AT&T Navigator/Telenav Mini-Update: Contacts Integration
For anyone who uses the AT&T Navigator by Telenav GPS app.:
Telenav just released their first upgrade for their iphone app a couple of hours ago. One of the most glaring omissions from the app has finally been added: contacts integration (about friggin' time).
A word of warning: I know that after I upgraded the app, it would crash EVERY SINGLE TIME I tried to navigate to an address (this has already been reported to Telenav). I don't know if this happened to everyone who upgraded today, but I do know of at least one other person who had the same experience an hour ago. Obviously, there's some bug in the upgrade process here.
What I found that works: delete the app, then reinstall it. It will then work flawlessly.

Now Supports navigating to contact address, but
This release fixes one of the big deficiencies in this app. Now Supports navigating to contact address. However, when I tred to use this feature it rejected my contact on the basis that it was not in the US.
I deleted the app and re-downloaded as suggested by one person here. No joy. I checked the address to see what country it showed. Showed US. Tried again, again no joy. I reset the country in the contact to US. this time it worked.
Hope that I do not have to reset every contact in order to be able to navigate to it.

RE: the Bluetooth headphones - can't help you there, either, since I've never tried them. Like I said before in the past, I play the voice prompts (with music) over the car stereo using an FM transmitter.

I too experienced the crash whenever I tried to start the navigation. But I just deleted and reinstalled, and that seems to have fixed it. But I still cannot navigate to any of my contacts (all in the US, with the country listed as USA). Is there a support contact for this app?

As Jeremy said, you can send a tweet to @telenav.
You can also e-mail their main rep Mary Beth Lowell at Marybethl@telenav.com
She's great with tech support issues or any problems Telenav users have -- she'll probably need your cell # as well.

I've been toying around with the updated Telenav app and have noticed 2 other possible upgrades:
1) Routing algorithms have apparently been improved...I can think of 2 routes I take daily where the directions have been upgraded/fixed.
2. The "lag" effect (so common in GPS apps that stream live data OTA) seems to have been improved a tiny bit as well. It still needs some work, but the app doesn't appear to lag behind as badly when you start moving again after coming to a complete stop (say at a stop light).
I'm hoping they fix the voice volume/quality and give us landscape mode. Speed warnings would be sweet as well, though no version of Telenav (on any phone) has ever had that, AFAIK. Ad far as getting something like reality-lane assist...meh, it's a nice feature, but not a necessity. I'd rather they spend time on fixing, say, the voice for example.
