you are driving, what you need is Santa Claus. And you can get the good ol' fella to do this for just $0.99, that's right, since yesterday, you can purchase and download Santa’s voice either via your phone or via TeleNav.com. If you normally drive around using the TeleNav on your Android smartphone, then this one might be for you. Because who doesn't get tired of the same voice giving you GPS directions every single time. That's why TeleNav has come to the rescue with Santa's Voice, to give you directions. But you have to hurry, you can only download it throughout the month of December. TeleNav will donate ALL proceeds to Toys for Tots. So now you can get Santa to help guide you around this season and help children in need at the same time. To download via your phone you just launch TeleNav GPS Navigator and select “Share and More”, then select “Preferences”, go to “Navigation Audio” and select “Guide Tones”, there you need to select “Santa Claus” and voila! You ready to go. Or you can also visit TeleNav's website to download. Go to TeleNav.com and select “My TeleNav” on the top right (you’ll need your PIN number to login), go to “My Settings”, select “Device Settings” and then choose “Santa Claus”. The Santa Clause voice is only compatible with TeleNav GPS Navigator v. 5.5 and 5.8. So, if you need to find out which phones support these versions, click here.

Android-based SatNav on a Dashboard by next year in China?

According to Chinese firm ArcherMind Technology, this is the world’s first embedded Android-based navigation system. It comes with a seven inch touchscreen (WVGA 800×480) display and is capable of web browsing over 3G or Wi-Fi. The ArcherMind SatNav was demoed at the Embedded Technology tradeshow in Japan, and quickly caught the attention of many. Who wouldn't like to have an Android on the dash of his/her car, right? Unfortunately, it appears there's no plans to release this gadget in America any time soon. This device runs on a Marvell processor, it also has a hard drive and SD slot, is capable of playing your music, and it can even send SMS messages. The Android SatNav will be able to provide carmakers an advanced system for next generation car infotainment device, according to ArcherMind. And apparently, one unnamed Chinese auto maker is considering this device to be available in Q1 2010 in their cars. [Via SlashGear]
