TeleCommunication Systems Inc., a leading global provider of secure mobile communication technology, today announced that the Gokivo(R) Navigator iPhone application won the 2009 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award from Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC).

The Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award is given to companies displaying vision, leadership and thoroughness.

“Gokivo Navigator turns any GPS-enabled mobile phone into a personal navigation device and TMC is pleased to recognize it as a 2009 Product of the Year Award,” Rich Tehrani, TMC’s CEO stated in the press release. “Congratulations to the entire team at TCS. I look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the future.”

The Gokivo Navigator, the first real-time turn-by-turn navigation application made available in the Apple App Store, offers visual and voice-prompted directions for drivers and pedestrians; real-time traffic alerts; an iPhone music library; 3D moving maps to quickly display the location of an address or point of interest; current location and map alert; and the ability to share geo-coded locations with friends via e-mail.

Additionally, the Gokivo Navigator’s small application size in comparison to many other navigational applications allows room for storing music, video and other applications.

“The demand for mobile location-based applications continues to grow dramatically and we pride ourselves on creating competitive solutions while aligning with our customer’s needs,” Doug Antone, TCS senior vice president of the navigation and telematics group stated. “We are honored that TMC recognized Gokivo Navigator. As the developer of the first ever turn-by-turn navigation application that Apple offered in their App Store, we continue to innovate and bring unique solutions to market.”
