Symphony Teleca and HERE Maps have teamed up to bring the walking navigation to the Samsung Galaxy Gear through the TurnByTurn app. Symphony Teleca has pitched its TurnByTurn app on Nokia HERE’s Android SDK, that allows the company to feature its location services to the Galaxy Gear. This will work by on Galaxy smartphone running Android 4.3 and above and this will later sync with the Gear. Once synced, your Galaxy Gear takes full control on the navigations thereby saving a considerable amount of your smartphone battery.
In addition to just showing directions, TurnByTurn’s Gear UI gives voice assistance also. Symphony Teleca is working on Tizen as well which means that this navigation app is likely to feature the latest released Gear 2 and gear 2 Neo. We may soon see the application within few days in the Play Store.
