Ease-of-use navigation

If you've ever been frustrated trying to enter an address into a navigation system, you'll be thrilled with what the people at TeleNav are doing. The company, which provides navigation to numerous automakers for their built-in systems, is on a mission to make navigation easier.

It's also currently working with automakers to integrate its Scout app to their cars' built-in navigation systems, which means you'll be able to enter a destination from your smartphone before you leave the house and have it automatically transfer to the in-car system once you begin your journey.
