TeleNav has launched its popular OnMyWay application for the iPhone and Android devices. OnMyWay is a simple-to-use notification application that automatically alerts a pre-determined person or group of people of the sender's trip status and estimated time of arrival (ETA). The application will automatically send new alerts to contacts if the user?s ETA changes while they're en route to the meeting location, allowing them to keep their hands on the wheel and not worry about calling or texting others if they're running late. Here is more info on this new iPhone app:
? OnMyWay is a simple-to-use notification application that automatically alerts a pre-determined person or group of people of the sender?s trip status and estimated time of arrival (ETA). Drivers can quickly set an OnMyWay notification prior to getting on the road and the application will automatically send travel time updates based on location to designated contacts via text and/or e-mail.
? To create an OnMyWay notification, a user inputs a destination, enters a scheduled appointment time, selects or enters one or more phone numbers or e-mail addresses to send alerts to, and then hits start. The user?s address book is automatically integrated into the application to simplify information input. In addition, the sender has the option to attach a personal message to each notification.
? OnMyWay automatically notifies recipients of the sender?s ETA by text or e-mail so the user can focus on driving. It delivers an initial notification alerting the receiver when the driver has started his/her trip and includes an anticipated ETA based on GPS location. Following the initial alert, up to three additional status messages might be automatically sent based on the sender?s preferences. Additional alerts sent to the recipient include notification if the sender will be late for the appointment (with a new ETA), when the person is a pre-determined time (in minutes) away from the destination, and one minute from arriving. OnMyWay does not share the user?s specific location in any of the notifications.
